One of the most economically uninformed ideas to gain currency of late is that of “peak oil [1]” – a notion built on the solid-as-styrofoam idea that the supply of oil is mostly a matter of physics and other physical sciences.  In fact, the supply of oil is a mostly a matter of economics, and anyone with a decent understanding of economics (especially from a Julian Simon-esque perspective [2]) never gave, and will never give, an iota of credence to the peak-oil superstition.  Mary Perry has an update [3].

Richard Epstein is not amused by Grand Theft Treasury [4].

Three items from Marginal Revolution: First, Tyler points us to research on health insurance and the supply of labor [5]; second, Alex discusses an interesting U.S. case involving the Takings clause and homeowners’ associations [6]; and third, Alex writes wisely about shadow banking and Glass-Steagall [7].

Shikha Dalmia writes more about immigration (and emigration) restrictionists [8].

Jeff Miron weighs in on state- and local-government pension liabilities [9].  (Or, contra Jeff, maybe these liabilities aren’t such a problem after all: “we” owe them to “ourselves.”  Voila!  Problem solved!)

My colleague Pete Boettke points us to a new collection – edited by Roger Frantz and Robert Leeson – of essays on Hayek and behavioral economics [10].

Richard Rahn writes about taxes [11].
