171. Obama now

July 21, 2009 § Leave a comment

it looks like he will deal with, in order

  • 1. health
  • 2. finance and employment (this is a complex system)
  • 3. climate change

while trying to improve international relations in all directions.

It looks like he might

1. fail with medicine because he allowed special interests to *increase* costs and lose those voters who are concerned about cost. If this happens he will be even weaker to deal with 2

2. Being surrounded by Rubin colleagues he has lost leverage, hence change may not be possible.

3. with less power, facing climate change will be impossible,e

The logic that says that climate change requires education, health, jobs, technology and really tough regulation – all to create a new economy – will not be achievable.
