Last week I offered, from New York Magazine, Trump Nominates Famous Idiot Stephen Moore to Fed Board.
But Robert Samuelson, writing in the Washington Post, explains that . . .
The real reason that Stephen Moore does not belong on the Federal Reserve Board is not that he is unqualified for the job, though he is. Nor is it that he has been a highly partisan and divisive figure for many years, though he has been. The real reason is that, if confirmed by the Senate, Moore could become the Fed chairman — and that is a scary possibility. It could spawn a global financial calamity. . . .
Read the whole piece.
And have you gotten around to Michael Lewis’s The Fifth Risk?
And then there’s this: Michiko Kakutani’s The Death of Truth: Notes on Falsehood in the Age of Trump.
Up is down, black is white, truth is false.
Remember love and truth? Light and logic? Excellence and modesty?
Is there any trace of those in Trump?
