I very much like the Washington Post‘s (relatively) new columnist, Charles Lane. Here’s his column from today . And here’s an especially nice one from last month; it’s entitled “Collective Action is Overrated .”
Regular Cafe patrons know that I (and Russ, too) often disagree with Tyler Cowen. But having known Tyler for 32 years, and been his colleague now for 12, I know better than to accuse him of failing to understand some argument in any canon of economics. Paul Krugman doesn’t know Tyler as well as I do . Pity, that.
49 years and one day ago, The Beatles first performed in Washington, DC. Here’s a video . And 50 years and one day ago, The Beatles recorded one of my all-time favorite songs , “Please Please Me.” This song, in my opinion, is the rock’n'roll equivalent of Beethoven’s 3rd symphony: each composition brought music forward by a giant leap. The Fab Four perform it starting at the 19:30 mark.

 In my latest column in the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, I explain why I believe that one of the market’s worst failures is the silence it maintains as it works: http://triblive.com/opinion/donaldboudreaux/3429514-74/market-entry-keyless#axzz2KJFyBYzS
