Stuart Anderson sensibly proposes mandatory national-service for New York Times columnists . (Why is it that so many people, upon noticing – or imagining that they notice – a “social” problem, immediately jump to the conclusion that deploying government-directed force is the best way to “solve” that problem?

In this five-minute-plus video – from the Institute for Humane Studies’s LearnLiberty project – I challenge Robert Reich’s recent assertion that the gains from America’s economic growth during the past 30 years have gone almost exclusively to the rich .
