Show notes - February 9, 2019

Here's a recap of the latest episode:

  • A "Green New Deal" is no winner if it pushes us into the red. "Green New Deal" promises have to be viewed in the same way as promised "multiplier effects" from publicly-funded sports facilities. It's easy to offer rosy payback forecasts -- but when public dollars are at stake, debts are real even when hopes aren't. Decide what you want, limit those wants as much as possible, then pay for it all. ( listen )

  • Is email better for reaching a decision than a sit-down meeting? It is if the other person is going to blow off the meeting -- that's for sure. Email still seems in many ways like the "fast" way to do things -- especially if there's any follow-up required. Unless the other person is guaranteed to have the information you need right now, the beautiful asynchronicity of email seems much more time-efficient than other choices. But maybe that's a Generation X bias talking. ( listen )

  • The week in technology: Microsoft begs you to stop using MSIE and Google cuts the Fiber cable to one test market. ( listen )

  • Celebrating National Pizza Day ( listen )

  • Sen. Elizabeth Warren joins the 2020 race -- here's what's wrong with her take on business. ( listen )

  • Just because you hate a headline doesn't make the editors shameless partisans ( listen )
