“We’re going to punish our enemies and we’re gonna reward our friends”The upcoming transvaluation of values will do much to ventilate stale thinking. We will see Paul Krugman in the New York Times denouncing Trump’s deficit spending as an inflationary stimulus based on the discredited ideas of the false prophet Keynes.
Meanwhile, speaking of the New Freshwater Economics, I’m mapping out the Trump-Bannon Upper Midwest High Speed Rail line from Pittsburgh to Milwaukee, with a possible extension to Minneapolis in case Minnesota sees the light in 2020. (Sure, I’ve made fun in the past of Jerry Brown’s hopes to emulate his dad by building high speed rail in California, but it’s a lot easier to build high speed rail lines in the flat Midwest than in mountainous California. And, anyway, it’s a New Era.)
How does a hovercraft ferry from Muskegon, MI to Milwaukee, WI, completely bypassing blue Illinois, sound?
I thought so.
Or how about a tunnel under Lake Michigan from Michigan to Wisconsin that the Trump-Bannon Swing State Express can roar through at 220 mph (assuming Illinois doesn’t yield to reason in 2020)?
That’s a done deal.
