Yikes I’ve been traveling lately and am way behind with some of these…
==> Niels van der Linden replies to my comment on his critique of Rothbard.
==> Richard Ebeling (my teacher in undergrad) reflects on the Great Society.
==> Somebody writing for Jim Cramer’s (?) website says I am a leading singer in the Austrian doomsday chorus. Bob Roddis, if you’re reading, please save this one for when the market crashes.
==> A reader (sorry I forget who at this point) sends me this discussion of outrageous police deception in manipulating confessions from people. Seriously, these are eye-opening.
==> For those who pine for a revenue-neutral carbon tax reform, look at what’s actually happening in California.
==> I discuss the minimum wage and other issues with Tom Woods.
==> I discuss the world’s 85 richest people with Scott Horton.
==> I am not being sarcastic, I feel bad for Tyler Cowen. On the one hand, he is constantly criticized for being a “sell out” by one group of libertarians, while in the comments at his blog people routinely denounce his free-market dogmatism (seriously). He is well-versed in all kinds of economic theory, and yet has to spend time arguing that demand curves slope downward. No wonder he has an eating disorder.
==> I may have lost an inflation bet, but at least I never lost a radiation bet. Stephen Hawking better hope Brad DeLong doesn’t find out about this…
