The first debate featured an unprepared man repeatedly shouting over a highly prepared woman

A plea for sanity - and seriousness - in judging the debate

Cars take up way too much space in cities. New technology could change that. | The new new economy — When we talk about the problems associated with cars and transportation, we often focus on fatal accidents, or air pollution, or traffic jams. We less frequently consider how much sheer space cars take up in America's cities. But let's pause to give this some thought....

New research suggests an aging workforce is holding back economic growth | The new new economy — So far, the 2010s have been a disappointing decade for economic growth. Since the economic recovery began in 2009, the US economy has grown at an average, inflation-adjusted rate of just 2.1 percent per year. That's much slower than other recent recoveries. People have advanced...

Imagine if Mitt Romney were president amid this economic news — The unemployment rate is 4.9 percent. Consumer sentiment is back at its 1996 level. The Census Bureau says median incomes jumped by more in 2015 than in any year on record. Poverty is down. Inequality is declining. Health insurance coverage is up. We are far, far outpacing our peer nations.

The Big Idea - Vox — Vox is a general interest news site for the 21st century. Its mission is simple: Explain the news. Politics, public policy, world affairs, pop culture, science, business, food, sports, and everything else that matters are part of our editorial ambit. Our goal is to move people from curiosity to understanding.

Clinton’s doctor: candidate has pneumonia, “is now re-hydrated and recovering nicely” — Dr. Lisa Bardack, Hillary Clinton's doctor and the head of internal medicine at Mount Sinai Health System, has examined the candidate and released a statement on her health in the aftermath of this morning's fainting episode: Will this quiet speculation about Clinton's health, particularly amongst those who were certain the candidate was hiding a serious illness even before she exhibited symptoms? I doubt it.

Last night, Clinton got 6 questions on her emails. Trump got zero on his Iraq lies. — Political journalism trends toward equivalence. There is the Democratic Party and the Republican Party, and while they diverge in ideas, the media assumes they share their foibles and flaws, their minor and major corruptions, their grasping and opportunistic politicians.

Meet the good-paying job of the future | The new new economy — When the Bureau of Labor Statistics compiled data on the pay levels in the 10 most common occupations in America, one sticks out like a sore thumb: nursing. There are plenty of other good-paying jobs in the United States and plenty of other common jobs in the United States.

Here’s the best argument that computers could replace doctors, teachers, and even nannies | The new new economy — Artificial intelligence is improving rapidly, and a lot of people are worried that it will lead to massive job losses. In the past, technology mostly displaced workers doing routine tasks or manual labor. But as software becomes more sophisticated, there's a growing prospect that truck drivers, teachers, and perhaps even doctors could see their jobs replaced by a robot or a computer program.
