On his first morning as President Trump’s national security adviser, in 2017, H. R. McMaster invited me to drop by his office.

Friday, October 23, 2020

[Subscription Required] In 1906, Werner Sombart, the German economist, explained America’s resistance to socialism in five words, “roast beef and apple pie,” his shorthand for affluence. John Cochrane of Stanford’s Hoover Institution, notes that in the 2008 financial crisis, the Federal Reserve launched “creditor bailouts, propping up asset prices to keep investors from losing money, buying unprecedented assets.” The risk of moral hazard — incentives for reckless behavior — is obvious.
