Economist and Historian has a new book, Rollback: Repealing Big Government Before the Fiscal Collapse.

In it he addresses:

  • Could we survive without the welfare state?
  • Was the Industrial Revolution a disaster for workers and an evidence of the wickedness of the free market?
  • The market vs. global poverty
  • How the market, in spite (not because) of government, leads to higher living standards for everyone
  • How the market leads to improved working conditions and does away with child labor
  • Federal education programs: a critique
  • Doesn't Sweden prove a large welfare state is compatible with lasting prosperity?
  • If government shrinks, won't big business fill the void and oppress the public via predatory pricing?
  • Why it's impossible to design a wealth-redistribution program that does not cause net harm
  • The truth about "affordable housing" programs
  • Iceland and the financial crisis: a case study of free markets run amok?
  • California energy "deregulation" – proof that free markets don't work?
  • Is the Savings & Loan (S&L) crisis evidence of the failure of free markets?
  • The real record of Sarbanes-Oxley
  • The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and workplace safety
  • The Food and Drug Administration
  • Don't we need to make an exception for government science funding?
  • A primer on the War on Drugs
  • Obamacare: the problems and the solution
  • Why "stimulus" programs make things worse
  • How prudential regulation contributed to the financial crisis
  • Are some firms "too big to fail"?
  • Did the "repeal" of Glass-Steagall contribute to the financial crisis?
  • The real story of "deregulation" and the financial crisis
  • Is Paul Krugman right to absolve Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac of blame?
  • The Pentagon's impact on the US economy
  • Has the Federal Reserve really made the US economy more stable, as so many proponents claim?
  • What caused the bank panics of the 19th century? Are they evidence of the need for a central bank?
  • The separation of money and state
  • Do we need the Fed to protect us from deflation?
  • Regulation as an anticompetitive device

Mine's in the mail. I dare any progressive on this board to read it.

Trump Could Learn From the "Rat Park" Experiment

Even as Donald Trump's surrogates are re-tweeting photoshopped images of Hillary Clinton in blackface, Trump himself is trying to win the black vote by simply asking black Americans "What the hell do you have to lose?!"

And in response to the news that NBA star Dwyane Wade's cousin had been shot in Chicago, he sent out two tweets talking about how bad the crime rate is getting.
