My GMU Econ colleague Dan Klein – whose excellent 2012 book, Knowledge and Coordination, is now out in paperback [1]reflects on the value of reflecting deeply on Adam Smith’s moral reasoning [2].  (See also this paper by Dan [3].)

Randal O’Toole explains how today’s fetish for “sustainability” makes our world less sustainable [4].

And yet, as this new and wonderful initiative – HumanProgress.org [5] – from the Cato Institute shows, “the state of humanity is improving.  Fast.”  Indeed it is, despite all the rent-seeking, cronyism, economic ignorance, and hubris-fraught intellectuals forever subjecting innocent people to their schemes for engineering human society into better states.

George Will reports on yet another example of Uncle Sam run amok [6].

Ricardo Hausmann explains the importance of tacit knowledge – and draws policy lessons for immigration and foreign investment [7].  (HT Tyler Cowen)

Over at Division of Labour, Frank Stephenson gently chides Joe Stiglitz for failing to appropriately recognize some contributions of Chicago economics [8].

Wisdom from David Henderson [9].
