Greg Mankiw Responds

by David R. Hendersonvia EconLog
Tuesday, February 5, 2019

Last week, I challenged Harvard economics professor Greg Mankiw’s interpretation of Mr. Potter in the classic movie It’s a Wonderful Life. Greg has responded by email and given me permission to quote it. (By the way, he was a junior economist when I was a senior economist with President Reagan’s Council of Economic Advisers and, although we see each other rarely, get along well. He’s a genuinely good guy and so none of my criticism reflects any animus towards him.)

by David R. Hendersonvia EconLog
Monday, February 4, 2019

President Trump is set to deliver his second State of the Union Address. Pundits are already guessing what will happen. Will the hour-long speech focus entirely on the nation’s southern border?

Customs Officer Discovers Effects Of International Trade

by David R. Hendersonvia EconLog
Sunday, February 3, 2019

About a week after I was made a Commissioner of the Customs, upon looking over the list of prohibited goods, (which is hung up in every Customhouse and which is well worth your considering) and upon examining my own wearing apparel, I found, to my great astonishment, that I had scarce a stock, a cravat, a pair of ruffles, or a pocket handkerchief which was not prohibited to be worn or used in G. Britain.
