<nettime> [Fw: [Nettime-ro] total fertility rate] Re: nettime-l-digest V1 #1089

I've always thought they should put the author credentials next to the by
line, especially when the article appears in a newspaper. This is not
informative journalism on recent UN statistics, but a seriously loaded
piece, although well camouflaged as such.  At least the Times had the
insight to place it inside the opinion page, not at all what I can say for
most outlets.

For those who are less in tune with ruse of nonideological thinktanks here
in America - indeed there has been a veritable explosion of such
'institutes' - AEI is a neoconservative/neoliberal thinktank in D.C.
Perhaps on par with the Cato Institute. 

As found in their charter:

"The American Enterprise Institute for Public Policy Research is dedicated
to preserving and strengthening the foundations of freedom -- limited
government, private enterprise, vital cultural and political institutions,
and a strong foreign policy and national defense."

As far as Ben J. Wattenberg's ideological orientation. Those hovelling dark
skinned masses will have to wait and see.
