Busing cruises back into debate The debate turned to federally mandated busing and pitted Sen. Kamala Harris of California against former Vice President Joe Biden again. Harris denied her stance was similar to the vice president's. “That is simply false,” she said. “When Vice President Biden was in the United States Senate working with segregationist to oppose busing” to integrate schools ... “had I been in the United States Senate at that time, I would have been completely on the other side of the aisle. Now let’s be clear about this, I would not be a member of the United States Senate.” Harris said Biden won’t acknowledge it was wrong to take his position. Biden then took aim at Harris’ time as the attorney general … [Read more...] about Live: Busing cruises back into Dem debate

Candidates spar on illegal border crossings In a give and take that was again interrupted by protesters, Democratic candidates exchanged barbs regarding immigration policy and past records on the issue. Candidates repeatedly questioned former Vice President Joe Biden about deportations that occurred under former President Barack Obama, but Biden refused to divulge his position on that policy. He noted that Obama improved the fates of immigrants and Dreamers, increased the number of immigrants allowed into the country and efforts to address the problems pushing immigrants into the U.S. “To compare him with Donald Trump, I think is absolutely bizarre,” Biden said of Obama. U.S. Sen. Cory Booker of New Jersey was among those pressing Biden on his position, but he also … [Read more...] about Live at Dem debate: Candidates spar on illegal border crossings

Sarah Gray, provided by Published 9:55 pm PDT, Thursday, April 25, 2019 Sergio Flores/Getty Images Sen. Elizabeth Warren, a Democrat from Massachusetts and 2020 presidential candidate, released her proposal to erase a good portion of student loan debt and provide free public college. The plan was met with mixed reviews online: people were either angry that they had already paid their loans back, or chose a different college to avoid debt in the first place, while others praised her for the move. Dr. Josh Bivens, research director at the left-leaning Economic Policy Institute, explained in an email to INSIDER that the "short-run macro benefits are neutral to good." Whether voters are fans of the plan or not (and there are plenty who are not), Warren's proposal has put student debt front and center of the 2020 election debate.

By James Mackintosh WSJ Thu., Jan. 24, 2019 The head of one of the world’s largest long-term investors has a warning for shareholders and the financial elite meeting in Davos: Start acting like owners of the companies in which you invest, or prepare for a populist backlash against modern capitalism. Michael Sabia, who runs $270 billion Canadian pension fund Caisse de dépôt et placement du Québec, fears that finance has forgotten its original purpose as backers of corporate investment. Instead, financiers have become mere tourists who care little about the companies they own. He’s got a point. At the same time, complaints about myopic shareholders speculating on stocks they know nothing about are as old as markets themselves. Start with the problem. “Too many equity investors are tourists; they’re not interested in building a business,” says Mr. Sabia. Instead of stepping up and encouraging the companies they own to … [Read more...] about A Davos Debate: What Is Finance for?
