The $60K Rafting Guide

by David R. Hendersonvia EconLog
Wednesday, March 27, 2019

Like the students in Jared Lucas’s class, I have been thinking a lot about Bryan Caplan’s insights on schooling in The Case Against Education. I got to about page 120 and then my plane landed, but I read it the way I read every book I write a review on: every page and every footnote.

featuring John B. Taylorvia The Utah Statesman
Wednesday, March 27, 2019

As part of an event co-sponsored by the Jon M. Huntsman School of Business and the Center for Growth and Opportunity, John Taylor, economics professor at Stanford University, spoke Tuesday on the future of economic policy in the United States. Taylor, Stanford economics professor and senior fellow in economics at the Hoover Institution, rejected The Economist’s interpretation of the US economy in their July 19, 2014 story, “America’s lost oomph,” in which the cover depicts an American jockey on top of a turtle. Rather, Taylor said, the economy could be likened to a caged eagle, and policy reform could cut open the cage for us to see better growth.

Ryan's "Roadmap for America's Future," first introduced in 2008 and later more fully flushed out, detailed the Wisconsin congressman's policy vision for a future that included structural reforms — including means-testing, introduction of competitive market forces, and optionality for privatization measures — to America's bankrupting entitlement programs of Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security.
