Mayor Bloomberg is going through one of his more sensible phases, at least on the recent evidence.
ABC News reports:
Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg said America should "get behind" President Trump because "the public has spoken, whether you like the results or not...We have an election — whoever wins, you got to get behind."
"He's our president, and we need this country to be run well. I didn't vote for him," Bloomberg added. "Let's just all hope that Donald Trump is a good president of the United States."...
But Bloomberg said people should still fight policies they don't agree with.
"You can protest. You can elect other officials, write letters, make phone calls," he said. "But in the end, the public has spoken, whether you like the results or not."
And Mr. Bloomberg has a piece in his own Bloomberg Businessweek magazine:
work is an important part of what gives our lives meaning and direction. Giving people a check isn't the same as giving them an opportunity to pursue their ambitions and fulfill their potential....keeping working-age adults in the labor market, rather than them sitting at home, is a goal worth pursuing...
We will also have to rethink our approach to education, which follows an antiquated model: School years are based on an agricultural economy that required children to work the fields during the summer months. Education laws stifle innovation and parental choice.
