George Leef writes about the Model-T and the Tesla [2].

I apologize for only just now finding Mark Perry’s initial and excellent response to Robert Reich’s horrendously reasoned case for raising the minimum wage to $15 per hour [3]. The video in which Reich presents this case is the intellectual equivalent of a video of someone who is widely believed to be a professional and competent biologist arguing that the earth is 4,000 years old.

Speaking of Mark Perry, he explains here a point that I believe deserves much more attention – namely, the increasing inability of conventional tools of national income accounting to measure changes in economic activity [4].  (See also Diane Coyle’s excellent 2014 book, GDP [5].)

George Will rightly laments the infantilization – and accompanying criminalization – of American society [6].

Starting at around the 25:45 mark in this video is my presentation at last month’s wonderful Liberty Forum in Porto Alegre, Brazil [7].  (HT Rodrigo Carpes)

David Henderson is understandably unimpressed by the economics of the U.S. Congress’s newest economist-member [8].

Tim Carney reports on a superb example of a bootleggers-and-Baptist coalition: big pharma and feminists [9].

Cato’s Chris Edwards discusses Amtrak’s budget [10].
