==> Rob Bradley has some neat quotes from Milton Friedman, some of which I’ve never seen before.
==> Arthur Laffer and Ford Scudder lay out the looming “fiscal cliff.” Some big numbers for tax-rate increases that are currently in the cards.
==> The grand shi strategy of Ron Paul.
==> The mischievous von Pepe sends me John Cochrane trying to explain his inflation warnings vis-a-vis Krugman’s mocking. Eh, I am sympathetic–and Cochrane has some good zingers–but I still am not sure how I feel on the whole thing.
==> I don’t pump every one of these types of posts your way, but here is an example of what I do on a regular basis in my work on energy policy. You would not believe the crazy stuff that some of the left-leaning environmental economists put out. I’m not talking about people saying carbon emissions constitute an externality and so we need a carbon tax. I’m talking about people saying a carbon tax will force businesses to install insulation and they’ll end up with bigger profit margins, etc.
==> I had a long interview with “Manifest Liberty” on all sorts of issues, ranging from free markets (of the Murphy kind, not the Krugman kind) to Christianity (of the Jesus kind, not the Hitchens kind). The first of 5 parts is here on YouTube.
