Undergrads take note!  Steve Horwitz is offering a monetary prize for best essay on a Doonesbury cartoon [1].  (But hurry!)

Jim DeLong’s new book – Ending ‘Big Sis’ - is out.  I read it in manuscript form and recommend it highly [2].  (‘Sis’ is an acronym for “special-interest state.”)

GMU law professor Ilya Somin, over at the Volokh Conspiracy, challenges Peter Orszag’s case for mandatory voting [3].  Be sure also to click on and read the link that Ilya has to Tim Cavanaugh’s essay on this matter over at Reason’s Hit & Run.  (Why are so many people willing to jump at the opportunity to to use force to [try to] make observed patterns of human behavior conform to patterns that that these force-loving people imagine would be better than patterns of human behavior that actually prevail?  Just a question.)

David Henderson, writing here for Defining Ideas, offers an important lesson in fiscal history [4] – one to which Keynesians should pay special attention.  (I especially like David’s debunking of the “pent-up demand” hypothesis for explaining the post-WWII economic boom.  That hypothesis has always struck me as being especially weak, even on Keynesianism’s own grounds.  If I have time, I’ll soon post separately on this issue.)

Walter Grinder (by e-mail) reports that he “found this Spiked article [5] [by Christopher Snowdon] to be a pretty good lesson in the politicization of civil society.”  I agree with Walter.
