Rob Bradley’s discussion – over at EconLib – of Enron is not to be missed.

Steve Horwitz properly tries to nip in the bud, before it goes viral, a piece of misinformation about the Fed.

Speaking of central banks, here’s John Cochrane’s clear-eyed take on the Fed.

Bjorn Lomborg challenges Paul Krugman on climate science.

A graph (via Greg Mankiw) both disheartening and frightening.

George Will on modern “Progressives.

David Henderson discusses an economic historian whose work deserves your close attention: the late Stanley Lebergott.  (Lebergott’s 1996 book, Pursuing Happinessis among my very favorite works in economic history.  Alas, though, I’ve misplaced my much-marked-up copy; I’ve been searching for it, without success, for well over a year.)

Tyler Cowen on the gold standard.  (For the record, I’m more favorably disposed to a gold standard than is Tyler.)
