Trump’s Muse on U.S. Trade with China | The New Yorker
Economics has been a crutch for some Republicans who want to convince themselves that, of two hated candidates, Donald Trump is the one who shares most of their values. He doesn’t like taxes—boy, does he not like taxes—and he doesn’t like regulation, so we’ll let his hatred of trade slide. via Pocket

Bad Blood: Secrets and Lies in a Silicon Valley Startup, by John Carreyrou (@Kindle)
Finished 2018-06-10. Recommended. A brisk read, funny and maddening.

A consistent theme here is very successful old men deciding to rely too much on social proof and gut instinct over due diligence, physical evidence, and the advice of more conscientious but lower status people around them.

Also, to be frank, Stanford doesn't come off looking too great, particularly the Hoover Institution, although I guess anyone with a clue already knew that Hoover is a pernicious parasite.
