Arnold Kling offers some thoughts on Deirdre McCloskey’s recent talk at Cato [2].

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 [3].

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  [4]The Cult of Statistical Significance [4].

My Mercatus Center colleague Sherzod Abdukadirov writes about some unintended consequences of safety regulation [5].

Bryan Caplan debates the question: Does democracy work? [6]

Steve Landsburg does Keynesian Macro 101 [7]. :-)  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 [8].”

John Taylor directs us to a wise paper by Raghu Rajan [9].
