You can hate getting scared and still want to watch scary movies. I’m a little crying baby, but I didn’t let that stop me from enjoying The Babadook, or enjoying and then hating 10 Cloverfield Lane. My strategy for both was simple: watch on the couch with a friend, pausing a little for drinks. It worked great, I only…Read more...

Right-wing extremists have never been subtle about their goal to eliminate three key programs. Everyone who cares about their Social Security, Medicare or Medicaid needs to vote on November 6. If Republican politicians and the donors who own them retain full control of Congress, they are determined to finally succeed in their longstanding goal of ending all three programs.Right-wing extremists have never been subtle about that goal. As the fight over President George W. Bush’s 2005 proposal to privatize Social Security was heating up, a leaked memorandum from Bush’s director of strategic initiatives, dated January 3, 2005, and marked “not for attribution,” put the fight over the program in context: “this will be one of the most important conservative undertakings of modern times.” If that weren’t clear enough, the memorandum concluded with a startling and refreshingly frank assessment: “For the first time in six decades, the Social Security battle is one we can wi...

In the spring of 1995, I was sitting in the player dining area at Atlanta Country Club during the week of the now defunct BellSouth Classic. There were four players sitting at the table and the subject was Johnny Miller, who was about to work his first U.S. Open as a broadcaster in June, NBC having won the rights to the championship from ABC. “It’s a disgrace they’re going to let that guy do the Open,” said one player—a solid veteran who had never won on the the PGA Tour, but had steadily kept his card for years.

Bayern Munich's Arjen Robben insists his side need to regain confidence after a 1-1 draw with Ajax capped off a week of recent poor results. After the final whistle had sounded in the 1-1 draw against Ajax, Bayern Munich manager Niko Kovac appeared no less stunned than the Allianz Arena crowd about his team's puzzlingly poor showing. "I need to first let that sink in and gather my thoughts," Kovac pleaded with TV reporters, making no secret of his struggle to come to terms with the deeply disconcerting concoction of failure he had just witnessed. Bar the determined, muscular opening 15 minutes of the game, his team had been so sloppy...

Manchester City's Champions League campaign might have gotten off to a rough start, but Pep Guardiola's side continues to have its way on the home front. The Citizens look to remain undefeated in the Premier League when they welcome Brighton & Hove Albion to the Etihad on Saturday. A 2-1 loss to French side Lyon was not the way City (5-1-0) intended to begin play in the Champions League on Sept. 19, but the club didn't let that result linger when they returned to England.

Unless banks and governments switch gears from tax cuts to addressing inequality, we may be in for a lengthy economic downturn soon. When Claudio Borio speaks, the big bankers and investors, the economics profession, and senior policymakers listen quite carefully—even if his sentiments don’t reach the shores of the popular media. Borio, the chief economist for the Bank for International Settlements (BIS), the central bankers’ central bank, recently remarked on the fragility of the global economy, and suggested that we were on the verge of a significant relapse similar to the global crash experienced 10 years ago. Among the parallels he perceives: the proliferation of “collateralized loan obligations (CLOs), which are ‘close cousins’ of the infamous instruments known as collateralized debt obligations, or CDOs, and securities backed by residential mortgages,” the prevalence of which helped to crater the credit system in 2008.Mindful as central bankers have been about...
