My new post: after years of reliably battling against regulation, many businesses find themselves in the odd position of asking the Trump administration for tighter rules. Why? They fear the crony capitalist economy his deregulatory agenda seeks to create.  https://www.vox.com/energy-and-environment/2019/8/30/20840224/businesses-oppose-trump-deregulatory-agenda-rules?utm_campaign=drvox&utm_content=chorus&utm_medium=social&utm_source=twitter 

Ha! Extremely on-theme for today's post: Trump *literally blaming business executives* for a crappy economy.

Oh, look, @jendlouhyhc and I wrote the exact same piece today! Hers is probably better, but it's behind a subscription wall, so... checkmate, I guess.  https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2019-08-30/trump-gives-businesses-deregulation-whether-they-want-it-or-not 

And @AP has a piece on the same theme:  https://www.apnews.com/a4bbcd6b04014d27aca276bc08733c28 

Also very on-theme for today's post: the US Chamber of Commerce's Global Energy Institute put out a *scathing* report on Trump's fuel economy rules.  https://www.eenews.net/assets/2019/08/30/document_gw_01.pdf
