    Thomas L. Friedman: What America needs now is a Biden Unity Cabinet
    In the last Democratic debate, Joe Biden declared that he would nominate a woman as his vice-presidential running mate. That felt right at the time. But times have changed. Biden needs to go much, much further: At the Democratic convention he needs to name not just his vice president, but his entire Cabinet. And it needs to be a totally different kind of Cabinet — a national unity Cabinet — from Democrats on the Bernie Sanders left to Republicans on the Mitt Romney right. Why?Because

    Ross Douthat: In the fog of coronavirus, there are no experts
    Since the election of Donald Trump, the American media has become invested in the idea that the modern information landscape is defined by a great struggle between truth and falsehood, facts and misinformation, the real news and the fake. In this drama, there are enemies of truth, and then there is a besieged edifice of expertise, which needs to reclaim ground — whether via better fact-checks or better Facebook regulations — that’s been lost to trolls, populists and scam artist

    Paul Krugman: Will we flunk coronavirus economics?
    Just a month ago Donald Trump was still insisting that COVID-19 was a trivial issue, comparing it to the “common flu.” And he dismissed economic concerns; after all, during flu season, “nothing is shut down, life & the economy go on.”But pandemics come at you fast. Since Trump’s blithe dismissal, something like 15 million Americans have lost their jobs — the economic implosion is happening so quickly that official statistics can’t keep up.In our last
