For my money socialism has only ugly sides.
Well, it should be microeconomics or managerial economics rather than "macroeconomics". And I doubt an instructor could safely show this to a class in about 90% of American colleges and universities.
But aside from those quibbles, it's kinda fun.
Sounds like a terrific idea. Almost every university economics dept. should do this.
Economics@Work (Econ 208) is a class offered by the Department of Economics at the University of Michigan. In this course, undergraduates are offered a regular opportunity to interact with alumni from the Department of Economics.
It may well be unconstitutional: "Unconstitutional Medicare-For-All".
Think of the time people will have to spend documenting they're not required to pay the tax: "You may have to fill out a wealth tax return".
"Entitlement Liabilities Are a Graver Threat to the Next Generation of Americans Than Climate Change"
I'll second this.
How is that lots of people state that their prescription drug costs are rising at the same time that "total out-of-pocket costs for the population as a whole are flat or even decreasing"? Alex Tabarrok offers a nice, short explanation.
But he doesn't explain what is very surprising to me: the average number of prescriptions for 35-44 year olds is ten? For 45-54 year olds is 20?? (To be fair, there's a link to a document haven't read yet.)
UPDATE: O.K., I think I've got it now. The source document seems to indicate that a refill counts as a prescription. So one prescription refilled monthly would equal 12 "prescriptions" per year. It's not how I would use the term, but I'm not an expert.
New York City rediscovers the eternal truth of rent control.
Kevin Williamson patiently explains to Liberals something they either don't, or pretend not to, understand: "Rich people have options."
Just give some money to low-income people and cut out all the middlemen? Horrors!
So very true.
