Conference went well, will have updates as soon as all the final materials are online. But it did mean unplugging from the internet for a while (it feels like an eternity).
Some updates you probably have already seen today: when Austan Goolsbee was appointed to the CEA Chair I wondered if his academic work on the lack of work disincentive for taxes on the rich would lead him to take a more active role in the tax cut debate. And sure enough, here he is with a new “White Board” feature from the White House.
I hope they do more like this. I’m always impressed when Goolsbee explains things; they should get him in front of even more people. It’s really terrible that the Democrats couldn’t use this huge advantage where the correct policy matches the popular opinion to their benefit.
