The World Is Filled With Whippersnappers--Yes, Ezra Klein I Mean You
I mostly like Mr. Klein's work, but the transcript of his chat today provokes the title. First, he admits he had no credit, because he always used a debit card. Second, he's asked why the limited range of brackets for the income tax, and I get the blinding revelation that Mr. Klein was at best a babe in arms when Sen. Bradley and Rep. Rostenkowski got through the 1986 tax bill. I recommend the book on that process to anyone who wants to watch sausage being made.
