The Rise of the Conservative Legal Movement

Thoughts On Steven M. Teles, "The Rise of the Conservative Legal Movement"

Orin Kerr, over at the Volokh Conspiracy, reviews the new book, and highlights the origins of the libertarian George Mason University Law School.

The book has been added to my bibliography and the index for George Mason University.

Ron Paul Is Crazy

Ron Paul Is Crazy
A YouTube video from WebPundit points out why Ron Paul is an unrealistic candidate: because he offends almost everybody in one way or another.

In the Topical Issues category of the main page.

As Ron Paul resumes his lowly status as false-flag Republican congressman and thus falls off the election radar, I'll move the links about him to a separate index and off the main page.

Information and Economics: A Critique of Hayek

Information and Economics: A Critique of Hayek
Outlines Hayek's false assumptions, and points out problems of market capitalist economic miscalculation.

Libertarians frequently resort to the "socialist calculation problem" as a blanket denial that socialism could work well. Yet we are surrounded with counterexamples, such as the decentralized socialist public school system, or highly centralized capitalist enterprises such as WalMart. This critique helps us understand why Hayek's arguments should be considered little better than propaganda now.

Placed in the Austrian Economics index.
