Those benefiting from these destructive "solutions" may think the system can go on forever, but it cannot go on when every "solution" becomes a self-reinforcing problem that amplifies all the other systemic problems. We are living in an interesting but by no means unique dynamic in which the solutions to problems such as slow growth and inequality have become the problems. This is a dynamic I have often discussed in various contexts. In essence, a solution that was optimized for an earlier era and situation is repeatedly applied to the present--but the present is unlike the past, and the old solution is no longer optimized to current conditions.The old solution isn't just a less-than-optimal solution; it actively makes the problem worse.As a result, the old solution becomes a new

Following the collapse of the House GOP health plan, President Trump and congressional Republicans say they will now pivot to tax reform. But they have got some serious heavy lifting to do before they get there. The appropriations bill passed last November expires at the end of April. With Republicans divided, the GOP may now have to rely on Democratic votes to pass a funding package, and that, to put it lightly, will be difficult. Convincing emboldened Democrats to back the president's spending cuts will be a hard deal to broker. Click the audio player above to hear the full story.

Ford Motor Company announced a $1.2 billion investment in U.S. facilities this morning. President Trump touted the news by tweeting  “Car companies coming back to the U.S. JOBS! JOBS! JOBS!” Ford said 130 jobs would be “created or retained” by its move and that just $350 million are new investments. Some of the others investments had been announced as long ago as 2015. Marketplace host Molly Wood talked with Joe Hinrichs, Ford's executive vice president of the Americas, about what the announcement means. Below is an edited transcript of their conversation. Molly Wood: Your announcement today says the plan will create or retain 130 jobs there in Michigan. Do you have any sense of how that breakdown looks? Joe Hinrichs: Yes. All of the actual new jobs are all the Romeo Engine Plant — 130 of them. We say create or retain because we redeploy some efficiencies and other things that happen in a normal basis in our plan. So, there's 130 incremental jobs created in the Romeo engine plant, but they won't be hiring 130 direct hires. There will be some, because we'll redeploy some resources. Another big important part of this investment though, is that without this investment, 3,600 employees in the Michigan assembly plant would be without work and so protecting those 3,600 jobs with this investment is also a big deal. Wood: And let me ask you though, was there a plan to get rid of those jobs? Like, does this represent a strategy change? Because even in January when you announced that you would be keeping the car factory here and not moving to Mexico, CEO Mark Fields said that that was a move that probably would have happened regardless of the current political administration. So how much of a change in plans does this represent, aside from just a business growth? Hinrichs: Yeah. The major investments have been in the works for quite some time. So, I wouldn't call it any of that a change in plans. The January investment to put $700 million into the Flat Rock Assembly plant was a change in plans. We had not decided where to build those products, and so we made that decision in December. The production of Ranger and Bronco and in the Michigan Assembly Plant has been in the works for quite some time. And of course, the new engine components for Romeo have been in the works for quite some time. The data center decisions have been made in the last six to nine months, that's been an incremental decision. Wood: Is it OK that President Trump takes credit for these moves? I mean, it seems to be a little bit of a game back and forth. Hinrichs: Well, we reached out to the White House a little before 8 a.m. this morning to give them a heads-up on the news we're making today. We had not had conversations with them prior to that time period. Wood: And is that common? Was your government affairs team in contact with President Obama too? Hinrichs: Yes. On a major announcement, we would let all stakeholders know in advance to give them a heads-up. Obviously, it's good news. We want to share it with everybody from governors to senators and congressmen and congresswomen to the White House. We do that often on big announcements. Yes. Wood: Obviously, this administration is different in terms of a direct engagement with companies by name on Twitter. That is obviously uncharted territory, but how common is it for the winds of the political administration to direct your business strategy? Hinrichs: Well, we have to make decisions for decades. So we don't get the luxury of making decisions that are four years in nature. So our decisions really take into account where we see long-term things going. But we actually are watching very carefully the pro-growth initiatives that the Trump administration is pursuing, especially on tax reform and infrastructure investment and how that could affect the industry both in the medium term and the long term. Wood: So would you say it affects your PR strategy more than your business strategy? Hinrichs: Well, we're certainly adjusting to some changes in what's going on and the attention of the auto industry and attention on manufacturing jobs. But it suits very well our plan. I mean, we're the largest producer of vehicles in the United States, and we employ more manufacturing workers than anybody else in the auto industry. So you know, it fits really nicely with our priorities and where our plans have been for quite some time. Wood: That's Joe Hinrichs, the Ford president of the Americas. Thank you so much for your time, sir.

The order's main target is former President Barack Obama's Clean Power Plan, which required states to slash carbon emissions from power plants - a key factor in the United States' ability to meet its commitments under a climate change accord reached by nearly 200 countries in Paris in 2015. Trump's decree also reverses a ban on coal leasing on federal lands, undoes rules to curb methane emissions from oil and gas production and reduces the weight of climate change and carbon emissions in policy and infrastructure permitting decisions. Carbon dioxide and methane are two of the main
