Tomorrow (Sunday) I’ll be a guest on The Bob Zadek Show out of the Bay Area (9am PDT; 12pm EDT).  (The show is broadcast on San Francisco’s KKSF 910 AM.)  The topic will center around the new book I edited and published by the Fraser Institute, What America’s Decline in Economic Freedom Means for Entrepreneurship and Prosperity.

Speaking of this new book, my frequent co-author and former student Liya Palagashvili is interviewed on the radio regarding the book, to which she contributed a splendid chapter.

Jason Kuznicki explores that connection between choice and happiness.

Citing the work of regular Cafe patron Jon Murphy, Mark Perry explains that increased imports and higher trade deficits in the U.S. – that is, more valuable stuff for Americans to consume and increased investment in the U.S. – are not economic bads.

Speaking of Jon Murphy, he uses here the occasion of Hayek’s 116th birthday to reflect on minimum-wage legislation.

David Henderson explores the contours of free speech.

The more one learns about the history of labor unions, especially the history of their political influence, the more one is repulsed by them.

The poor in America are getting richer.

Bob Murphy has some informative fun with people who do not understand trade.  (Bob’s post reminds me of this Cafe Hayek post from 2005.)
