Electing a record number of women to Congress is great — but it’s not the goal | Bloomberg
If every woman in a competitive race going into this year’s midterm elections wins, come January there will be 116 women responsible for crafting our nation’s laws, compared with 107 in the current Congress — a record. Margaret O'Mara, professor of history at the UW, is quoted.

There's No Such Thing as Moderate Marxism - Bloomberg
In addition, the communist utopia can't be approached in moderation. Marxism without revolution isn’t Marxism. Sooner or later, the great day will come. Marx wasn't trying to advocate or justify it particularly; he was merely predicting. But steps to ameliorate the oppression of the working class might delay the inevitable, and that would be counter-revolutionary. Really, the harder life gets for the downtrodden, the better, both for the plausibility of the Marxist worldview and for the prompt arrival of the promised land.

Trust the Facts on GMOs - Bloomberg
Science has affirmed that GM foods — grown from seeds whose genes have been altered to make them resistant to insects or herbicides, for instance — are safe. There’s no need to dress up the labels to suggest that genetic modification makes foods somehow better. That risks misleading the public, just as Greenpeace and other groups have done with their baseless claims that GM crops are dangerous.

If You Really Want to Help the Poor, Shop at Walmart - Bloomberg
Often the data cut both ways. For example, the consumer gain from those low prices is much greater than the cost of the job losses. 4  (The savings to the public are on the order of many billions of dollars a year. 5 ) And a well-known study linking the rise of the Walmart Supercenter (which also sells groceries) to the rise of obesity concedes that consumer savings from the store’s lower prices substantially outweigh increased medical costs. And, speaking of health, we also know that living near a Walmart pharmacy significantly increases the likelihood that someone suffering from high blood pressure will take medication and decreases avoidable hospitalizations by a remarkable 6.2 percent.

Now comes a fresh entry in the what’s-good-about-Walmart sweepstakes: research suggesting that proximity to a Walmart Supercenter reduces food insecurity among children. This is no small thing. According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, in 2016 more than 3 million households contained children who were “food insecure” — young people, says the USDA, who eat meals of relatively poor variety and desirability.

More Money in Politics Is Great - Bloomberg
And when it comes to campaign finance, I’m for floors, not ceilings, as long as there’s meaningful disclosure. I’d love to see public financing that would give candidates even in seemingly hopeless districts the chance to run a real campaign. I’d have no problem with allowing unlimited donations on top of that. It’s true that the political-science literature stresses that most campaign spending is subject to diminishing returns. And money’s importance is limited by other (largely unrestricted) campaign resources, such as volunteer hours and expertise.

But in large part I agree with the Supreme Court doctrine that campaign spending is a form of speech, and therefore shouldn’t be limited under the First Amendment. And because self-government is important to us, I think it’s fine to spend a lot of money on it.

Brazil’s Bolsonaro Completes a U.S. Sweep of South America - Bloomberg
Bolsonaro’s election also further solidifies the turn to the right throughout the region. With the exception of Mexico, which often moves orthogonally to its neighbors, most nations are moving to the right. Argentina, Chile, Colombia and Peru — the strongest economies in South America — have all elected conservative presidents in the last three years. Even Bolivia and Ecuador have shifted somewhat to the right. While Cuba and Venezuela have remained in the leftist camp (so long as Nicolas Maduro can cling to power in Venezuela), the Brazil election alone moves 200 million of the 500 million in Latin America into the rightist camp. It’s a huge move — and one that will be looked on very favorably by the Donald Trump administration. Trump will find a close ally and indeed an acolyte in Bolsonaro, and currently strained relations between the nations will warm considerably.

China Is the Climate-Change Battleground - Bloomberg
This leads to a painful but inescapable truth -- no matter how much they spend, no matter how dramatically they change their societies, the U.S. and Europe won’t be able to put much of a dent in global warming on their own. Yes, the U.S. should ban coal power, tax carbon heavily and spend lots of money on building green energy infrastructure. But without a huge change in China, none of that will matter -- the battle against climate change will be lost.

Trump’s Latest Plan to Slash Drug Prices Has Real Teeth - Bloomberg
It would be an unprecedented use of government muscle to bring drug costs down in Part B, where pharmaceutical companies currently have nearly unfettered pricing power. It remains to be seen if it can distract from the GOP’s other health-care woes as U.S. midterm elections approach. But in contrast with other recent drug-pricing efforts, this one has pharma investors scared, and for good reason.
