Don't have a clue but they made a terrible mistake at the end of the energy crisis. When oil prices dropped they should have switched to a percentage tax that would have reduced costs in the short run but kept up with costs in the long run. Afterall, the cost to government increases when oil prices go up so it is a huge hit to the deficit. Especially when you maintain as large a military as the US.

I don't think so, nor how to balance a budget...but that seems to apply to anyone in politics these days.

She's got my attention.  Pretty much none of the other candidates do at this point. I was interested in Julian Castro early on, he's got a big climb up ahead of him.

Just my take (not in ranked order):

Warren: Smart, qualified, passionate about the right issues, fearless. A woman, which I believe we are ready for & need, she could be the one.

Sanders:  Had his moment, missed it. Seems too angry all the time, trigger-happy on dissing the other candidates. Likes to present himself as a non-politician, Independent, meanwhile plays hard-ball politics with the best of them (or worst). Won't commit to being a Democrat but runs in the Democratic race, can't have it both ways, not feeling the burn.

Biden: Also had his moment (twice).  Smart, decent Senator & VP. May be leading early, I predict he'll be dropping soon.

Booker: Smart guy, but not a standout. Can't figure out what he's really about.

Castro: I really like him & his ideas. Finding his voice. Likely to move up in the polls, but probably too early for him, maybe 4-8 years away.

Buttigieg: Interesting he's up near the top. Don't see him staying there, not enough experience. A military veteran. Watch him in the future.

Harris:  Came out on top early, couldn't sustain. Not likely to pick up steam. Not feeling she's being authentic enough.

Klbuchar: Have always like her, great ideas, good communication. Seem stuck in neutral, she needs to make a move soon or will be lost in the crowd.

O/Rourke:  As they say in Texas, all hat & no cattle. Comes off like a side-show barker. Seems to be looking for some bumper sticker that will stick. Nope.

Everyone else:  If I have to Google who you are....enjoy your 15 minutes.

She was a Harvard Law professor focusing in contract, commercial and bankruptcy laws and was a driving force in the creation of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau so yeah, I'm pretty sure she understands both concepts.
 
Just finished watching the debate—a bit chaotic but exciting and informative.

I was so hoping that Biden was just taking one for the team: popping his head up from the foxhole and drawing fire, while the rest of the candidates slip away without too much attention until they'd sorted out who was really running...

Warren is sharp and articulate.  I am a little concerned that she is too ambitious in her expressed desire to radically expand the US welfare state. 

In my view Democrats should stay away from free college tuition (for a bunch of reasons) and focus on universal single payer medical care.

But perhaps she has to make ambitious promises in order to get elected?  

Trump is going to leave a far more indebted US federal government. Double national gasoline taxes and there might be a little more fiscal room to play with.  But then ramping up excise/green/Pigouvian/carbon taxes on gasoline and diesel would be the political kiss of death, no cierto?.
