Contra Krugman, David R. Henderson, Infinite Banking Concept 2 Comments

==> Nelson Nash died in late March. This issue of Bank Notes has some tributes to him, including mine. (In the new Lara-Murphy Report [sub required] I have a longer one.)

==> In the latest Contra Krugman we talk about Krugman going after Stephen Moore. I thought Krugman’s crack about Freedom Fest was pretty low, tell me if you agree.

==> In related news, David R. Henderson has a good piece on the Moore nomination, specifically his gentle yet firm (that makes sense right?) pushback on Mankiw. (Note: Of course I disagree with David about Scott Sumner.)

==> History was made yesterday on Twitter.

    I was actually pushed back in my seat when I came here to send you an email about something and saw your post about the passing of Nelson Nash. I have of course followed your work with Nelson and Carlos around IBS, and I myself an trying to grapple with understanding it…so I have heard your interviews with Nelson, and I can tell from just those that he is intelligent and a faithful follower of Christ.

    I appreciate your comment about knowing he is in a better place….and while I agree, I also feel people like him have been place on this earth for a reason, and the world has lost a special gift with his passing.

    I will say a prayer for Nelson, for his family and for all who have come to know him that they can all appreciate as you that he is in a better place, and that they can continue to learn from his words and actions in his long life.

    God Bless,
