It’s all in the hat!

September 1st, 2015 at 5:31 pm

This whole time I’m crunching numbers, holding events, publishing papers, trying to elevate full employment to the national goal it deserves to be, when I should have just worn a hat.

From an interview with someone at a focus group of Trump supporters:

“We know his goal is to make America great again,” another woman said. “It’s on his hat. And we see it every time it’s on TV. Everything that he’s doing, there’s no doubt why he’s doing it: it’s to make America great again.”

Anthony M crushed it on the design, I thought:

You think I’m kidding?! Wait til I show up in your neighborhood sporting one of these babies. Or maybe I’ll just take a stroll down Independence Ave. in front of the Fed building…Stan F will be looking out his window, and not realizing why, he’ll ask himself: “Why would I want to raise rates…what was I thinking?!”

Remember folks, the Donald might be crazy, but he’s crazy like a fox, if not a Fox.

    I hope this is to appear on Cafe Press or equivalent very soon…

    Very funny! Where can I buy one of those hats?

  3. Tom in MN says:

    Of course Trump has a more pressing reason to want to wear a hat (any hat) than you do!

    I would buy that hat, and I bet thousands of others would too. Consider T-shirts and bumper stickers too. A fundraiser for your favorite think tank?

    “Full employment” as the best way to get everyone back to work and to put upward pressure on everyone’s wages would seem to be an easy-to-understand political winner for any Democrat running for office. It’s not the “welfare-tax-and-spend” canard. And with “our long-neglected infrastructure” modernization and repair as the primary method government can contribute for achieving full employment, it’s something even Republican voters will find hard to object to.

    If the Democratic Presidential candidate takes a good lead in, say, September, 2016, based on the substance of policies that will be followed — especially giving priority to full employment (and downplaying deficit worries [when presented as the challenge] as something we can handle best when the economy is doing well and people are working (which is exactly the way it should be expressed for maximum public acceptance) — the candidate should start begging the potential electorate to give him (or more likely her) the Congress that will enact such policies, and vote Republicans, every one of whom will oppose them, out of office). It’s also a rather startling way to reinforce policy differences as the most important consideration in the election.
