* Mario Rizzo is clearly not one of us. He writes, “Over the past two years I have been reading more than I ever dreamed about rationality in economics, especially in the standard neoclassical theory of choice. I have done this because I want to get at the root of the controversies concerning whether people’s behavior is, in particular contexts, rational or not.” Mario, if everybody spent two years reading up on a field before pontificating, the economics blogosphere would come crashing down. What would Kant think of your antisocial behavior?
* A nice presentation from David R. Henderson on free-market fallacies. My favorite part is where he asks the students what types of monopolies bother them, and David is expecting them to list things monopolized by the government. One kid says, “Airlines!” and David basically says, “No, that’s not what bothers you, airlines have been deregulated.” (I love David like an uncle, by the way.)
* A nice video by Tom Woods on the wit and wisdom of Rick Santorum. (I love Tom like a brother, by the way.)
* A nice post from Scott Sumner blasting Keynesians. (I love Scott like a customer service representative, by the way.)
* A new Voluntaryist website.
* Even I don’t have the time to watch this raw footage of an interview a guy did of me, for a documentary on the Panic of 2008. But some of you may be more bored than me.
* I’m kind of a big deal. I intend to answer the most popular questions next week.
