    Myrick Wrong About Trade

    Yesterday, Rep. Sue Myrick joined the long list of politicians who don?t understand basic economics. She not only lashed out at fellow Republican, President Bush, but she also recanted her support of free trade because she said it no longer worked. Free trade is like everything else in life…

    Observation on Gas Prices

    I think the best predictor of gasoline prices in the media. It seems to go like clockwork. Within a few days of the media finally noticing a price spike and running stories about how prices have gone up and are likely to be over $2.00 a gallon by some future…

    Suuu-whee! Trough’s full, lefties!

    The call’s gone out to the far left to try to take advantage of 50 grand UNC gets in “participating in the Kauffman Campuses Initiative, through which the schools can compete for millions of dollars” (my emphasis). Prof. Sarah “the US will absolutely not be a welcome…

    UNC & the working class

    I read an interesting passage in The Daily Tar Heel: [Chancellor] Moeser told his group that if the assignment had any lasting impression, he hopes it will help people put a face on the working class. “I think it is important for all of us to start seeing these…

    Reading at UNC

    This is a bit off topic, but still an interesting question (I think). Speaking of readings at UNC, can anyone suggest good, free-market, academic journals in political science? This might be a tall order, but the ones I’ve looked at so far have been on the other end of the…

    Poor, misunderstood Hitler

    Poor Hitler. He was a radical socialist who had no use whatsoever for the concept of individual rights, and yet modern “liberals” continue to group him with “Right-wing” thinkers. The suggestion that conservatives would be apt to propose Mein Kampf was desirable reading for incoming freshmen at UNC again displays…

    Re: My list of UNC readings

    Actually, assigning Mein Kampf might well have been a better decision for UNC that assigning Barbara Ehrenreich’s book, which is unlikely to stand the test of time as an important and influential work. Hitler’s ravings are, at least, an indispensable window into the soul of an evil soon-to-be tyrant. I…
