Re: Booze and Money (Tim Fernholz & Megan McArdle)

Re: Booze and Money (Tim Fernholz & Megan McArdle)

I agree. I don't know what caused you to think otherwise.


I don't know why you keep missing the other parts to my argument. We are agreed that we have a demand problem. I only purport to...

Re: Booze and Money (Tim Fernholz & Megan McArdle)

Okay, when I said CPI is an illusion, I did not mean to suggest that it is completely irrelevant. CPI is an inadequate measure, not an irrelevant one. That's why I said that updates to CPI have...

Re: Booze and Money (Tim Fernholz & Megan McArdle)

Money is only as good as what it buys. Relative to gold/platinum, the dollar has been losing value. It appears the FED has been keeping us in line with CPI, but everything might have gotten cheaper...

Re: Booze and Money (Tim Fernholz & Megan McArdle)

An updated CPI has been suggested, but is not used. I don't know why that would make the point moot. I think that's fairly critical when saying something like inflation hasn't moved for 30 years. ...

Re: Booze and Money (Tim Fernholz & Megan McArdle)

Megan is pretty good about guarding against biases, though you may be right. No person is free from bias.


Yes, when measured against CPI. When have CPI metrics been updated? Do you think it...

Re: martyrs, martyrs, ... MARTYRS!!

The Wire didn't get good until the 3rd season. Even so, I didn't really start appreciating how good it was until the 4th and took me until the 5th to consider it in my all time favorite series.

Re: Booze and Money (Tim Fernholz & Megan McArdle)

Yeah, that's more in line with what I remember. Tim's criticism is legitimate. However, I'm guessing that conservatives are willing to tolerate a little more injustice if it means swifter...

Re: Booze and Money (Tim Fernholz & Megan McArdle)

Did he really say that? Yeah, that's just... off. Just in terms of money it costs a huge amount in due process to execute a person.

Re: Booze and Money (Tim Fernholz & Megan McArdle)

This is a good point as far as the Fisher / Rogoff treatment. However, accusing Megan of poor journalism for dismissing hyperinflation is actually weird when you step back from the plain logic of...

Re: Booze and Money (Tim Fernholz & Megan McArdle)
