by John H. Cochrane via The Grumpy Economist
Thursday, July 18, 2019

I wrote a Wall Street Journal Oped on the gold standard, partly in response to last week's Oped by James Grant (whose "PhD standard" is a great quip) and Greg Yp's excellent column on Judy Shelton and gold.

by Milton Friedmanvia PolicyEd

Milton Friedman explains that in case after case, government programs adopted for good purposes have had the opposite effects. Federal programs on housing, schooling, health care, and job training have created as many problems as they have solved. There are almost no exceptions of governmental programs that have achieved their initial stated goals.

Friday Short Cuts

quoting Victor Davis Hansonvia Patriot Post
Friday, July 19, 2019
Upright: “These arguments over our past are really over the present — and especially the future. If progressives and socialists can at last convince the American public that their country was always hopelessly flawed, they can gain power to remake it based on their own interests. These elites see Americans not as unique individuals but as race, class and gender collectives, with shared grievances from the past that must be paid out in the present and the future. We’ve seen something like this fight before, in 1861 — and it didn’t end well.” —Victor Davis Hanson

Hoover Institution fellow Victor Davis Hanson discusses his recent book The Second World Wars, which examines how combat unfolded in the air, at sea, and on land to show how distinct conflicts among disparate combatants coalesced into one interconnected global war. Drawing on 3,000 years of military history, Victor Davis Hanson argues that despite its novel industrial barbarity, neither the war’s origins nor its geography were unusual.

“The Fall Will Probably Kill You”

quoting Victor Davis Hansonvia Ricochet
Monday, November 6, 2017

My feelings about President Trump are — complicated. But of this I am sure: Trump has to be given every chance and every support that the Republican Party can muster. It is not “normalizing bad behavior” to support President Trump or to, if not mute, restrain criticism. This is particularly so when the focus of the criticism is style and character, not policy.

The Migrant Crisis Upended Europe

quoting Josef Joffevia Gatestone Institute
Monday, November 6, 2017

A few weeks after Germany opened its borders to over a million refugees from the Middle East, Africa and Asia, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán said that the migration crisis would "destabilize democracies". He was labelled a demagogue and a xenophobe. Two years later, Orbán has been vindicated. As Politico now explains, "[M]ost EU leaders echo the Hungarian prime minister" and the Hungarian PM can now claim that "our position is slowly becoming the majority position".

Price Gouging Is Fine But Humans Are Better

by David R. Hendersonvia EconLog
Monday, November 6, 2017

When we economists argue against laws that prohibit price gouging during emergencies, we point out, correctly, that such laws create shortages, reduce the incentive to conserve, and discourage suppliers from supplying more. This month's Econlib Feature Article author, economist Michael L. Davis, agrees with that.
