Early voting in Georgia. On the 20th of October this old Goldwater conservative voted against both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton by casting my vote for Gary Johnson. Neither Trump or Clinton belong within a million miles of the Oval Office.
Anyway, good for Minnesota!
AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.
First cousins having offspring (even the first generation) do have an increased risk of genetic problems. The average couple having children is about 2% risk, while first cousins have about a 4% risk. This isn't that big of a risk and is about the same that is seen with older mothers. Now, second generation first cousins and some other relatives (aunts/uncles with nieces/nephews) have a higher risk increase. Then siblings and parent/child have a first generation increase to about 40% for their children to have genetic problems.
(I found this on a site, but I can't seem to find it again. I will continue looking for it and post what I can find. I know there are a lot of places that show a small risk increase though for first cousins, first generation incest.)
Plus, with first cousins the state can't logically claim in the US a high probability of undue influence since the majority of Americans are not raised with their cousins (I am actually a rarity here because I was raised within the same town, many times within walking distance if not in the house or backyard, of all but two of my first cousins (which made it 7 of my first cousins), I consider them as close as siblings). There are some families in the US where the children don't even know their cousins or even of them.
