My colleague Pete Boettke celebrates the achievements and courage of Ludwig von Mises.

Not that any further reasons are needed, but Simon Lester gives us yet one more reason to completely ignore any and all assertions from Trump and his campaign about trade.

And here, Alan Reynolds does the same.  (Trump and his campaign are a grotesque circus of frightening and genuinely dangerous clowns.)

My former student Alex Nowrasteh takes on another manifestation of Trump’s xenophobia.

Steve Landsburg reviews some F.A.Q.s about Trump.

Brittany Hunter smokes the FDA’s officious war on vaping.

George Will correctly notes that James Madison would be surprised – and distressed – at how eagerly members of the U.S. Congress willingly ceded the authority of that institution to agencies of the executive branch.

My Mercatus Center colleague Sherzod Abdukadirov has edited, and contributed to, a new book on the dangers of our ceding to the state the authority to “nudge” us as its operatives deems best.

One of my all-time favorite books is Henry Hazlitt’s too-little-known 1964 volume, The Foundations of Morality.  Here’s its chapter on the social role of manners.
