Why Andrew Yang's Universal Basic Income Proposal Has Been Gaining Ground

Why Andrew Yang's Universal Basic Income Proposal Has Been Gaining Ground

Earlier this month, Andrew Yang officially qualified for the upcoming Democratic presidential debate, making him the only candidate so far on stage without a background in politics. Yang is a former tech executive and founder of Venture for America, a sort of Teach for America that sends recent graduates to work for start-ups in "struggling cities," as puts it, such as Detroit, Cleveland, and New Orleans. That probably best sums up Yang's very Silicon Valley approach to governing: Structural problems can be innovated away with entrepreneurial gumption. The central plank of his campaign is...

Trump Melts Down as the Coronavirus Sends the Stock Market Plunging

Trump Melts Down as the Coronavirus Sends the Stock Market Plunging

On Monday morning, the stock market plunged dramatically, presaging potentially the biggest economic shock since the financial crisis of 2008. As soon as markets opened in the U.S., the S&P 500 dropped 7 percent. The drop was so extreme that it triggered a safety mechanism, halting all trading for 15 minutes. Once trading resumed, the market recovered, slightly, but was still down by 6 percent. Trading will automatically pause again if the drop reaches 13 percent, and then again at 20.The immediate cause was the start of a between Saudi Arabia and Russia, with each country trying to...

A Deadly Day of Chaos at the Top of Mount Everest

A Deadly Day of Chaos at the Top of Mount Everest

It was morning and bright, and Reinhard Grubhofer, depleted and dehydrated, hoisted his body over a crest and rose uneasily. There, from the summit of Mount Everest, he could see everything.

But closer at hand, he could see trouble taking shape.He could feel it, too, shuffling with a dozen other climbers onto a slim patch of ground roughly the size of two Ping-Pong tables. The space was crowded. Shakily, Grubhofer held up a small flag and posed for...

Angry About Warren’s Exit? Use That Energy to Take Back the Senate

Angry About Warren’s Exit? Use That Energy to Take Back the Senate

’s exit reaffirmed that everyone loves a powerful woman as soon as she stops trying to take power away from men. It’s science: A 2010 Harvard study that “when female politicians are perceived to be power-seeking, voters react negatively with feelings of moral outrage.” There’s no way to run for president of the United States without being perceived as power-seeking, and the outrage directed at Warren tracked perfectly with the study’s findings, as she was of offenses like being “too ambitious, too needy, too much.”Intentionally or not, Warren’s Democratic rivals channeled this sexist...

Trump Voters Wanted to Blow up the System. Well, Here We Go.

Trump Voters Wanted to Blow up the System. Well, Here We Go.

None of this is surprising, just as there was nothing even remotely unexpected about President Trump’s on Wednesday night. The goal was to reassure a nation staring down and awash in conflicting information, and Trump, true to type, did nothing of the kind. Dryly plowing through some words that his son-in-law and Stephen Miller reportedly into a teleprompter for him, Trump still managed to get key facts wrong about his own government’s response, thereby sowing the very panic and lack of clarity the address was meant to allay. Late into the night on Wednesday, the Department of Homeland...

Eighteen months ago, with Robert Mueller’s investigation into the 2016 election in full swing, Donald Trump former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani to serve as his personal attorney.
