@scottlincicome there you go. Close the border!
RT @KSoltisAnderson: Trump lawyer who made awful rape comments: "registered Democrat who voted for Barack Obama in 2008" https://t.co/zXxv308RFg
How will Trump tie this into immigration policy?
# people who've read @charlesmurray Bell Curve as low as # for Piketty. Imperfect (!!) but hugely important book https://t.co/64lQugHoWW
@biggsag @mckaycoppins clearly, 1950s case law
RT @NoahShachtman: Early #FF to the fearless @timkmak... http://t.co/CoSNgGsi11 http://t.co/OY23fQw4Ol
RT @greenfield64: In Harper Lee's next book, Atticus Finch morphs into Michael Cohen...
RT @greenhousenyt: The $15 minimum wage in NY, Seattle, L.A. & San Fran are highest of any state or major city in the world. http://t.co/4CL6mnWmIm @guardian
@JHWeissmann @bencasselman @ernietedeschi we're mutually respectful in that regard!
@TheAlanNoble @jeffspross you've seen that all this started this morning when I endorsed Dylan's view that this research is lousy evidence?
@JHWeissmann @bencasselman @ernietedeschi I support more work requirements 4 food stamps. Not inconsistent w thinking success seq oversimple
@JHWeissmann @bencasselman @ernietedeschi yes, tho w/o much evidence abt magnitude of importance, which cant be gleaned from lab experiments
.@jeffspross @DemFromCT whatevs--I also think Coates's writing is smart and needed. I don't agree fully with either. Shocker!
@JHWeissmann @bencasselman @ernietedeschi which was paternalistic but worked (despite my predictions at time)
@JHWeissmann @bencasselman @ernietedeschi that's an oversimplification,but GOP policy hasnt been great over years w exception of welf reform
@JHWeissmann @bencasselman @ernietedeschi all that said, I'm reading Coates & trying to figure out how I feel abt reparations qua justice
@JHWeissmann @bencasselman @ernietedeschi not as simple as telling poor (and/or black) people to choose differently OR giving them more $$
@JHWeissmann @bencasselman @ernietedeschi which is why I think we need better early childhood policy rather than less income inequality
@JHWeissmann @bencasselman @ernietedeschi ...because "personal attributes that contribute to success" are (at some point) more impt than $$
