Last quote by James Pethokoukis

75 percent of kids in the New York school system already get a subsidized lunch. That is not a group that's in the minority - that is most kids. I think that argues against the stigma argument. I want to focus on the kids who need it and make it even better for them, rather than expand it to kids who don't.feedback

Mar 02 2017 - Unemployment

I think if you talk to economists, they're a lot more skeptical, because this is not a new story. Worrying about automation and robots taking jobs–that has been a reoccurring concern since the industrial revolution. And while there have been some difficult transition periods where there has been unemployment or wages didn't go up, eventually things all sort of work out in the end. I think the baseline economist's expectation is that that might happen again: There might indeed be a very difficult transition period, but in the end there will be jobs and incomes will rise.feedback

Mar 02 2017 - Unemployment

So they've leaped ahead and started thinking about solutions. So, if you're worried about technological unemployment, the first thing you're going to think of is 'okay, if they're unemployed, we don't want anybody starving, so we're just gonna give everybody a basic income.'...I think it's an idea to consider. There are various flavors of the Basic Income. Right now I'd rather focus on getting people good jobs and training them rather than throwing up my hands and writing them a check.feedback

The idea that American corporations are going to have to make business decisions, not based on the fact that we've created an ideal environment for economic growth in the United States, but out of fear of punitive actions based on who knows what criteria exactly from a presidential administration. I think that's absolutely chilling.feedback

Nov 09 2016 - Federal Reserve

I think it's plausible that she would find this an intolerable situation where she not only doesn't have the confidence of the president, but that he thinks she's undermined the credibility and independence of the Fed.feedback

Oct 12 2016

If you are worried about political risk in 2017 and 2018, I think you need to take this into account.feedback

Apr 28 2016

I don't think there's going to be any taboos with Donald Trump. He's not going to treat her with any sort of kid gloves.feedback
