Last decade, Slovakia was a reform superstar, shaking off the vestiges of communism with a plethora of very attractive policies—including a flat tax, personal retirement accounts, and spending restraint. ...But in recent years, Slovakia has gradually moved in the wrong direction, which means I...

In Europe, air travel has been a blissful example of how the free market can lower transport costs for consumers. But now, it is coming under fire from environmentalists.

Lawmakers need to realize, though, that the Laffer Curve is very real. They may not like it, but there’s very strong evidence that imposing lots of taxes does not necessarily mean collecting lots of revenue. Especially when tax rates are onerous.

Agricultural special interests try to make it sound as though touching even one farm subsidy—regardless of how unreasonable the subsidy is—will be the end of agriculture as we know it.

Using scare tactics, they will assert wild claims without any support, or they will cherry-pick data to...

What angers me are the legislative and regulatory mandates that force us to buy gasoline that is 10 percent ethanol—even though it gets lower mileage than 100 percent gasoline, brings none of the proclaimed benefits (environmental or otherwise), drives up food prices, and damages small engines....

It feels very uncomfortable to go from a protective and easy school environment where you live without responsibilities to the professional world where you are expected to think, prioritize, and deliver.

I have a general observation about critics of Jordan Peterson that's been growing for a few months. It seems to me that the most common objections to things that he says (yes, usually taken way out of context and cut into soundbite form) are a product of a fundamental misunderstanding of the...

"…the social dimension is also important in politics. That’s the one that the mere left-right scale doesn’t adequately address. So we’ve added one, ranging in positions from extreme authoritarian to extreme libertarian."

A strong financial sector is still necessary for economic growth. Buttonwood is right when he claims that financial markets are not free, which has turned the financial industry into a source of systemic risk. Yet this should justify a true liberalization of the sector, and not more regulations...

I had a moment of clarity last weekend and realized something. The very same folks that love and laud the benefits of “diversity” (while never really explaining or proving what those benefits are) are the same ones who will hector you to death for engaging in what they call “cultural...

The advent of blockchain introduced a new financial instrument, bitcoin, which optimistic investors bid up, until the launch of bitcoin futures allowed pessimists to enter the market, which contributed to the reversal of the bitcoin price dynamics.

Back in the days of Ancient Rome and Greece, the founding fathers of the stoic school of philosophy taught the importance of clear-mindedness and rationalism in the development both of the self and of society. Here a three of these lessons which now, more than ever, need to be relearned.

Atlanta is fast becoming an entrepreneurial hub, where opportunity abounds both for start-ups and individuals with a start-up mindset.

But sometimes the spirit can sag and creativity can stagnate under the daily grind. Once in a while, everybody needs a concentrated dose of inspiration...

As more Chinese have left farms in the countryside to work in factory cities, the suicide rate has plummeted. This may be shocking to many people in rich countries. That is because many people who enjoy post-industrial prosperity worry about “sweatshop” conditions and exploitation in factories....

I’m so excited to present to you the chance to begin exploring the idea of finding a career—and not necessarily one in the field you studied for. On your own terms.

A new report by economist Jonathan Lesser of the Manhattan Institute challenges the conventional wisdom that zero-emission vehicles (ZEVs) are superior to new internal combustion vehicles (ICVs) on environmental grounds. Lesser’s analysis is detailed and quantitative but the basic idea is simple...

The claim that justice is “nothing but the interest of the stronger” is a cynical one, but one Thrasymachus repeats again and again in his long discourse with Socrates. One senses early on that Socrates does not agree with this view of justice, and through a series of questions he traps a “...

From Heifei in China, it traveled over the weekend to Shanghai, then Japan, and landed in Anchorage, Alaska, on Monday morning May 7. As the plane was somewhere in the skies between Japan and Alaska, the price of the order was debited from my credit card.

Bruno Leoni was that rare thing: an Italian scholar who can be considered a founding father of the modern libertarian movement. This is largely because of Freedom and the Law, a 1961 book that had a considerable impact on the thinking of Nobel laureate and Austrian economist F.A. Hayek and on...

In his essay What Is Seen and What Is Not Seen, French economist Frédéric Bastiat explained that all government actions have consequences that are both immediately seen, and also consequences that are unseen. ... In the instance of the new Seattle employment tax, the 'seen' is the revenue...

Thanks to government red tape enacted two years after Amazon went public, mom and pop shareholders likely won’t be a part of the growth of the next Amazon. Ordinary investors savvy enough to invest in Amazon around the time it went public have grown wealthy with the company. As Fortune noted...

This tolerance isn’t a two-way street. Libertarians will let socialists create statist systems inside a free society, but the left won’t allow libertarian outposts in statist societies.

Adam Smith is widely regarded as the "father of economics," but what isn't as widely known is that he never considered himself an economist. He thought of himself as a philosopher. And, indeed, in the tradition of the Scottish Enlightenment, he was one. In the Scottish Enlightenment, study was...

One aspect of this requirement is that because the limit is stated as a dollar amount ($10,000), inflation lowers the real value of that limit year after year. Adjusting for inflation, $10,000 in 1970, when the Act was passed, would be $65,000 today. As inflation continues, the reporting...

Those economic distortions represent a mega-bubble that will pop, just as all the others have, but the results will be far more catastrophic due to the relative size of the problems. With the federal funds rate target still below 2 percent and the signs of a correction already appearing, we may...

Late last week, the Federal Communications Commission—perhaps a bit hopefully—announced that the final repeal of the rules imposed previously by the FCC would take effect on June 11.

But that news was overshadowed by reports from Capitol Hill that opponents of repeal had enough support to...

According to The New York Times, app-based rideshare services are a serious problem in need of a regulatory solution. While their editorial is about New York City, the fallacious thinking behind it is universal. Most people who have used Uber or Lyft might wonder what exactly the problem is,...

The Commission estimates the average cost of a new single-family home will increase by $9,500 but that utility bills will decline by roughly twice as much over the period of a 30-year mortgage. Why not let consumers decide whether the projected future savings justify the immediate up-front costs...

Recent decades have seen much fewer of the listees being from the lucky sperm club, and many more of them there because of their own hard work.

We should be able to identify racists and label them as such, but when people like Sam Harris and Ben Shapiro get labeled as racists, it allows actual racists to cruise under the radar. We lose the power to identify and label the actual racists.

Since Toys ‘R’ Us declared bankruptcy and announced that it will be closing all of its stores, it has seemed like no retail store is safe. Are people nowadays too lazy and obsessed with convenience to appreciate the inherent goodness of traditional brick-and-mortar stores?

Just like last year, the CEO-to-worker pay ratio reported by the AFL-CIO gets my annual “Biggest Blindly Accepted Statistical Fairy Tale of the Year Award.” Well no, it’s actually a tie with the gender wage gap myth and the incessantly repeated “77 cents on the dollar” statistical falsehood....
