Tune in tomorrow (Saturday) evening – at 8:00pm EDT – to CSPAN2′s Book TV to watch the Independent Institute’s Bob Higgs, Anthony Gregory, and Mary Theroux discuss civil liberties in our age of terrorism .
John Taylor points us to yet more evidence  that the sorry state of today’s labor market in the U.S. is due in significant part to what Bob Higgs calls “regime uncertainty. ” This problem ain’t nuthin’ that no higher aggregate demand is gonna fix.
Temporary help employment increased in July to almost 2.7 million jobs, setting a new all-time record high for temporary and contract workers.
Hmmm…. I wonder what might explain this fact…..
Reality check: Almost no one is eager to kill for his employer or favorite corporation. Millions are eager to kill for their flag and country. Business propaganda is kind of stupid , but academic propaganda is downright scary.
