Jeffrey Tucker – rightly – has serious issues with the lawsuit recently filed by the Department of Housing and Urban Development against Facebook.

Simon Lester – rightly – objects to Elizabeth Warren’s economic nationalism.

Several weeks ago Bjorn Lomborg – rightly – argued in favor of free trade.

Alex Nowrasteh – rightly – is unimpressed by Reihan Salam’s case against immigration. Here’s Alex’s conclusion:

The subtitle of Salam’s book is: A Son of Immigrants Makes the Case Against Open Borders. Being the son of immigrants does not give one license to cherry-pick research, produce unfounded predictions of a looming civil war, and make a generally inconsistent and self-contradictory argument. If anything, Salam’s book is evidence that the second generation assimilates just fine into a political culture that rewards identity over logical and reasoned argument supported by evidence. If that’s the result of assimilation, perhaps we’d all be better off with a little less of it.

Shikha Dalmia – rightly – finds much fault in David Frum’s case for further restrictions on immigration into the United States.

Mark Perry – rightly – quotes Ross McKitrick on why he, McKitrick, abhors Earth Day.

I look forward – I believe rightly – to reading my colleague Tyler Cowen’s forthcoming book Big Business: A Love Letter to an American Anti-Hero.
