President Donald Trump has abandoned the foreign policy on which he ran to move America closer to war in Syria. Taking the U.S. into another tragic Middle Eastern conflict would sacrifice American lives and wealth while making the country less secure.

The Royal Navy’s pay truly was contemptible. Except for those who were independently wealthy, the uncertain prospect of prize money was a captain’s only prospect for financial security. The British had to trust in fate and their captains’ skill for the encouraging effects of prize money, but it...

"Unfortunately, tales of Robin Hood have been passed down from generation to generation, yet very few have stopped to think about the what they mean."

It's an international issue that politicians don't listen to the people. But one of the first things a statist will say in response is that "the same thing happens in business. Many big companies don't listen to their customers, either." They're right. But the difference comes in what happens...

Nowadays, simply invoking the word freedom in mixed-company earns you rolled eyes and inaudible sighs. To those scoffing elitists I say: I’m done apologizing for my love of liberty. And FEEcon is unapologetically pro-liberty.

Our memory of manufacturing’s glorious past ignores just how much those who benefited from it wanted their kids and grandkids to escape it altogether.

New York is adopting free tuition under the Excelsior Scholarship. “Excelsior” is a reference to the state’s motto, and supposedly how lawmakers envision the recipients. But if students will be reaching “still higher,” they will do so while standing on the backs of others.

Interventionism creates new dislocations that seem to cry out for further interventions, which don't actually solve the problem. Free markets make corrections in real time, which can be painful in the short term, but most beneficial in the long term.

Those who grew up with the ability to block people on facebook and who were never allowed to play unsupervised have been shielded from most conflicts and have absolutely no idea how to handle them.

What the hooligans last Thursday at my lecture in Colorado were objecting to was a very different kind of invasion—a peaceful, voluntary offering of ideas they were unaware of, didn’t want to hear, and thought it was their right to prevent others from hearing. Their intent was to intimidate, to...

Reasonable people can disagree about how our tax dollars are spent, or whether our earnings should be confiscated at all, but Tax Freedom Day helps to put Americans’ tax burden into perspective.

God help us should we ever face a situation in our own lives when we need to act in the interest of human rights and in the same way – or need others to act on our behalf. This is why films like The Zookeeper’s Wife exist: the point the way to heroic actions and inspire the same in us.

"Prohibition in one form or another has been used for a long time without good results. Even Amnesty International now concedes that by decriminalizing sex work, resources can be devoted to preventing and resolving actual cases of trafficking, not paranoia supported by people with a narrow...

African poverty was not caused by colonialism, capitalism or free trade. African poverty is an outcome of unfortunate policy choices, most of which were freely chosen by Africa’s leaders after independence.

Many American states have made unaffordable and unfunded promises to give lavish benefits to retired bureaucrats. Rather than talking about America's prospects of ending up like Greece, we should be learning a lesson from Brazil.

Many people have bought into the idea that life is or should be an “endless series of climatic moments.” But we don't become great by winning all the time. A true master puts in work.

The practical application of liberal principles multiplied population figures and, in the countries committed to the policies of economic freedom, secured even to less capable and less industrious people a standard of living higher than that of the well-to-do of the “good old” days.

Auburn, Alabama is nicknamed “the loveliest village on the plains.” But ugliness threatened to descend on it last Tuesday when outsiders came looking for a fight. Thankfully, residents and Auburn University students refused to oblige, much to their honor and wisdom.

What is the minimum amount of money that you would demand in exchange for your going back to live even as John D. Rockefeller lived in 1916? Think about it. Hard. Carefully.

It’s routine. An outside lecturer is invited to speak on campus, to give a different perspective than students might be hearing in the classroom. It seems like the way academia is supposed to work. That is until the lecturer gets shouted down, threatened, and driven from campus.

During the 1970s and 1980s, many other countries had rates in that range, or higher.  However, over the past 15 years all other major countries have lowered their rates, leaving the United States with the highest in the world after the United Arab Emirates.

The patterns of human interactions that emerge in the absense of state intervention are unpredictable in their details, but history and theory both teach that such patterns do indeed emerge spontaneously.

Forty years ago tonight, President Jimmy Carter delivered an address making dark predictions of an imminent shortage of natural energy resources. But instead of ridiculing Carter’s speech, we should learn from it. It shows the power of markets to deal with resource constraints.

As the debate on health care rages on, one metric in particular appears to hold an outsized importance for the American people: the number of Americans covered by health insurance.

We all did our taxes painfully recently, and we're all still reeling from the numbers, thinking, "There has got to be a way to make this better." If you're single, there is: get married.

The title of this post is a sentence from Matt Ridley's recent speech at the Association for Private Enterprise Education in Maui, Hawaii. The statement is a good reminder that the most destructive and murderous actions in history were carried out by governments. Government use of force against...

The degradation to our culture far outweighs any short-term, tribal political benefit. The message sent when conservatives defend the indefensible is exactly the message the Democrats sent as they propped up the Clinton machine through scandal after scandal: Only winning matters.

So long as the Socialist zealots don’t burn me at the stake for my heretical views, I guess I won’t get too agitated by their bizarre fetish for statism. But I will periodically mock them. And that’s the purpose of today’s column.

Atlanta’s city council is contemplating making a smart move by decriminalizing marijuana possession within city limits. Right now 92% of Atlanta marijuana arrests come from the black community.

6 million protesters have filled the streets of Venezuela, in what is being called “the mother of all marches.’ The Chávez-Maduro regime has turned high powered water hoses and tear gas on its own starving citizens, some of whom have jumped in the river to escape or erected improvised barricades...

Senator Sessions assured us that he would respect the separation of powers between the executive and legislative branches. So why is he threatening to overturn a 2011 opinion by the Department of Justice that restored federal gambling law to Congress’s original intent?

New Drug War appointees Chris Christie and Tom Marino have passed and signed well-intentioned laws intended to help curb opioid use and abuse. But similar initiatives have made the situation worse in the past, and the renewed energy being put into the anti-drug task force will surely do the same...

Modern day prohibition is not just about marijuana. After all, legislation is still restricting adults from possessing alcohol.

Showerheads used to be easy to hack. And never doubt the need to do so. What do we want out of a shower? We want fantastic amounts of water pouring down on our heads, ideally like the waterfall we see in movies and art. That requires pulling out the government-mandated flow stopper after the...

We hear angry complaints from Trump's enemies that he is overstepping his authority, and they are right to say so. They didn't say the same of Obama when he was behaving in many of the same ways, but they did when Bush was President. The same is true of Trump supporters who were outraged at...

I had actually hoped that the repeal of Obamacare would be Trump’s equivalent of FDR’s actions to repeal alcohol prohibition, the one thing he would accomplish as a sop to the voters who backed him. No such luck.

Let’s hope that the governments of Venezuela, Cuba, and North Korea will soon lose power. But that’s only the first step. We also need to think about the policies that would enable these nations to undo the damage of pervasive socialism. Eastern Europe is a perfect case study in what to do and...

Why does government hate the gold standard … or any real standard for that matter? At the heart of government’s attack on gold, silver, bitcoin, and other commodity standards is an outright hatred for accountability and private property, and a real love for theft.
