Starving the Watchdog - Hidden Brain - NPR - Dec. 2018

"... There are plenty of ways today to pay little—or nothing—to read the news. There are free blogs. There's Facebook and Twitter. Who needs a subscription to a local newspaper?

Millions of Americans have decided they don't. But new research suggests this strategy may have costs in the long run. That's because newspapers are not like most things we buy. If you decide not to buy a watch or a cappuccino, you save money. But if you decide not to pay for a police department, you might save money in the short run, but end up paying more in the long run.
Whereas most of us treat newspapers like consumer products, new research from Paul GaoChang Lee, and Dermot Murphy suggests that they might be more like police departments. Gao, Lee, and Murphy looked at how newspaper closures might affect the cost of borrowing in local governments. What they found is a price tag that may give many taxpayers sticker shock.
... Hidden Brain, we look at an unusual case of a free-rider problem. And we ask, who bears the cost when nobody wants to pay?"

Trash, Trump and Orangutans

Orangutans are currently only found in the rainforests of Borneo and Sumatra.  They are about to become extinct.  Wikipedia

Nearly every day I walk a particular way to a coffee shop and get a little exercise.  Sometimes I change the path - a side errand, avoid the prevailing wind or simply to engage in a little variety.

One day I noticed there was a little more trash than usual on the sidewalk but mostly in the gutter.  As I continued along I thought about where the trash came from?  The city I live in, Madison WI, has a vibrant social infrastructure full of weekend events and other times as well - farmer's market, art fair, marathons, music and food celebrations and many activist events, etc.

The City, implicitly my neighbors, does a good job accommodating these events and cleaning up. Usually - this was an exception, a small one I hoped would be remedied.   Ironically this might be an occasion for "the politics of resentment".

The next day, as I took the same journey, the trash was still there - blown around and in slightly different positions.  Hmmmm!

Earlier that morning as I listened to a podcast, read an article - I was reminded of a theme I have heard often - "We make bad decisions because we are so focused on the near term and discount the future, costs and uncertainty, i.e., the future can't be known or you can't control it."

We think, when we see the trash, it will be taken care of, that it burdens us with no cost, since we are almost past it, a second time.

I looked around and tried to remember which corners also had containers for passerby's trash.  I stooped and picked up some garbage.  If I left it there I was being burdened with it's unsightly presence, everyday, as were my neighbors.

We make poor choices everyday thinking we can't affect the future and because some tell us we can't affect the future.  In a small but significant way, I can make my daily walk a lot more pleasant.

There are things we collectively care about but facts are not going to stir us to act.  We need to recognize our own nature, that we discount the future, discount the costs, rationalize uncertainty as an excuse and thus make really bad decisions.

I wonder why the orangutans of Borneo do not organize and stop the special-interests from clear-cutting their rainforests.

Foxconn, UW-Madison Leaders to Make Announcement

Leaders of Foxconn Technology Group and the University of Wisconsin-Madison are planning to make what they call a "major announcement" on campus Monday. U.S. News and World Report  Aug. 27, 2018, at 9:21 a.m.

Wonder what it is?

  • Wisconsin taxpayers cough up between $3 billion and $4 billion ?
  • Wisconsin localities use eminent domain to take people's property and make way for FOXCONN ?
  • Maybe FOXCONN gets all the water it wants from Lake Michigan ?
  • FOXCONN gets exempted from all state environmental rules and regulations ?
  • Wisconsin Transportation Funds are diverted from statewide infrastructure to support FOXCONN needs ?
  • Wisconsin gets 13,000 jobs -- maybe in five years ? What kind of jobs ?
  • Walker gets political cover for keeping Wisconsin at the end of the line when it comes to recovery -- compare to Minnesota or Illinois ?
Nope -- those deals or promises have already been done!  Be interesting to see what really happens!

Oh! UW gets $100 million, maybe ?

Foxconn CEO Terry Gou, left, and UW-Madison Chancellor Rebecca Blank after signing a Declaration of Collaboration agreement Monday Aug. 27, 2018 at the Wisconsin Institute for Discovery on the UW-Madison campus.

Who is Senator Tammy Baldwin running against ... big bucks!

Big question for Wisconsin U.S. Senate race focuses on mega-donor Dick Uihlein

A week after accusing a billionaire donor of attempting to buy a Wisconsin U.S. Senate seat, Republican nominee Leah Vukmir is now hoping to persuade the same Illinois businessman to open his wallet for her campaign against Democratic Sen. Tammy Baldwin.
Vukmir’s change of heart comes after she won Tuesday’s divisive and expensive Republican primary over Kevin Nicholson, the preferred candidate of mega-donor Dick Uihlein. He spent nearly $11 million on the race for Nicholson and now, as Republicans try to unite behind Vukmir, the big question is whether Uihlein will get involved in the effort to defeat Baldwin, of Madison.

Trump admin's 'tent cities' cost more than keeping migrant kids with parents - NBC

WASHINGTON — The cost of holding migrant children who have been separated from their parents in newly created "tent cities" is $775 per person per night, according to an official at the Department of Health and Human Services — far higher than the cost of keeping children with their parents in detention centers or holding them in more permanent buildings.

In 2010, the first genome-wide data from ancient humans was published. Since that time, the number of ancient genomes available has increased by three orders of magnitude, and the amount of data continues to rise at an extraordinary rate. These new data make it possible, for the first time, to understand how ancient human populations are related to each other. Studies have demonstrated surprise after surprise, including the existence of a previously unknown human population called the Denisovans and interbreeding between Neanderthals and modern humans.
In this 2017 Midsummer Nights' Science talk, David Reich described his laboratory’s work in the area of ancient DNA and the prospects for further discoveries about the past from this burgeoning field.


Consider as well the quotation from foremost primatologist - 

“The view of morality as a set of immutable principles, or laws, that are ours to discover ultimately comes from religion. It doesn't really matter whether it is God, human reason, or science that formulates these laws. All of these approaches share a top-down orientation, their chief premise being that humans don't know how to behave and that someone must tell them. But what if morality is created in day-to-day social interaction, not at some abstract mental level? What if it is grounded in the emotions, which most of the time escape the neat categorizations that science is fond of? Since the whole point of my book is to argue a bottom-up approach, I will obviously return to this issue. My views are in line with the way we know the human mind works, with visceral reactions arriving before rationalizations, and also with the way evolution produces behavior. A good place to start is with an acknowledgment of our background as social animals, and how this background predisposes us to treat each other. This approach deserves attention at a time in which even avowed atheists are unable to wean themselves from a semireligious morality, thinking that the world would be a better place if only a white-coated priesthood could take over from the frocked one.”

Why we make BAD decisions !

Those of you who don't take the time to listen to this will definitely continue to make bad decisions ... most likely so will the rest of us (maybe a small chance we can live more in the future and less in the now). Listen, read, reflect. Good Luck !

Hidden Brain

It turns out that, in fact, the world was given this gift in 1738 by a Dutch polymath named Daniel Bernoulli. And what I want to talk to you about today is what that gift is, and I also want to explain to you why it is that it hasn't made a damn bit of difference.

Bad Decisions

Ah, for you in persuading them. Well, it's notoriously difficult to get people to be farsighted.  But one thing that psychologists have tried that seems to work is to get people to imagine the future more vividly. One of the problems with making decisions about the far future and the near future is that we imagine the near future much more vividly than the far future. To the extent that you can equalize the amount of detail that people put into the mental representations of near and far future, people begin to make decisions about the two in the same way. So, would you like to have an extra 100,000 dollars when you're 65 is a question that's very different than, imagine who you'll be when you're 65: will you be living, what will you look like, how much hair will you have, who will you be living with. Once we have all the details of that imaginary scenario, suddenly we feel like it might be important to save so that that guy has a little retirement money. But these are tricks around the margins. I think in general you're battling a very fundamental human tendency, which is to say, "I'm here today, and so now is more important than later."

Outsider Gropers and Grifters try to grab Tammy Baldwin's Senate seat

ELECTION 2018 'Unprecedented' outside spending hits Tammy Baldwin, boosts Kevin Nicholson in US Senate race Wisconsin State Journal

Seven months before Election Day, outside groups have given Wisconsin’s U.S. Senate race an early barrage of big money unlike any other in the nation — and likely, any other in history.
That torrent of political ads has put Democratic U.S. Sen. Tammy Baldwin on the defensive. And the backing of one wealthy donor, Illinois businessman Richard Uihlein, has boosted Kevin Nicholson in his primary bid against fellow Republican state Sen. Leah Vukmir.
More than $9 million has been spent in the race by outside groups, more than twice as much as any other U.S. Senate race, according to one measure by the nonpartisan Center for Responsive Politics.
Outside spending in Wisconsin likely is “unprecedented” for a U.S. Senate campaign, excluding special elections, at this stage, according to Andrew Mayersohn, a researcher for the center.
A broader view of outside spending in the race, based on data provided by Democratic and Republican sources in Wisconsin, puts the total amount spent at more than $13 million. That includes some spending on ads that name, but don’t explicitly support or oppose, a candidate — meaning they aren’t disclosed to the Federal Election Commission. The center uses FEC records in making its calculations.
Much of the spending in Wisconsin has flooded TV and radio airwaves with ads bashing Baldwin, praising Nicholson, or both. Some of the ads have been pro-Baldwin, and a few have touted Vukmir.
That has given Nicholson a lopsided edge on the airwaves in his primary battle with Vukmir. Outside groups have spent nearly $5 million to support Nicholson so far, compared to nearly $262,000 for Vukmir, according to the Center for Responsive Politics data.
Meanwhile, Baldwin, D-Madison, has faced a negative ad blitz that so far dwarfs any other U.S. Senate incumbent seeking re-election this fall. Outside groups have spent more than four times as much on negative ads against her than against any other senator, the Center for Responsive Politics data show.
“Tammy Baldwin is putting Wisconsin first, so it’s no surprise big money special interests and billionaire mega-donors are spending millions to attack her,” Baldwin spokesman Bill Neidhardt said in a statement. “But no matter how much these out-of-state right-wing groups dump into our state, Wisconsinites know Tammy listens to them.” ...

#WMC #WMC-IMC -> Wisconsin Manufacturers and Commerce -> Incognito

What are their real interests?  Who do they lobby for?  Evidently "Willie Horton" ads are their specialty and style.

Willie Horton Revisited

illie Horton. The name is enough to make a politician blanch. Ever since 1988, when the George H. W. Bush presidential campaign machine wielded the Horton horror story against his Democratic rival, the threat of being “Willie Horton’ed” has shaped the politics of crime and punishment. “The ghost of Willie Horton has loomed over any conversation about sentencing reform for over 30 years,” says Sen. Richard J. Durbin, D-Ill., co-sponsor of one such proposal.

Jim Pugh, Vice President & Treasurer of WMC IMC

Jim Pugh is an award-winning public affairs professional and innovator in corporate public policy issue advocacy at Wisconsin Manufacturers & Commerce – Wisconsin’s chamber of commerce. Pugh serves as the vice president and treasurer of WMC Issues Mobilization Council, Inc., (WMC IMC), the issue advocacy arm of the Wisconsin chamber.
Pugh served on Governor Scott Walker’s transition team in 2010 and provided public policy guidance and communications support for public employee union reforms.
He has played a leading role at WMC using issue advocacy to drive Wisconsin’s business agenda with the public. He managed issue advocacy campaigns that help Wisconsin’s chamber lobbyists deliver tax cuts, regulation relief, lawsuit reform, Right to Work, public employee union reforms and other wins to improve the state’s business climate. He has managed more than $30 million in issue advocacy from 2006 to 2014 to educate the public about elected officials and candidates for public office.

Why you don't want a packed court ... so much for non-partisan.

Walker will ask state Supreme Court to overturn appeals court's denial of delay for special elections

The seats were vacated in late December when Walker appointed Sen. Frank Lasee, R-De Pere, and Rep. Keith Ripp, R-Lodi, to administrative positions.  [In the Walker Administration.  The GOP lost another special election in a supposedly safe seat.]
3/28/2018 ... Now the elections will be held and the State Senate drops it plans to prevent voters from having representation.  Afraid to call attention to the sham of electing GOP Grifters to the State Supreme Court.

#Tillerson #Trump #NewsCycle Management #Pennsylvania Conor #Lamb

Pick a day, any day.  Trump and friends must be very uncomfortable about Conor Lamb winning in Pennsylvania.

Why else would you step all over a news event where a Republican wins the special election.

Firing Tillerson is a perfect news cycle distraction, perhaps inevitable but why today except to bury other bad news for the Trump Administration.

It also distracts Trumps backtracking on "guns" ... NRA wins again.

What do Trump and Tillerson have in common.  They won't talk!  One about Stormy Daniels and the other about whether he call Trump a Moron.

#Tillerson #Trump #NewsCycle Management #Pennsylvania Conor #Lamb ... does this suggest Lamb, even losing, is such bad news that Trump wants it buried in the coffin with Tillerson and talk of reasonable guncontrols ?

GOP Tax Giveaway to High Income -- How much has your take home changed -- same, smaller, ?

How Tax Cuts Could Decide the Midterms ... The Atlantic
...Yet evidence is growing that companies are devoting far less money to workers than to stock buybacks that benefit their shareholders, at a time when the top 10 percent of families own more than four-fifths of all stocks. While media tallies show companies have issued about $6 billion in bonuses, they have already announced $171 billion in stock buybacks in 2018, a record high and over double the level at this point last year. Spending on buybacks almost certainly will remain elevated, because executives feel a kind of arms-race pressure to lift their own stock prices while other companies are doing the same. “Once some companies start doing it, people say, ‘We’ve got to keep up,’” said William Lazonick, an economist at the University of Massachusetts, Lowell, who has studied buybacks.

Michael Screnock ... Walker Crony appointee, WMC secret favorite ... WI Supreme Court bias

Right Wing Hits Panic Button as Their Spending on Michael Screnock Skyrockets: Republican Party of Wisconsin and Right-Wing Cabal at Nearly $670,000 in Spending With a Week to Go Before Primary Election 20180213

MADISON, Wis. — State Republicans and their allies have pushed the panic button on the race for the state Supreme Court, already forking out nearly $670,000 for the benefit of the campaign of Michael Screnock before the February 20 primary election. Spending by right-wing special interests like the Wisconsin Manufacturers & Commerce and the Republican Party of Wisconsin to elect high court judges is not new. But, One Wisconsin Now Research Director Joanna Beilman-Dulin noted, with such massive outlays already occurring, Screnock could be on the receiving end of record amounts of spending to try to boost his electoral prospects if he advances to the general election.
“The right-wing cabal in Wisconsin has always opened their checkbooks to pack the state high court with their favored judges,” commented Beilman-Dulin. “But with a nearly $670,000 down payment on Michael Screnock with a week still to go before the primary election, they seem poised to set records on this race.” ...

Don't Go Down This Road: #Tolls ... #Vos and #Fitzgerald - Discriminates - More Bureaucracy - Poor Planning

Moving people from point A to point B can be done in so many ways - bike, walking, train, bus, or other mass transit, even closein neighborhood (re)development.  WI GOP seems to favor policy that covers up "public costs" and obscures benefits and allows them to hide implied "taxation".

If you can afford it you can drive on it; if you can afford a car.  This reinforces inequality.  It most likely harms the environment further; in short and long term ways.

Which private interests benefit (the developers, the landowners, the operating authority) and when - what is the timeframe.

Basically the GOP wants to create and lock in yet another bureaucracy far removed from public scrutiny.

Fitzgerald Pushes For Toll Roads In Wisconsin Senate Majority Leader: Open Road Tolling Is Only Way State Will Qualify For Influx Of Federal Funds Wednesday, February 7, 2018, 10:50am By Shawn Johnson

... While the next state budget debate is still more than a year off, the issue of transportation funding received renewed focus after President Donald Trump called for a new federal infrastructure plan.
Trump's plan would offer states a chance at increased federal funding for infrastructure projects as long as states put up most of the funding themselves. 
That could be difficult in Wisconsin, where the state has delayed major road projects because of a lack of revenue and Republicans who run state government have been unable to reach an agreement to raise the gas tax or vehicle registration fees. 
When Gov. Scott Walker was asked about Trump's plan last week, he said he'd be open to raising the gas tax as long as the state cut taxes by the same amount somewhere else. 
Fitzgerald said he wasn't sure that could ever pass the Senate, and even if it did, he said it wouldn't be enough to tap into federal funds to pay for a backlog of road projects that he estimated at $6 billion. ...

Trump wants a crisis. Will it lead to violence?

The question is how will Trump use it ... or rather abuse it.

For example, DACA was humane, so like the sleeping dog, he kicked it to create a crisis and he thinks to create a hollow political advantage.

Will this, lately, "Wall Street" 1175 decline be an excuse.  I read that the TREASURY borrowed $500 Million last year.  Their new projection is the "Trump tax cuts" are going to cause Treasury to borrow $1 Trillion this year -- reduced tax receipts.  This may be the real crisis ... how will Trump abuse it?
