Two additions to Angry Bear roster
New Deal democrat has joined the roster at Angry Bear and will be cross posting from the respected Bonddad blog as well as publishing original posts at AB. “New Deal democrat is the norm de blog of a professional who, once upon a time long long ago wanted to make use of his undergraduate degree in psychology in Public Policy Analysis. While taking graduate macroeconomics at the Wharton School, he was told that empirical results from psychology were irrelevant because deductive economic theory showed that “they all randomize[d] out.” He promptly undertook another career. But he remained a math nerd with an interest in economics and politics. He began blogging over 10 years ago. He focuses on business cycle indicators, with a particular emphasis on jobs and wages.”
Sandwichman has joined the roster at Angry Bear and will be cross posting from the respected blog Econospeak as well as publishing original posts at AB. Sandwichman “teaches collective bargaining and labor/environmental issues at Simon Fraser University, near Vancouver, Canada. His research investigates how archaic vindication-fables steer mainstream economic discourse away from critical insights.“
I would like to welcome Sandwichman to AB from the perspective of one union man to another we would call you a “brother”. I come from the school of hard knocks and was a work horse for many years.(Remember back then there were work horses, mules, dogs, rats, cows and slugs. Ford liked ‘m strong as an ox and dumb as a mule) We fought for many years and finally got profit sharing in the 96 contract. The one thing I can say is that to teach your students is how to fight smarter and to never give up. I learned this from a venerable fighter named Jack Maschhoff who was the designer of the UAW logo in the very early days of the UAW with Walter and Victor Reuther. Also was a great WWII hero.. Remember that it is not how many dogs you have in the fight but how much fight you have in the dog that matters most.
