The State Of America’s Disunion

by Michael Spence, David Bradyvia Project Syndicate
Monday, November 23, 2020

The 2020 US presidential election followed a pattern very similar to the contest in 2016, with narrow margins in a few key counties determining the outcome in battleground states. And the record-breaking turnout on both sides was a sign not of a healthy democracy but of an anxious one.

Dr. Scott Atlas Responds To The Stanford Faculty Senate Resolution

by Scott W. Atlasvia The Stanford Review
Monday, November 23, 2020

I was disappointed to learn that the Faculty Senate of Stanford University on November 19, 2020 adopted a resolution criticizing my work for the United States government. We all wish to guide our nation through this pandemic with the best advice and knowledge that we can bring to bear. It is for this reason that I accepted the request of the President of the United States to serve as an advisor since August of this year. I have been honored to serve our country during these difficult months for our nation and the world.

Symmetric Non-Discrimination

by David R. Hendersonvia EconLog
Sunday, May 5, 2019

I visited the American Institute for Economic Research (AIER) in Great Barrington, MA a little over a week ago and met Jeffrey Tucker for my first time. He’s the editorial director there. We got talking about his early life in Lubbock, TX and he told me an interesting story about how his grandfather, to avoid discrimination against himself for a physical problem, started serving an underserved and probably discriminated-against community whose members didn’t care about this physical problem. So each sided acted to deal with people who were discriminated against (assuming his grandfather’s fear of discrimination was justified.)

Defenders Of Capitalism Agree With The Left On Society's Problems. On The Solutions — Not So Much

quoting Niall Fergusonvia CNN
Sunday, May 5, 2019

The Milken Institute Global Conference, the annual talkfest for the financial elite at a posh hotel in Beverly Hills, is usually shot through with references to lifting up the downtrodden and making capital work for the common good. This year, however — perhaps brought on by the election of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and the increasingly leftist tenor of the 2020 Democratic presidential field — there was also a hint of panic.

Housing Market And Bank Lending Effects On Young Firms And Local Economies

by Steven J. Davis, John Haltiwangervia VoxEu.org (Centre for Economic Policy Research)
Sunday, May 5, 2019

Young firms live a financially precarious life, often dependent on self-funding tied to the value of the business owners’ homes. This column uses data from the US to show that housing market fluctuations play a major role in driving medium-term changes in young firm employment shares. As young firms hire a disproportionate number of younger and less-educated workers, these groups are disproportionately affected by house price fluctuations.

A Strong Defense Of Barr

featuring Jack Goldsmithvia Outside The Beltway
Sunday, May 5, 2019

In recent weeks, we have offered some strong critiques of Attorney General William Barr’s handling of the public release of the Mueller report. Most notably, Steven Taylor asserted that, “Donald Trump finally has the AG he wanted back when he was railing at Jeff Sessions. He has a toady who will use the office to further Trump’s own political needs rather than act as law enforcement.” And I asserted, “The attorney general hasn’t said a single thing that wasn’t technically true about the Mueller report. But he was dishonest.”

Thoughts On Barr And The Mueller Report

by Jack Goldsmithvia Lawfare
Saturday, May 4, 2019

I’ve been in a cave for several weeks crashing to complete my new book, and am only now emerging to read Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report and the commentary on it. I’ll hopefully have more to say on the report, especially on its legal analysis of criminal obstruction of justice as applied to the president. But for now I want to comment on the reaction to Attorney General William Barr’s handling of the report in his March 24 letter and his May 1 testimony. It seems over the top to me.
