  • Bill Gates Is Clueless on the Economy

    Dean Baker for Truthout: Last week Bill Gates called for taxing robots. It's nice to see the world's richest person proposing a measure aimed at redistributing money. Unfortunately, his idea makes no sense. We must stop assuming that productivity growth is the enemy of workers.

  • CPAC Dispatch: How Donald Trump Killed Movement Conservatism

    Now that the "alt-right," personified by Stephen Bannon, is in the White House, conservative leaders are trying to assess the correct place for it within the greater movement.

Thanks to “Tax Notes”

In my post this morning on dynamic scoring and how to turn the United States into something closer to Greece, I requested that the publication Tax Notes bring an article by John Buckley out from behind their paywall (“Dynamic Scoring: Will S&P Have Company?,” published February 28, 2012.)

The publishers have now done so, for which I would like to thank them – this is a public service that is greatly appreciated.  I don’t know how long the article will remain in the open access part of their website, so I strongly advise anyone who cares about the fiscal future of this country to read it now (and tell your friends).

“Dynamic scoring” of U.S. budget proposals would be a disaster.
