Open Borders
Many left libertarians demand open borders. Nations have no significance, they tell us. To think otherwise, to recognize any limits to immigration, arbitrarily restricts people’s liberty. Those of us who think otherwise, they say, are no better than fascists. Joe Salerno’s brilliant and comprehensive article, “Mises on Nationalism, the Right to Self-Determination, and the Problem of Immigration” shows that Mises rejected the extreme anti-nationalist, open borders position. As Salerno shows, Mise

March 18, 1968 - "Good Money Is Coined Freedom" Speech by William McChesney Martin, 1968
Today, we have a speech by the Chairman of the Federal Reserve, William McChesney Martin, given on March 18, 1968. At this time, the Bretton Woods era was coming to an end, not because of some inherent problem, but because those in charge of maintaining it (including Martin) really didn't know what they were doing. It was the simplest thing in the world -- a time of peace and prosperity worldwide -- but they were not up to the task. click here for "Good Money Is Coined Freedom," by William McC

The Best Way to Compete with China Is to Free the Economy
As things stand, China holds around 20 percent, or $ 1.2 trillion, of outstanding US credit market debt. This is the result of decades of “symbiotic interaction”, if one follows the hidden message that is embedded in the neologism “Chinamerica”: Americans consume more goods from China than they export to China, and the Chinese are willingly financing the US trade deficit with their “over-savings” by holding dollars and US dollar-denominated debt. In 2017 alone, it amounted to $ 375 billion.For a

Benjamin Constant
On the Liberty of the Ancients Compared with that of the Moderns
"He loved liberty as other men love power," was the judgment passed on Benjamin Constant by a 19th-century admirer.His great public concern, all throughout his adult life, was the attainment of a free society, especially for his adopted country, France; and if a (by no means uncritical) French commentator exaggera

Where’s The Magic Formula
(This item originally appeared at Forbes.com on March 3, 2018.) https://www.forbes.com/sites/nathanlewis/2018/03/02/wheres-the-magic-formula/#3a4e6da97a01 For some time, I’ve argued that a lot of economic policymaking boils down to the Magic Formula, which is: Low Taxes and Stable Money. There is more to it than this, of course; but if you don’t get the big stuff right, the little stuff won’t matter. So, get the big stuff right, first. Conversely, when a country runs into trouble, you can usual

Four Percent 10-year Note Yield Will Be a Floor No...
The two most important factors in determining the level of sovereign bond yields are the credit and inflation risks extant within a nation. When determining a country’s ability to service its debt investors must analyze not only the absolute debt level, but also the ratios of debt and deficits to GDP. In addition, the current rate of inflation must also be viewed within the context of debt in order to make an accurate assumption as to the level of future inflation. When analyzing historical meas

Village of Widows
Canada has become a leader in the movement against the racism practiced against indigenous peoples that has so long been common practice in much of the world. Is it possible that Ottawa will really follow the lead of Alberta and other provinces by recognizing the rights given to aboriginal people in the Constitution without hassle? Such an act would shift cases out of courts into nation-on-nation negotiations. It’s taken 36 years since repatriation of our constitut

  Better than the alternative 
As people age we sometimes hear them say it beats the alternative, which is usually left unsaid.It’s an old joke technology aims to eliminate by treating aging as a disease and curing it. But there’s another sense in which the alternative is assumed to be far worse than the present condition.  I’m referring to the type of government almost all people live under, which is the nation state.  As bad as states might be — we’ve all been taught — it certainly beats the alternative, anarchy.   R

Pivotal Events
Perspective "Rational Exuberance". We started using the phrase in December 2016, because of the new Pro-Business Administration. On the big technical surges, we dropped the "Rational". The DJIA zoom has reached a Weekly RSI of 92. As noted last week, the highest reached for the Nasdaq in the Dot-Com mania was 84. Also, the Fibonacci has reached a possible target, built upon the major swings since the panic ended in March 2009. Clearly, "Irrational Exuberance". The NYXBT (NYSE Bitcoin Index) soar

RIPPLE’S TULIP BUBBLE: May It Rest In Peace….
Unfortunately for crypto investors “HODLING” onto Ripple, their huge gains have been wiped out in just the past few weeks.  While Ripple’s price surged to massive percentage gains in a short period, it came down just as fast.  Unbelievably, Ripple’s price surged from less than a penny in March 2017 to a peak of $2.81 on Jan 1st, 2018.Ripple’s stunning price increase would have made investors during Holland’s 17th Century Tulip Bubble, quite envious.  Ripple’s price increased a staggering 46,700%

Selco: Who Survives and Who Dies When the SHTF
This article was originally published by Daisy Luther at The Organic Prepper Did you ever wonder about the differences in how people behave in a crisis? Why some people survive and some people die? Are there characteristics that we can nurture now in good times that could help see us through bad times? I’d talked with Selco previously about who lives and who doesn’t in a long-term emergency, and a great determiner is a flexible mindset. In this interview, we go deeper into who can withstand the

I am guilty, But not in the way that you think. I should have recognized my duty earlier; I should have more sharply called out evil, as evil; I suppressed my judgement far too long. I did warn, But not nearly enough, and certainly not clearly enough; And today I know the nature of my guilt, and my obligation.

Cryptocurrency Developments So Far in 2018
The first two weeks of 2018 have been quite eventful for the cryptocurrency community.  There have been a great many developments in terms of the regulatory environment.  Also, a new scaling solution for the second biggest coin by market cap may be leading to its meteoric rise over the past year. Increased legislation and regulation One likely reason why crypto, in general, has been pumping lately has to do with increased regulatory clarity.  There have been statements made by governments and fi

  One-year score card for Trump
We understand our politicians to be human, with much that that implies. In a democracy, politics is a competitive business, which means that generally well-balanced individuals tend to succeed, while those who are obviously unbalanced do not. And as for political power corrupting individuals, that is normally limited by the obligation to periodically seek an electoral mandate. That, at least is the theory, but in late-2016, the election of President-elect Donald Trump caused us all to question t

  Donald Trump – Modern Day Walpole 
“Hatred of Walpole was almost the only feeling which was common to them. On this one point they concentrated their whole strength. With gross ignorance, or gross dishonesty, they represented the Minister as the main grievance of the state. His dismissal, his punishment, would prove the certain cure for all the evils which the nation suffered. What was to be done after his fall, how misgovernment was to be prevented in the future, were questions to which there were as many answers as there were n
