  • ‘It’s Cute’: Chinese College Students on Americans’ Self-Conception as Saviour of the World

  • Global Free Markets vs. China

    Yesterday, Google decided to shut down its Chinese search page after a frustrating Chinese government continued to censor Google search results and hack into Google servers.

  • Our Foreign Policy Needs Health Care

    Although Democrats have made quite a big deal over the socialized mess dubbed “Obamacare”  and claimed it as a distinction between themselves and the neoconservatives, this showcase of glorified Keynesianism is nothing more than a distraction from the foreign policy mess that Obama refuses to acknowledge or clean up. For the next few weeks, the …

  • Schiff Destroys Krugman

    Usually Peter Schiff rambles in his video blogs, but in this one he says so much and utterly destroys Paul Krugman (not that its too hard). Its unfortunate that even though Peter Schiff is consistently right about stocks and economic policy, he is still ignored.
