New bill would require personal finance to be taught in school

Westlake Legal Group 0DtJhKhJGF9qX5AI-ZMMluALqPilAn0A2kVViPo18Fo New bill would require personal finance to be taught in school r/politics

Nah, they just make the text books for the classes. Lots of schools already have personal finance classes and most of them are meh in actual usefulness.

It’ll be up to each state as is their interpretation of personal finance so…. Without some kind of standardization and the states just making it up as they go I wouldn’t put too much faith in the idea.

Teaching kids the basics of how to balance a checkbook and do taxes doesn’t really wind up doing much because they’re not actually doing taxes or spending money and the lessons just don’t mean much.

it’s hard to simulate personal finance and responsibility when you stop and think about it because they don’t really have bills or income or concerns.

I think a class on like how to manage a house and how not to waste all your money on food and getting fat would you better classes.

In a lot of ways I don’t think teaching them the mathematics of personal finance isnt going to be very useful because that doesn’t impact the way people impulsively buy things. Like If you’re addicted to snacks and ice cream it doesn’t really help if you financially manage your addiction in a way that allows you to afford it so much as you need to realize that your impulsive buying or eating habit is not sustainable.

in the case of personal finance you need to teach people how not to make stupid decisions that get them in debt but these stupid decisions are often well beyond the scope of any kind of personal finance class…. Like don’t get addicted to nicotine or alcohol or don’t buy a big fancy car you can barely afford as a status symbol.

Trump Brags About Serving Up American Troops to Saudi Arabia for Nothing More Than Cash

Westlake Legal Group 4K79sYfXXjWBD8dn9PCqc6TZi-jxbliyzojhOsj3NFo Trump Brags About Serving Up American Troops to Saudi Arabia for Nothing More Than Cash r/politics

Sorry, but I’m hijacking your comment for visibility because something seemed wrong with the article. Basically, I was under the impression this was actually a pretty common place practice, and was surprised with no one adding in that context in the comment section. I found a really pertinent article from 2016.

www.latimes.com/nation/la-na-trump-allies-20160930-snap-story.html%3F_amp%3Dtrue

Essentially, one of Trumps gripes from back then was that the US wasn’t being paid for military support. This isn’t a new strategy, and unfortunately the rolling stone article doesn’t go into how he plans to use these troops.

Interestingly the 2016 article notes that Trump believed foreign countries didn’t reimburse the US for its military support, which was false. If you look at his words from a political perspective, Trump is trying to take credit for an existing policy to frame him as a deal maker. It’s still bullshit, far less infuriating bull shit.

The real analysis is for how he plans to use these troops and this policy. The 2016 article pointed out that 2 billion dollars paid for about 1/3 to half of US troops. I don’t know how many troops are in the Saudi Arabia or Japan, but it doesn’t sound the US typically makes a return on sending soldiers overseas. So again, not mercenaries, just a bumbling idiot trying to take credit for essentially doing nothing. Now, will Trump use this irresponsibly? I feel like I’m not the one to answer this question, but I’m leaning that the US won’t be making a profit of US soldiers any time soon.

Just a heads up I’m a liberal leaning libertarian and I don’t have a background in political science, so consider everything I say from that bias.

Discussion Thread: Democratic Presidential Primary Polling – January 2020

Welcome to the r/Politics polling discussion thread for the Democratic Primary. With only 23 days remaining until the Iowa caucuses, the field is continuing to narrow. Since our last discussion thread in December, Julian Castro and Marianne Williamson have suspended their campaigns. The seventh Democratic Debates will take place on Tuesday, January 14th and will feature the six candidates who met the DNC’s polling and donor thresholds (5% in four approved polls OR 7% in two approved early-state polls, and 225,000 unique donors with at least 1000 in 20 different states or territories) by yesterday’s deadline: Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, Pete Buttigieg, Amy Klobuchar, and Tom Steyer. Michael Bloomberg is not eligible for the DNC debates because of his choice to decline donor money, and Andrew Yang fell short of the polling threshold.

Below is a list of polls that have been released since the last megathread we did, showing where the qualifying candidates stand. Please be mindful of following the rules of r/politics when participating.

[1] – Poll of Democrats and Independents (the other Ipsos poll from the same date range is of Democrats only)

A few tips when looking at polls:

  • All polling isn’t created equal. Some pollsters have distinct leans towards one candidate or another as a result of polling methodology that oversamples or undersamples certain demographics. A large distinction is online-only polls versus live caller vs robocalling polls. In other instances, some pollsters just consistently have poorer showings than others (the FiveThirtyEight pollster ratings chart is a good approximation) and might warrant less weight.

  • Don’t compare apples to oranges. Polls generally should reach the same result, but sometimes there is a systemic undervaluation or overvaluation of one candidate or another. Trendlines between polling firms is not very useful. Trendlines within the same poll, however, might yield much more useful comparisons.

  • Polling goes stale quickly at this time of the year. As we approach the Iowa caucuses, the polling will likely start changing a lot, which may or may not shake up the race. A poll from the beginning of the month might no longer be instructive at this point in time, for instance. A rolling average of recent polls is a better estimate, and what outlets like 538 and RCP tend to do when they have enough polling to do so.

  • Keep in mind the sample size. This isn’t aimed at the toplines, but the cross-tabs that sometimes get published. These polls are often just 300-500 people nationally, meaning a subsample for a particular minority group or socioeconomic class can end up being just a few dozen responses, which often gets parsed for support for individual candidates. A trend across a number of polls is still significant, but individual polling in this case is less useful.

  • Polls are just polls. At the end of the day, polls don’t vote, people do. If your candidate is down, or if they’re doing well, the polls are only meant to be a reflection of what the pollster thinks the current electorate looks like. Don’t take that to mean your preferred candidate is done, or that they have a glide path to the nomination. What happens in the primary is a product of far more than just the polling being done.
