Please Donate Towards A Macro Econ Textbook

to be sent to 1600 Penn Ave… God help us…

I dunno, on it’s face it’s a valid question what people want.

Strong dollar = more imports, fewer exports. Everything at Walmart is cheaper, not good for American manufacturing. Gas cheaper

Weak dollar = foreign goods cost more, everything at Walmart more expensive but good for companies who export globally. Gas expensive

I think people can argue about which is preferable

If you didn’t believe in God, not it’s the time.

But, I don’t know if that God allows a 3 times married man, a 2 times wife cheater, and a one time rapist man, a man grabbing kitty cats from women to get into his kingdom. :scream:

Shouldn’t our president at least be smart enough to call an economist to ask this question instead of his national security advisor?


Isn’t this a joke from somewhere?

We are now in joking journalism officially. If you are serious, you call it fake news. If you are not so serious, a good laugh.

3am call about a burning question on strong or weak dollar policy to a person who knows much less than himself. What’s the IQ level of our lovely journalist, or the ethics.

A White House leak? Give me a break.

Shall we fire the journalist or laugh it off? I am speechless

A supposed white house leak. It could be fake news. Beyond frightening if it’s true. I believe in cases like this the journalist must confirm the source has access to the white house. No way to know for sure if they are full of shit though.

This is the source. If the HuffPost is creating the fake news, SF chronicle journalist must has an IQ of -1 or thinks copying fake news a good practice

“The Huffington Post was launched on May 9, 2005 as an overtly liberal/left commentary outlet and alternative to news aggregators such as the Drudge Report,[6][7][8] and some still consider it to espouse liberal views.[9][10][11] On February 7, 2011, AOL acquired the mass market[12] Huffington Post for US$315 million, making Arianna Huffington editor-in-chief of The Huffington Post Media Group.[13][14]”

He is scared sh** on the complex decisions that he has to make & doesn’t know how to go about figuring out stuff. Hence, he is calling his buddies for comfort… i.e. “Everything’s gonna be all right” kinda buddy who makes the stress go away & one feels better.

Well, now you know the real face of the media. Glad that I cancelled SF Chronicle years ago. I can’t believe that SF Chronicle uses a joke from a blog for news reporting. Grossly incompetent and mislead many readers.

Hmm, was this piece of fake news manufactured in Russia?

Let’s see whether this “news” will get into New York Times and Washington Post. I wish Chronicle won’t need to feel ashamed if other papers publish the same “news”

This guy is such a thin skin that anything he reads or watches on TV, which he does, he tells everybody, insults him or annoys him big time. I hope he doesn’t die one of these days of a heart attack.

Darn wishful thinking…

He wastes so much more time defending anything “size” wise, than worrying about what to say, how to say it, and when to say it. He even missed a security briefingbecause it was more important to berate Nordstrom.

It is a disgrace to this country. He really is, to the point he is attacking Nordstrom for dumping Ivanka’s crappy merchandise. And his supporters say there’s no conflict of interest there. Even the Pentagon is asking to rent rooms at his tower in NY. Of course, that money won’t go to Trump’s pocket, not at all, he is such a magnanimous guy that he won’t charge them a dime.

Where is the Emoluments clause when we need it? That’s right! The republicans hold the congress, no investigation into their own corruption.

We are doing good America, very good. Bigly!

Obama was MIA when Louisiana had record flooding. Hillary was MIA too. Trump was the one there handing out supplies. Our government was busy “helping” by preventing provste citizens from using their own boats to rescue people. Then the government decided to charge them a registration fee. Of you’re relying on the government to help you, you can plan on waiting a long time and when they are done the situation will be worse.

His dad made the money, Donald just inherited it. To play armchair psychiatrist for a minute, Donald’s insecurity must have a lot to do with his relationship with daddy. Daddy must have been real harsh on lil’ Donald…

You know who’s qualified to answer that 3am phone call? Hillary. :smile:

Sorry for the absence. On my way home to the US last weekend, I was detained by Homeland Security and held with others who were stranded under the Muslim ban. CBP officers seized my phone and wouldn’t release me until I gave my access PIN for them to copy the data. I initially refused, since it’s a JPL-issued phone (Jet Propulsion Lab property) and I must protect access. Just to be clear - I’m a US-born citizen and NASA engineer, traveling with a valid US passport. Once they took both my phone and the access PIN, they returned me to the holding area with the cots and other sleeping detainees until they finished copying my data.

I’m back home, and JPL has been running forensics on the phone to determine what CBP/Homeland Security might have taken, or whether they installed anything on the device. I’ve also been working with JPL legal counsel. I removed my Facebook page until I was sure this account wasn’t also compromised by the intrusion into my phone and connected apps. I hope no one was worried. JPL issued me a new phone and new phone number, which I’ll give out soon.
