Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin An overwhelming number of U.S. registered voters say they support higher tariffs on goods imported from China. According to a poll released this week by Morning Consult, 73% of survey respondents said they support the U.S. government using trade remedies on China to protect U.S. industries and American workers with a similar high number — 71% — supporting the trade war tariffs imposed on $250 billion worth of China imports during the Trump administration. Even with inflation at levels not seen since the 1970s, American voters seem willing to force companies to import from elsewhere or make it locally instead. “I am not surprised by these numbers,” says Harsh Khurana, CEO of WeCultivate, a tech company funded in part by Mark Cuban , that works as a browser extension on Amazon AMZN to show consumers American-made products. “Tariffs hurt the American consumer more than they hurt China's manufacturing because the … [Read more...] about Sorry, China.

Representative image The Federal Reserve's determination to raise interest rates until it squashes the highest inflation in decades is darkening the outlook across Wall Street, as U.S. stocks stand on the cusp of a bear market and warnings of a recession grow louder. At issue is the so-called Fed put, or investors’ belief that the Fed will take action if stocks fall too deeply, even though it has no mandate to maintain asset prices. One oft-cited example of the phenomenon, which is named after a hedging derivative used to protect against market falls, occurred when the Fed halted a rate hiking cycle in early 2019 after a stock market tantrum.

What’s the thread running between Three Mile Island, Chernobyl, Fukushima, Deepwater Horizon, and New York’s recent Metro North train derailment? Sleep deprivation . advertisement advertisement What’s bad news for us is that nearly half of Americans are sleep deprived –meaning they can pay less attention, make worse decisions, and are less trustworthy than well-rested versions of themselves. Why being perpetually underslept wrecks you (and your car, too) The reason multitasking sucks is because it fries our ability to filter out irrelevant information. Being perpetually underslept similarly sucks because it too reduces out ability to filter out the irrelevant stimuli, as Michael Chee, a sleep researcher at Duke-National University of Singapore, explained to us. In one of his labs experiments, he asked subjects to take part in a dumb task: hitting a button when a light flashes. But, as he explains, if you’re underslept, your vigilance drops … [Read more...] about The Neuroscience Of How Sleep Deprivation Can Kill You
