China's economic slowdown: 11 things you should know

vox.com — China is the world's second-largest economy, after the United States, and it's been growing so rapidly for so long that rapid Chinese economic growth has become part of the landscape for an entire generation. Yet in recent years, people have been warning that the model underlying that rapid growth is unsustainable.

How Donald Trump can win

vox.com — Donald Trump has been underestimated enough times in 2015 that's worth offering him a little bit of benefit of the doubt. The odds against him remain daunting given the way he's alienated the Republican Party's dominant tax cuts uber alles faction but his combination of wealth, celebrity, and apparent popularity against the GOP rank-and-file gives him at least a sliver of the shot.

Stat check: Jeb Bush says he "cut state spending more than anybody"

vox.com — The rank-and-file conservative base does not share rich Wall Street donors' enthusiasm for Jeb Bush, so the Bush campaign is seeking to bolster its conservative bona fides with the argument that Jeb is the No. 1 spending cutter in the field. I cut state spending more than anybody.

Hillary Clinton's emails show that Washington is more Veep than House of Cards

vox.com — I like politics and I like watching television, so naturally I love TV shows about Washington. The sentimental favorite, of course, is The West Wing , a show in which politics is about the Big Ideas and Big Issues that brought most of us to DC in the first place.

Why I don’t think Joe Biden should run for president

vox.com — 1. Joe Biden is apparently interested in running a third presidential campaign. 2. I've managed to work as a professional journalist in Washington, DC for over 12 years without ever speaking to Biden in any capacity. 3. Had I done so, I might see some of the political or substantive appeal that most political reporters claim to see in the man.

The Coming Trump-Cruz GOP Ticket - Open Thread

obsidianwings.blogs.com — It seems Scott Walker is an incredibly bad candidate and all foam/no beer to boot. We have Trump running circles around him and the rest of the, uh, distinguished gentlemen (and Ms. Fiorina) with nothing more than his hair and "BLARGH! I STRONG!" as a campaign. Jeebus.

President McKinley's policies were garbage, and he doesn't deserve an awesome mountain

vox.com — President Obama's decision to return the former Mount McKinley to its original name, Denali, has the McKinley administration of 1897 to 1901 back in the news for the first time in more than a century.

Mount McKinley is being renamed Denali by President Obama

vox.com — On Sunday, the Obama administration announced that the peak formerly known as Mount McKinley will henceforth be known as "Denali," its traditional Native Alaskan name. The mountain was officially named after President William McKinley in 1917, a gesture originally proposed by an Alaska gold prospector in recognition of McKinley's support for the gold standard.

I’m hopeful that the Straussian reading of Obama’s Denali decision is a strong stance against a September rate hike: vox.com/2015/8/31/9231…

This map shows how house prices have evolved in America's biggest cities

vox.com — Everyone knows that house prices rose in the aughts and then crashed in the lead-up to the Great Recession. But housing is also a quintessentially local market - you can't just swap a home in San Francisco for one in Detroit.

Should the Fed binge on M&Ms in September so it can go on a diet next year?

vox.com — When the economy enters a recession, the Federal Reserve normally responds by reducing interest rates to try to stimulate demand for business equipment, houses, cars, and durable goods.
