‘Dream-Team’ Redux?

by Victor Davis Hansonvia National Review
Friday, December 6, 2019

There was a lot of pre-hearing hype about the Democrats’ supposedly stellar academic experts, sort of analogous to the giddiness about the “dream team,” “all-stars,” and “hunter-killer” legal eagles that Robert Mueller supposedly had assembled to pick apart the Trump carrion — and they likewise proved a complete dud.

Whom And What To Blame For Kamala Harris’ Collapse

by Bill Whalenvia Forbes
Thursday, December 5, 2019

I purposely waited a couple of days before opining on the demise of California Sen. Kamala Harris’ presidential campaign for two reasons: I wanted to see how she’d spin her failure; and I wanted to see what if any impact her decision had on the remainder of the presidential field.

Presidential Candidates Are Rarely Judged On Their Knowledge Of Foreign Policy

by Markos Kounalakisvia Miami Herald
Thursday, December 5, 2019

Presidential candidates are rarely judged on their knowledge of foreign policy. They’re often governors or from states where engagement in world affairs is limited to the trade promotion of state products or produce. They’re both salespeople and promoters of their states’ workers, goods and environment, pitching their local and regional corporate interests in global markets.

The Assault On Wealth

by David R. Hendersonvia EconLog
Thursday, December 5, 2019

As noted above, I don’t accept that behind every fortune, or even most fortunes, is a great crime. Interestingly also, neither does the main economist who got the ball rolling on wealth taxes earlier this decade. The economist who, more than any other, made attacks on the wealthy more generally respected, is Frenchman Thomas Piketty.

Germany’s Crisis Has Been Averted. But At What Cost?

quoting Timothy Garton Ashvia The Washington Post
Friday, December 6, 2019

What a way to climb down. And how very German. Having promised revolution one week, Germany’s Social Democrats called it off the next, hoping that nobody would take much notice. As so often in contemporary German politics, rupture was averted for the sake of stability, open conflict exchanged for suppressed frustration, movement foregone for stasis.

EPA, The Nature Of Regulation, And Democracy

by John H. Cochrane featuring Richard A. Epsteinvia Grumpy Economist
Saturday, April 28, 2018

My Hoover colleague Richard Epstein posted a revealing essay on the nature of environmental regulation last week, with environmental regulation as a particular example. The contrast with "Environmental Laws Under Siege: Here is why we have them" in New York Times and the New Yorker's Scott Pruitt's Dirty Politics is instructive.

On America's Impending Revolution

quoting Victor Davis Hansonvia The Hill
Saturday, April 28, 2018

When something “revolves”, it comes back to the same place from which it started. A “six-shooter” is a gun. Its cartridge chamber revolves back to where it started. Aristotle’s six-fold classification of political regimes from monarchy to aristocracy to polity to democracy to oligarchy to tyranny is in effect a theory of revolution, of regime changes from good to bad and back again.
