Arnold Kling offers some thoughts on Deirdre McCloskey’s recent talk at Cato.

My old friend (Wow!  It’s been nearly 33 years now) Roger Koppl wishes for the impossible – namely, a responsible and wise Congress that has the freedom of the American people foremost in mind.

I’m delighted that Art Carden, over at EconLog, supplies this link to an ungated version of his review of Deirdre McCloskey’s and Stephen Ziliak’s The Cult of Statistical Significance.

My Mercatus Center colleague Sherzod Abdukadirov writes about some unintended consequences of safety regulation.

Bryan Caplan debates the question: Does democracy work?

Steve Landsburg does Keynesian Macro 101. :-)  In my view, though, even graduate-level Keynesianism is highly implausible, if for no reason other than that it rests – apparently without its modern adherents recognizing the fact – on the necessary (although not sufficient), yet wildly unrealistic, assumption of what Hayek called “full unemployment.”

John Taylor directs us to a wise paper by Raghu Rajan.
