  • The Problem With The “Expert”

    …by “expert” I mean Paul Krugman.  Here is a guy who is, essentially, the economic authority in America.  He teaches at Princeton, won the Nobel Prize in Economics (which is almost as insane as Obama winning the Nobel Prize for anything), and, worst of all, preaches his Keynesian blather all over the New York Times …

  • Progressivism originated in corporatism, not populism.

    Writing on the origins of the Federal Reserve, Murray Rothbard discussed the philosophy which helped produce it and which still dominates our political discourse today:  progressivism.  It’s not a commonly used word in modern politics, though it has of late become more popular as a self-descriptor on the left.  Nonetheless, progressivism is a philosophy of …

  • The American People Smell a Rat…Make That a Superrat.

    The Washington Post published a story yesterday entitled “How the Fed Failed to Tell Obama About the Bonuses,” referring to, of course, the scandal du moment in D.C. The story is interesting, but it’s not news to us; we’ve known for a long time coming that Bernanke and the institutionalized theft he represents have been …
