Amy Coney Barrett continues to be much more of a Roberts-type than an Alito or Thomas-type.

Love this, and it gets at why I'm for Garcia -- people talk about "running the government like a business" but what NYC needs is for government to run like a government. We need agencies to execute-- kids in school, cops following the rules, trash off sidewalks etc. https://t.co/rpZ8VCietM

Are there a lot of ATVs in the city? https://t.co/5BpRUyXTTH

Slate advice columns are a good place to go if you want to see crazy people receive terrible advice https://t.co/wawlg2t4uY

Sorry, how negative are interest rates in this example? https://t.co/8M0Y8CEZhi

See I told you it wasn’t that hawkish https://t.co/rToYPuKOiU

I dunno, doesn’t this make the dots significantly less hawkish than they seem? The rate forecast went up because the GDP and inflation forecasts went up. If the heat doesn’t materialize, neither should the rate hikes.

Joe Manchin was WV Secretary of State so I guess it makes sense he would have a lot of granular opinions about voting procedure https://t.co/x8vzeXh9he

My take on the big, fascinating NYT investigation on working at Amazon: The combination of the company's massive growth and the tight labor market is making its "churn-and-burn" labor model increasingly untenable. They need to be a nicer place to work. https://t.co/qBfLsQAc3r

This whole essay is kind of stupid, but especially this. If nobody wants to own bonds anymore, then how are yields so low? It’s not like the Fed owns all the bonds. If the calamity Cohan sees coming is inevitable, long yields should be spiking already. https://t.co/2xwl01AYjH

I’m confused by this story’s conceit that Wiley is one of two candidates especially connecting with black voters. As it notes far down, Marist gives her 11% of the black vote, worse than she does with whites or Hispanics. Adams has 43% of black voters. https://t.co/0XoAZguYJu

I don’t think @rortybomb or @JWMason1 were ever in denial of this, but one good thing about Trump being out of office is we can have a frank talk about how and why the economy was doing quite well for ordinary people in 2019. https://t.co/VJXXQau7jq

It's not even good PR. The case for a hot labor market requires pointing out that modest consumer price increases are a price worth paying, not pretending wages don't flow into prices. https://t.co/Q1vYIwkhlb

But the Manchin plan resembles the Georgia system in more fundamental ways (AVR, early voting, ID required, no-excuse absentee seen as a bonus option). Perhaps that's because Georgia voting law has long been a lot closer to the national average than critics acknowledge

It is not as fun to yell about as history curriculum choices but the stakes in the phonics debate seem a lot a higher. https://t.co/ryysvtHvQj

@jbarro It did not use to be like that. I miss @EmilyYoffe. She was damn good at the advice thing.

@jbarro like the receding tide reveals slow crabs still burrowing, the fading pandemic has revealed people with pre-existing untreated anxiety disorders who've enjoyed way too much affirmation of their total inability to cope with any risk or unpredictability whatsoever in life

I think Fed overdid upward revisions to inflation some but reasonable people can disagree. what they **do** matters most and they’re on track to support a recovery for all!!

Fascinating take on our story, echoing what some Amazon insiders fear: that Amazon's high turnover is not sustainable. "However well this model worked in the past," @jbarro aruges, "the company is now too large to use it." https://t.co/VVW5Fphjka

Deleting my dating apps because I want to meet someone the old fashioned way (sitting next to them on a flight).

I read Texas' purportedly "anti-CRT" bill and boy I don't see how this could go in an unexpected direction https://t.co/LCE5mXB14q

The parallel universe in which Mike Pompeo thinks he has a shot at the 2024 nomination is a rare source of pure comedy in contemporary politics.

"cheap restaurant meals" is not in and of itself a progressive value, i think.

It is possible for out of touch media elites to recognize Joe Biden’s deep political support without becoming in touch media hoi polloi. @jbarro & I sat in a bar in Neiman Marcus in the spring of 2019 and agreed Biden would win & the media would miss it https://t.co/m2vCS1QDsx

I like to think Republicans are recognizing that the refundable CTC does not feature the perverse incentive structure of the AFDC phaseout and that cash support for parents is pro-family and vastly superior to directing subsidy specifically at center-based child care. https://t.co/6poEipG0tz

This is great reporting. It conveys some balance, and doesn't just bash @amazon. One could teach an entire labor econ course off of the issues discussed -- incentives, turnover, monitoring, benefits, unions ... @nytimes The Amazon That Customers Don’t See https://t.co/ghtjJxGlIL

Sensible, humane approach to labor supply issues from Janet Mills who is using federal Covid money to finance re-employment bonuses. https://t.co/VZGFkoyVzz
