@mp3michael It obviously hasn’t hurt the CA economy, and its people still prefer to live here rather than elsewhere.The avg net worth of Trump & his cabinet is around $400 million, the avg pay of a journalist in America is $40,000.So who are the elitists?

Retweeted by Tim O'Reilly @mp3michael @stlouisfed Yes, it is federal only. But my guess they show a consistent share of GDP too.Anyone convinced that government has grown much larger should review this chart of government spending as % of GDP doesn't end well.

We have to significantly expand our investment in education. There is no other way: Vocational, k-12, everything.
Retweeted by Tim O'Reilly @reselbob I don't believe automation is the problem. The problem is financialization, which drives how automation is used. @dbreunig I agree.

A few hours ago, a judge in OK ordered the release of thousands of emails on @EPA nominee Scott Pruitt's relationship with Big Oil.
Retweeted by Tim O'ReillyThose emails might show corruption - so of course Republicans are jamming his confirmation through 4 days before the emails become public.
