Andrew Yang is either a visionary or crazy ... I'm intrigued either way. I think automation is a bigger threat to American jobs then undocumented immigrants and no one is talking about it. I can't wait to hear his point of view

Is it nerdy to consider getting a copy of The Economist a treat? Asking for a friend. 😉

JanuarieTimewalker13 No, The Economist is great. I would read that!! Years and Years and Years ago, when you graduated with honors in Economics, you would get a free year of the Economist...I think the group was Omicron Delta Epsilon...I wonder if they still do that? 2d
Caroline2 No way; looking at the front cover and the other headlines, that sounds like a fascinating read! 👍🏻 2d
LeafingThroughLife @JanuarieTimewalker13 that‘s an excellent graduation gift. I was a poli sci major in college. My professors turned me on to The Economist back then. I had a subscription for a while and I miss it! 2d
LeafingThroughLife @Caroline2 it definitely is! Passed my time in the airport super quick! 🙂 2d

A nice overview of the concept of “Universal Basic Income“. She does a great job of presenting both sides of the argument, the challenges, the pro's and con's, and how other countries are experimenting with the idea. Whether you agree with UBI or not, by the end of the book there's a compelling case that unconditional cash seems to be better suited to help the underprivileged then requirement based social welfare programs.

I guess I'm in a nerdy phase of book reading lately 🤓 narrator is great which is a find for nonfiction books like these

I listened to this audiobook, whilw the first two parts of the story lay out the serious changes that are forth coming the last part provides a different story. One of hope and survival.

I think Andrew Yang is the only presidential nominee who is running as a Democrat who has a understanding of where we are going and what changes need to be in place to fix our issues before they become even bigger.

Caroline2 Hey, I have the SPRQ book too. 😀 is it any good?? 🤔 3w
squirrelbrain That‘s my TBR shelf @caroline2 - maybe another option for a #buddyread?! 3w
Caroline2 @squirrelbrain yes!!!! 😃 3w
squirrelbrain Let‘s get it booked in, and then we can pretend we‘re dead clever and everything, reading ‘Classics‘!! I get the feeling this might be a dippy in and out book rather than read-it-all-at-once so maybe we should set ourselves a ‘chapter plan‘ over a period of time rather than being all loosey-goosey!? What do you think? 3w
gradcat Hey you—terrific job on the July birthdays!! Kudos! 😘 2w
squirrelbrain Thanks Minette! @gradcat 😘 2w

I need a tutorial on Goodreads groups. Specifically, I can‘t find a way to leave groups I‘m no longer interested in and I can‘t remember how to respond to someone‘s post (quoting part of their post in my response). If there‘s a help function in Goodreads app I can‘t find it. Anyone?!?!?!?!

sprainedbrain Groups are not easy to manage in the app... it‘s much easier on a computer or web browser. I‘ve never been able to do much with groups in the app! 3w
tjwill You can‘t quote someone‘s response in the app, just from the website. I‘m not sure about leaving groups. It is probably the same. I typically use the app, even though it has limitations. 3w
Carolyn11215 @sprainedbrain @tjwill well that explains my lack of success then. Thanks! 3w

Last year I read Nickel and Dimed with my seniors. While I thought it was good for them to read about experiences they may not be that close to, I did find her book a bit meh. I wanted them to read more about the people living these lives and less about a fairly affluent person play acting. I‘m hoping this is good and I can use it in class this year!

Skyrimir @Megabooks Thanks for the suggestion! I‘ll check it out. (edited) 3w
