I’m much more sympathetic to the substance of Sunstein’s worldview than this reviewer but I’m genuinely puzzled by the sheer repetitiveness and lack of meaningful engagement with critics or the unfolding of events. https://t.co/r5h5X0FP3D — PolitiTweet.org

If you put me in charge of the central bank and I fail to generate inflation, the good news is you’ll all have an extra $10 million in your bank account plus no inflation. — PolitiTweet.org

Google in general seems both more exposed to antitrust litigation than the other big tech companies but also to provide the widest range of genuinely useful services. — PolitiTweet.org

A lot of focus on the evils of the big tech companies lately, but it’s also very nice to be able to get flawless bus directions in a totally unfamiliar city with a very complicated bus network from Google Maps. — PolitiTweet.org

The thing about Biden is the kind of Democrats who like him best — over fifty, didn’t go to college — are not the kind of people who staff campaigns or write takes or host podcasts or work on the Hill or for advocacy groups. — PolitiTweet.org

The best case for Bernie, I think, is that he demonstrates a lot of creativity about the ways to constructively use a prominent political platform that extend beyond the formal powers of office. https://t.co/VBkJLe3E1X — PolitiTweet.org

More broadly, given all the political upheaval in Europe it’s mind-boggling that there seems to be zero political or intellectual energy behind the ideas — bigger budget deficits & more stimulative monetary policy — that could fix the continent’s problems. — PolitiTweet.org

If I were to support Warren, it would be because she has clearest view of what can be achieved with existing statutory authority & also has the best housing policy. But I can come up with good arguments for a half dozen other contenders too. — PolitiTweet.org

I endorse this. They are separate human beings with different lives, different rhetorical tics, different personal relationships, different chromosomes, and tons of other differences. They are incredibly different. Except on policy where they’re the same. — PolitiTweet.org

I think it’s a consequence of the USSR collapsing. Under the Cold War context, western economic elites felt compelled to demonstrate that capitalist economies delivered shared growth. But without a credible threat of revolution, it’s all Ayn Rand summer camp with Paul Ryan. — PolitiTweet.org

It’s always interesting that the pitch Biden is making here — rich people should accept moderately higher taxes as the best way to maintain the existing social structure in the face of rising inequality — is in reality embraced by very few billionaires. — PolitiTweet.org

@nbeaudrot True but the biggest example by far of that being a less-partisan age was Tip O’Neil brining Reagan bills to the floor in 1981 so they could pass with Boll Weevil votes — i.e. the opposite of progressives getting things done. — PolitiTweet.org
