This week, some follow-up on Medicare, Romney and Obama versions of populism, and climate change. Regarding Medicare:
- The Politics of Medicare Made Simple.
- Romney and Obama have the same basic approach to Medicare,
- No they don’t.
- Dueling versions of populism lie at the heart of the Obama versus Romney campaign messages.
- Five Myths About the Middle Class. Not all of these support liberal shibboleths.
- Why we’re in the economic mess we’re in and how to fix it. (This NYRB article probably will go behind a pay wall soon.)
- Our Summer of Climate Change Truth.
