I’m pleased to announce that I’m scheduled to appear today on Thom Hartmann’s nationally syndicated radio show today at 1:20 PM EST. The subject: the state of the U.S. and world economies — and specifically, is either one as healthy as the conventional wisdom seems to believe? All the info you need to listen live is at this link. As usual, I’ll post a podcast of the interview as soon as one’s available.
In addition, on September 26, the Hong Kong-based ChinaUSFocus.com posted a column by the Cato Institute’s Ted Galen Carpenter quoting my views on President Trump’s North Korea policies. Truth in advertising: Ted is a long-time and very close friend. He’s also one of the sharpest foreign policy analysts I know. In addition, this website’s sponsor calls itself a non-profit organization, but given that Hong Kong is under China’s thumb in most important ways, this claim should be viewed extremely skeptically. Moreover, this “non-profit” admits that it gets “support” from a prominent Shanghai-based think tank that (like other Chinese think tanks) is an arm of the Chinese government.
In this vein, however, it’s intriguing that the point made by me and by Ted (who agrees) is manifestly not one that toes the Beijing line on the crisis.
On September 10, a blog post from the Center for Immigration Studies spotlighted my findings on the economics of repeal of the former Obama administration’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.
And on September 9, my post on the subject was reprinted on the popular ZeroHedge.com economics and finance website.
Finally, as previously discussed, in a September 15 New Republic article, prominent journalist and author John B. Judis quoted my views on the worsening corruption of many already corrupt, corporate-funded American think tanks. Unfortunately, as I also specified, I don’t believe that John’s treatment of this point met basic standards of fairness.
