David Henderson introduces Richard McKenzie’s new EconLib essay – one that exposes the errors that can be caused by presuming that the task of understanding reality involves little more than sticking with pedestrian observations and prejudices [1].

GMU Econ PhD student Alex Salter ruminates creatively on libertarians and voting [2].  A slice:

History is full of examples of privately supplied roads and education, not to mention more difficult cases. The existence of a collective-action problem is not a sufficient argument for government intervention. To believe otherwise is to ignore the creative and imaginative capacities of individuals engaging in private collective action to overcome collective-action problems.

In my latest column in the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, I plug the Cato Institute’s wonderful new interactive website, Humanprogress.org [3].

David Friedman again puts government priorities in perspective [4].

John Taylor, writing in the Wall Street Journal, explains that the problem is extreme policies rather than extreme people [5].  And Taylor here ably counters Paul Krugman’s disagreement with crucial parts of Taylor’s essay [6].

Wisdom from James Pethokoukis on the alleged “infrastructure crisis. [7]

Private individuals, households, and firms could never get away with behavior so wasteful and perverse as that which government routinely gets away with.  Maxim Lott has more [8].

Richard Rahn writes on the proper role of the judiciary – and that role ain’t simply (as too many conservatives have for too long insisted) to defer to legislatures [9].
