by Henri J. Barkeyvia The Caravan
Thursday, March 21, 2019

“L'enfer est pavé de bonnes intentions” (the road to hell is paved with good intentions) goes a French expression.

As a result, U.S. decision makers, thinkers and certainly the public at large are increasingly expressing their exasperation with that region.

“To understand Gavin Newsom is to appreciate what it is to be a connected, metrosexual, forever-in-search-of-enlightenment son of the San Francisco Bay Area – stylistically and intellectually. … Now that Newson is governor, he can export that worldview beyond California’s boundaries. That could spell trouble come the time Democrats have to sell a more moderate persona in America’s swing states.”

Verizon's Unaccountability

by David R. Hendersonvia EconLog
Wednesday, June 28, 2017

As regular readers of this blog probably know, I am a strong believer in the importance of commercial accountability.

So, for example, when a major firm makes a billing error, which, in my experience, doesn't happen often, it is relatively straightforward to call the firm's customer service number and get the bill altered.
