What the pandemic has done is provide an excuse for governments to justify the mass collection of geo-location data. As we’ve pointed out, there is currently no way in which these data can be collected whilst respecting users’ fundamental right to privacy. There is no legal process for mandating...

The big destroyer of theme park operations will be social distancing. When a ride vehicle comes into the loading platform, the employees may have to disinfect it, then load it with each rider separated by one or more rows. The result is that the ride that had a capacity of a 1000 people per hour...

The results are a surprise.

Economists had projected a 0.6% contraction in the first quarter, and annual projections were much worse. As recently as April 30, Sweden’s central bank, the Riksbank, was predicting an economic contraction between 6.9 and 9.7 percent for 2020.

Just a few closures of meat packing plants are putting the entire meat industry on the brink of collapse. A congressman who also raises cattle sounded the alarm for years that burdensome regulations needed to go. Now will Congress act in time?

Research published in the Annals of Internal Medicine found that both surgical and cloth masks proved ineffective in preventing the spread of SARS-CoV-2, the coronavirus that causes COVID-19. Unfortunately, the results were not encouraging.

From its inception in 1946, the Foundation for Economic Education (FEE) has battled government encroachment into people’s lives. Why should we allow government interests to encroach on our views and work now?

That is why FEE recently turned down the forgivable government loan of...

As Sweden’s top infectious disease expert recently explained, Sweden’s approach to the pandemic is more orthodox than the current lockdown approach, at least compared to historical standards.

"There are a lot of variables,” Gov. Cuomo admitted. “I understand that.”

Writing at Mother Jones, Kevin Drum says an abundance of research supports Rand Paul’s assertion that school closures are an ineffective way to contain the spread of COVID-19, and may actually increase deaths.

Drum points to five academic studies that suggest Paul is onto something.

During the Great Recession, President Obama’s chief-of-staff Rahm Emanuel infamously advised, “You never want a serious crisis to go to waste.” And, sure enough, the COVID-19 threat has given politicians another crisis to promote long-sought policy goals. Some are calling for a modern version of...

It’s an odd fact of the human condition that we take extraordinary things for granted. As soon as a good thing becomes commonplace, we assume that its presence is just the ordinary state of affairs, and we forget to be grateful for it. On the other hand, the loss of a good thing often causes us...

A nationwide lockdown is a brutal, blunt tool. It presumes that each business, and each individual, operates in exactly the same manner, and that certain ‘experts’ (nay, philosopher kings) can best determine the path forward on behalf of over 50 million individual human beings. Hayek’s knowledge...

Economics not only deals with trade-offs between lives and wealth, but also lives versus lives—both without lockdowns and with them. That is, COVID-19 causes deaths, but so do lockdowns, although it is somewhat more difficult to see them in the latter case.

These casualities will be more...
