Brad DeLong @de1ong: It isn’t a metaphor? Three people rent rooms in the house of risk management? :-(

Downtown Josh Brown: @ReformedBroker: "My dad has $1.8 million dollars worth of GE. What should he do?”

Brad DeLong: @de1ong: Send them to read The Money Game: “the stock does not know that you own it”. You say the problem would not arise if they had read it? Oh well...

Matthew Yglesias: This thing Roseanne did:

Matthew Yglesias @mattyglesias: This thing Roseanne did where she gave herself an A grade for Hurricane Maria response but then it turned out actually thousands of people had died was really beyond the pale.

@Pulpiteer: Much luck with this approach.

@TheCheekyGinger: Are you being satirical or is this a thing that actually happened? It's Roseanne. I cannot tell.

Jason Furman: Even taking out the oil/mining category :

Jason Furman @jasonfurman: Even taking out the oil/mining category of investment which has seen large increases lately due to rapidly rising prices, business fixed investment was still an impressive 8.3% in Q1, much more than the average for recent years.

Brad DeLong @de1ong: Yeah: but it was supposed to jump by $800 billion at an annual rate...

Andy Slavitt: 300 patient groups:

Nicholas Bagley @nicholasbagley_: If I have to pick between caving to interest-group pressure or pushing through a rigid ideological agenda in the face of basic economic realities, I pick caving.

Andy Slavitt: @ASlavitt: BREAKING: 300 patient groups, pediatricians, seniors and other health care experts pan Trump’s new insurance rules sabotaging the ACA. That’s 95% of health care groups. In favor? The NRA...
