==> My thoughts on Earth Day.
==> In the context of the standard debates, I would be classified as an “open borders” kind of guy, but I think that is a terrible label. Somebody should ask Bryan Caplan why they don’t call it “freedom of migration” or “no CheckPoint Charlies” or something. “Open borders” sounds like you’re putting a bullseye on your crotch.
==> In this single post, Roderick Long has anticipated everything that will ever be said (in English) about the Nonaggression Principle.
==> Come on.
==> For those who know Nelson Nash (founder of the “Infinite Banking Concept”), check out this interview he gave in June 1961 when the government was trying to take over the timber industry. (Nash was originally a forester before going into life insurance.) The article has “federal takeover” in the title.
==> This is pretty funny about the King of Sweden (naughty word).
==> This is possibly the worst argument against anarcho-capitalism I have ever read, except maybe the time an outbreak of food poisoning at Jack in the Box a few years ago proved that we needed a federal food inspection agency to keep food safe, since otherwise there would be outbreaks of food poisoning in a laissez-faire world.

==> Mosler vs. Murphy: It’s ON, and will be LIVE at Columbia University on June 3. CNBC’s John Carney will moderate.
==> The caustic von Pepe sends this harsh Selgin comment. Yikes!
==> Haven’t read it yet–econometrics is boring, Barbie–but this paper has arguably made Daniel Kuehn more famous than me. And you guys wondered why I linked to him so much. (Daniel, if this Austrian thing fizzles, please keep me in mind for unwinding the Maiden Lane portfolios.)
