The Minsky Moment

Quote from: Jacob on May 13, 2022, 01:55:19 PMThe fact that the American right is going on about the evil leftist who must've done it sets up the expectation that it was done by a right-wing actor.

I don't have any particular insight or evidence, but it fits the general pattern.

Maybe but it doesn't seem like anyone has a real clue.

I think it is as simple as the right wing media and pols taking advantage of the informational void to push a clear if factually baseless narrative, secure in the knowledge that responsible media will take no position.  We've known since Goebbels that in the world of propaganda and political messaging, the side with less integrity has a structural advantage.
The purpose of studying economics is not to acquire a set of ready-made answers to economic questions, but to learn how to avoid being deceived by economists.
--Joan Robinson


Also I think the media - especially the American media - is susceptible to reporting a big fight about process and norms, rather than substance.
