On this week’s first podcast, Abe and Noah and John discuss the crisis of competence suggested by the failure to hand a movie star the right envelope. Might seem silly, but it’s never happened before, and it’s happened at a time when nobody seems to be able to do anything properly. Give a listen.

    Brilliant article, mentioned in this brilliant podcast:

    Its definitely worth the read, this article feeds my confirmation bias, in that I have said for a long time – even during the Bush years – that all economic statistics coming out of government are wrong.

    The Economy is not growing. The unemployment rate isnt low. Inflation is much higher than reported.

    A fun drinking game is to take a drink every time John says the word “dovetails.”
