All hail the real Elizabeth Warren! The 'unity' candidate who made it clear that she has no shot at winning outright and is only staying in the race to steal the nomination from Bernie with superdelegates at a brokered convention!

PCCC’s Adam Green reveals the reason Warren supporters have been playing up the "she's the first second choice" line for the last month or so—to put her forward as a compromise at a brokered convention in Milwaukee.

Bernie's literally the only candidate in the race calling for this. He doesn't just wanna reform ICE like some of the other candidates, he wants to full on abolish that gestapo. If this doesn't make you want to support him, we just have entirely different moral worldviews

I obtained a copy of the Bloomberg campaign’s strict NDA that it requires staffers to sign. It’s 9 pages long and could prevent employees from reporting workplace abuse:

If your discipline—or at least the work you value within your discipline—tells us nothing useful about reality, and in fact posits an alternative reality, then maybe it’s time to ask some painful questions about that discipline

The other day, I argued with a noted economics writer on here and he advanced the usual arguments about how median “real income” has risen in my lifetime. What he meant was essentially that a drop in the price of TVs was supposed to compensate for healthcare costs skyrocketing

4/ For example, our inflation-adjusted data say car prices have not increased since the mid-1990s. Obviously, that's not remotely true. What economists are saying is that cars have gotten better so the higher sticker price doesn't reflect inflation, it reflects higher quality.

3/ Why do our inflation-adjusted data say otherwise? Because inflation does not assess affordability. You don't have to take my word for it. Here's a neat study by Nobel laureate Robert Shiller making the point, as cited by Fed economist Michael Bryan:

2/ Punchline: Popular perception is correct. In 1985, the typical male worker could cover a family of four's major expenditures (housing, health care, transportation, education) on 30 weeks of salary. By 2018 it took 53 weeks. Which is a problem, there being 52 weeks in a year.

Thread (1/16). How is that our economic statistics suggest workers have been making slow but steady progress in recent decades, while popular perception is that their family finances are coming under increasingly untenable pressure? I've been working on this, here's my answer:

Oh, hi: I’ve been a tenured professor at Harvard Law for 48 years. I’m worth $$millions from my legal work for industries. I went to Harvard undergrad & Harvard Law & clerked for the Supreme Court. I’m 78 & have full security & have my entire adult life. Why are people so angry?

Wow. A new fact sheet shows that there are more people in America serving life sentences today (206,000) than the entire prison population in 1970 (196,000). This is really jarring.
