The Weekly Top 3 (11.18.2019)

Welcome to The Weekly Top 3 — our look at the top 3 things on our mind this week — for the week of November 18, 2019.

The Weekly Top 3 is a regular weekly segment on The Michael Dukes Show. The Show broadcasts on FacebookLive and via streaming audio from the Show’s website weekdays from 6-8am. I join Michael each week on Tuesday’s show, from 6:20-7am, for a discussion between the two of us about the three issues.

This week our Top 3 issues are these: 1) what Bruce Tangeman’s resignation as Revenue Comm’r likely means for fiscal policy (at 1:47), 2) why we won’t get spending under control as long as we rely on PFDcuts (and why we will if we use a mechanism that taxes the Top20%) (20:39), and 3) why continued low bond yields are likely to have a big — and adverse — impact on Alaska (31:04).

The segment is at the YouTube clip above. For those that prefer the audio version, it is available on our Soundcloud page here. For this and other complete podcasts of The Michael Dukes Show, go to the Show’s Soundcloud page here.
