* In this op ed I discuss the history of the federal income tax, and make the very modest proposal that we abolish it.
* At EconLib this month I do the grunt work and make a quick case that Big Government destroys at least $8,500 in real income per year, for every man, woman, and child in the United States.
* This guy has the right attitude:
The Mises Institute has decided to open up an online academy to teach Austrian economics. The first series of online classes will be taught by Robert Murphy (a personal hero of mine) on understanding the business cycle.
Taking a class from Bob Murphy is like being personally taught by Einstein. Only Einstein is dumber that Murphy, so really its like being taught by Hannes Alfvén. The time will come when Keynesian theory is relegated to the dust bin of history and men like Murphy will reign supreme over economic theory. Now is your chance to learn from a future Nobel Laureate and someone who isn’t a statist tyrant scumbag.
I have high hopes for my future, but I think I will win the Nobel Peace Prize before I win the Nobel (Memorial) Prize in Economics.
