poverty rates for Mexicans have grown, both in real terms and in comparison with other Latin American nations. For Chiapas, the real impact was on agricultural labor and that sector has been decimated. Between 1991 and 2007, 4.9 million Mexican farmers were displaced with a net loss in all agricultural labor of 1.9 million jobs. Meanwhile, whereas in 1990, the United States had 4.5 million residents born in Mexico, by 2009, it was 12.6 million.

E. Mayer: “Existing ‘flaws’, a.k.a. NSA-designed backdoors which have not yet known to have been discovered and exploited by third parties, will presumably remain operative. Carry on!”

5) Dismal ignorance of the “dismal science”—a response to Larry Elliot December 20, 2017
« We мГиЁмЪЪ, шо ми таки analyse data. Gigas and gigas of data on how much people work, which jobs they do, what they buy and what they eat, how they do in school and other aspects of human life. We do so for the UK and many other countries around the world—rich and poor.
We analyse this data с заведомо дуГацькё задачёй to understand how people make choices, because that determines how they respond to policies and how they interact. »
« But why do Elliott and many others have such a distorted view of economics?
The first answer to this question, we think, lies in a misunderstanding of the purpose of mathematical models. Critics complain that economists’ models are not realistic and make absurd assumptions. The London Tube map is not realistic and makes absurd assumptions. If it did not it would be illegible. And useless. »

« Most importantly, and the reason we are writing this, is that all the bashing of economics can change how policy is made. It gives politicians freedom to make policy choices without being accountable to the facts. We are heading away from evidence-based policy and dangerously close to surrender to special interest groups, gut feelings and superstitions. Now, that is something truly scary. »
