merry xmas! 2017 closing economics news... tax bill passes

Posted on December 26, 2017 at 11:00am 0 Comments

hi all, economics news last half year or so has been dominated by tax reform bill. in a word, yikes!

have been blogging on these topics for years, and every year it seems the headlines are more extreme. am trying to find some positive things to say. the public does seem to be more tuned into these issues than years ago, and maybe economics is starting to shift the political dialog into more egalitarian/ populist direcitons. there is finally some widespread acknowledgement about the…

manafort indicted on money laundering/ tax evasion! faces 80 yrs. all the trump connections, copious links

Posted on November 5, 2017 at 10:00am 1 Comment

hi all, manafort is a shady character, but at times he seems like the least shady character in this whole big mess. one might say the (Neo) Swamp™, but that would be ironic.

manafort has connections to the prior corrupt yanukovych govt of ukraine. hes a fallen president, and widely agreed to be corrupt. but my question is, is this "regime change" (in the anodyne talk of washington) merely/ really a falling out among thieves? or a turf war by two world mafias? the ukrainian…
