Never mind the part that, um, there’s an output side you are assigning value to. You know, the part where you are getting paid to do a thing with value? Jfc

Inequality

Why is it so hard to hand out of infinite jobs that require no skills, are completely insensitive to any shit decisions made by employees, and pay $15 plus benefits regardless of value of output or substitution methods of production?

25% of all jobholders are not in poverty

ETA prosperity now are commies.

ETA super weird you’d publish a study saying poor choices aren’t important but fail to control for choices. Almost like you didn’t try.

Re: Light laffs

The 5thC guys indicated the whole stinking thing was only info from public profiles. If that’s true this is truly the dumbest scandal of our lives. Which “whole thing”? Because it’s not like they’re under fire for only the Cambridge Analytica stuff at this point. I meant the CA stuff I guess.

Re: Cheap food, historically

I don't think it's the case that the lowest possible grade frozen foodstuffs would be better than what well off people were eating in 1900s america, but it's an interesting question at the other end of the scale. One thing that has happened is the democritization of variety. Right at about this time...

Random Observations C.A (306 pages is enough)

To be clear I think the right view is you can have whatever preferences you have and it’s fine. I’m only annoyed when people tell me there is a moral component to preferences in circumference but not altitude.

Oh it’s a percentages thing that applies variously at various stages of life, not a universal. It’s a thing though.

Re: Occam, Trump, and Russia

A friend of mine is running hard with the Carter Page was an FBI informant in 2013 angle. The idea is he helped them with some guy Podobny who got ejected from the country, so it can't be they thought he was a spy. I don't know what to do with that really.

Re: Twitter!

I had an outstanding AP history teacher (one of the three best high school teachers I ever had), but he hardly used the textbook (if there was ever one), he just lectured, but in a storytelling fashion (I just realized he was podcasting 20 years before that was a thing) This sounds like my teacher....
