Michael Grossberg On Libertarian Futurism And Pretty Much Everything

by David R. Hendersonvia EconLog
Thursday, September 12, 2019

I’m not big on libertarian futurism or on science fiction. I’m not bragging. On the contrary, I think it’s due to my lack of imagination.

Democracy Is Fighting For Its Life

featuring Larry Diamondvia Foreign Policy
Tuesday, September 10, 2019

It is common today to speak of a crisis of democracy, but such language underrates the challenge at hand. American democracy faces not one, but three distinct and connected crises. There is an ongoing assault on democratic norms and values, which has led to the coarsening of the U.S. social fabric and the erosion of unspoken, but vitally important, norms that provide the guardrails of self-government.

Two weeks from today, I start teaching Economics 1, Stanford’s introductory economics course, and the namesake of this blog and my twitter account.   I am looking forward to it, and for the same three reasons that I gave years ago when I started teaching the course: (1) “I love to teach.” (2) “I love to do economic research” and teaching is “a natural extension of research.” (3) “I love economic policy—the application of economics to government as well as to decision-making in business.”

Monday, September 9, 2019

In an environment with stable inflation, the yield curve should typically be inverted. Long term investors care about money when they retire, not next month. Most investors are long-term. If inflation is steady, long-term bonds are a safer way to save money for the long run.
