NYTimes: Paul Krugman, Nobel Laureate in Economic Science 2008 - Ideas for Obama -
"Economic forecasting is an inexact science,to say the least, and things could turn out better or worse than the report predicts." This reminds me of the wisdom of Professor John K.Galbraith:"There are those who don't know and those who don't know they don't know." Krugman advocates for government investment as I advocate the investment in the public education to train human resources.Cf. prior blogs.
Washington Times: Page A1 Obama climate czar has socialist ties: Socialist International, a group for social democratic parties such as British Labor Party. Mrs. Browner represented the US for a speech entitled :How do we strengthen the multi-lateral architecture for a sustainable climate" including Russian and Chinese participants.
When Obama won the election,a statement from Socialist International was issued: "The sky may seem a bit brighter today" My thought: The sky is to be under global governance in climate. Any comments?
On the same Page A18,a photo of President Bush and Mrs.Bush leave St.John's Episcopal Church on Sunday,Jan.11,2009. That reminds me of St.John's University in Shanghai, China as a student from 1943- 1946.
