    Ya’ll can have Goodnight, we’ll take Wal-Mart

    This piece in the Boston Globe highlights the thorn in the side of protectionists clamoring for middle to lower income voter support against free trade: Wal-Mart. As 24 yr. old Wal-mart customer Jessie Lawrence put it: “What else is there? Where else can I save $150 or more?”…

    Democratic National Committee credit cards

    What happens when the Democratic National Committee sends an application for one of its credit cards to a resolutely free-market, Big Government-hating economist?
