Stephen Moore is the conservative commentator whom President Trump plans to nominate to the Federal Reserve Board. Moore said:
I’d get rid of a lot of these child labor laws. I want people starting to work at 11, 12.
Trump’s Fed pick Steve Moore on CSpan in 2000: “The male needs to be the breadwinner. One reasons you’ve seen decline of the family, not just in black community but now in white community as well, is because women are more economically self-sufficient.”

Pound this dude for misogyny all day, but don't miss out on how economically illiterate he is. Look to the countries that deny 50% of their population from entering the workforce. They either rely on on extraction industries or they're a basket case.

Yet no one is surprised Trump wants him on the fed. At what point do women wake up to this president how many more times must he show hes go no respect for women. they say much about women just to appease but they do nothing Watch wht they do not wht they say

@StephenMoore this frigging child support dodger needs to be in jail not on the fed. He didn't pay his child support until four police, two realtors, and a locksmith raided his home: report. Matthew Chapman 08 Apr 2019

I’m still trying to figure out how this man, managed to fail up enough to now bc he is being considered for this job. How/Why in the World was he ever considered an “Economist” and “Financial Expert”? He is the stock photo caption of “Fake it until you Make it”.

My worry is that we focus on these issues rather than on his horrible economic record and the fact that his being appointed would call into question the independence of the Fed.
