These photos by Tyre Nichols truly are masterpieces. Take a moment to see the beauty of this human who was brutally murdered. This has to stop. It is up to all of us to make sure it does. MasterPieces | tnicholsphotography thiscaliforniakid2.wixsite.c…

True commitment to work-life balance is giving people permission to take other priorities as seriously as their jobs. In burnout cultures, people are expected to drop everything for work. In healthy cultures, people are encouraged to protect time for family, health, and leisure.

I don't understand how you can, almost 11 years after Trayvon Martin, still be the sort of person calling for more police-reform efforts like body-cameras. These guys did this to Tyre Nichols with all the cameras rolling.

Kansas Republicans introduced a bill that would make abortion and IVF punishable by 20 years in prison. Lawmakers also struck out language allowing abortion in medical emergencies. jessica.substack.com/p/abort…

"Black Knight estimates that if [home] prices uniformly declined 10-15% nationally, only 2-4% of mortgage borrowers would have negative equity, which is similar to levels seen in the latter half of the last expansion and well below the almost 30% seen in 2011" - GS

Republicans want to create a federal anti-abortion website that not only seeks to deceive women about abortion—but would collect their personal information to give to anti-abortion groups. jessica.substack.com/p/break…

"Inflation, measured by PCE, has dropped below the fed funds rate. The Fed is setting a positive real rate again. There’s room to argue about whether this policy is truly tight, but the days of egregious looseness are over."  --@JohnAuthers, @Opinion bloomberg.com/opinion/articl…

What @alixgouldwerth calls “social infrastructure” is what I’ve often referred to as “human infrastructure”— but we both mean investments in *people* who are the ultimate foundation of the entire economy.
Replying to @alixgouldwerth
The importance of physical infrastructure to economic growth is broadly understood and garners bipartisan support. Social infrastructure also facilitates growth by facilitating labor force participation, increasing human capital, and stabilizing the macroeconomy. 23/

A new @WB_DOL database shows child care prices across the country. What's remarkable is that there's not a single combination of age-center-home care in which the median price is less than the Child Tax Credit ($3000) or the expired expansion ($3600). blog.dol.gov/2023/01/24/new-…

ask yourself: has the strength of this recovery been accurately reflected in the story Americans have heard from politicians and the press about the economy the last two years?
Sometimes you need to look at the big picture: It's been an incredible rebound from the 2020 pandemic recession. The US has recovered all output lost in the crisis and gotten back on trend. GDP 2022: +2.1% 2021: +5.9% 2020: -2.8% washingtonpost.com/business/… via @abhabhattarai

New unemployment insurance claims fell 6K (3%) with seasonal adjustment and 64K (22%) without last week. Such a disjuncture with press releases from big firms that drive headlines. Why? Some announced layoffs happen at delay. Some have new jobs lined up immediately.
