This is an interesting read.
For 200 years, there have been two broad approaches to understanding what determines the distribution of income – and how the economy functions. It is important to understand both schools of thought, because rising inequality is forcing us to leave one and enter the other.

Money needs to get spent. It seems to me that the people who have it now aren't spending it, so somebody needs to squeeze the ketchup out of the packet before somebody steps on it and it splatters all over.
With swollen balance sheets and near-zero (if not negative) interest rates, central banks seem to have run out of ammunition. But policymakers have one more option: a shift to “purer” fiscal policy, in which they directly finance government spending by printing money.

This seems like a great business solution, particularly when combined with a virtual desktop infrastructure. Its quite surprising, to me, that HP created it. HP doesn't have much of a track record with mobile.
The HP Elite x3 gets its name because it is one device that is three things at the same time: phone, laptop, and desktop. How is that accomplished? Through a combination of Windows 10 Mobile, Continuum, HP virtualization software and these two jaw-dropping accessories. Here is what you need to know about the HP Desk Dock and HP Mobile Extender for the Elite x3.

This needs to get as much press as the bullshit allegations did.
The Texas grand jury was investigating whether Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast had been illegally profiting from fetal tissue, but found no wrongdoing on the part of the abortion provider.

This seems like a pretty good deal, although I've had mixed results with refurbished Dell gear.
My name is Del and I'm typing this on my Dell. Do I get an award? Eh. Never mind.

If I lived in a city, I'd have to take a serious look at this.
The Copenhagen Wheel transforms your bicycle into a smart electric hybrid, quickly and easily. The Wheel learns how you pedal and integrates seamlessly with your motion, multiplying your pedal power by 3x–10x. It makes hills feel flat and distances shrink, so you can cycle just about anywhere.

This seems like a valid assessment to me. Reaganomics doesn't seem to actually work...
It is almost impossible to assess the progress of the United States economy over the past four decades without feeling disappointed. Poor US economic performance is not the result of any particular ideology, but of allowing ideologues to guide public policy.

The whole "renting the cable box" thing has always annoyed me, but I never knew it was about $20 billion a year. Holy crap!
Cable box rental fee revenue at stake in battle over new rules.

This is an interesting read, i think, about Islam updating itself.
The clash between secular human-rights standards and Muslim religious doctrine mirrors the broader conflict between Islam and modernity. Fortunately, an emerging school of Muslim thought addresses the question in a new way, emphasizing that the Quran, like any religious text, must be reinterpreted over time.

Um, why does a budget bill need anything about oil exports? I don't see how those two things are related. This is the kind of stupid shit that makes Americans hate our own government.
The House will pass a short-term bill to prevent the government from shutting down this weekend, Speaker Paul Ryan said Tuesday. The announcement from the Wisconsin Republican came as talks on a sweeping ...
