Alan Krueger’s recent death prompted well-deserved tributes. Nonetheless, his most famous study, co-authored with David Card, suffers from a serious flaw.

Technology and innovation enable us to take what we consider limited resources and unlock their infinite potential to produce massive abundance. But people must have the freedom to pursue these ideas where such innovations originate.

The idea of converting shipping containers into housing is hardly new, but container dwellings comprise a hip new housing type that is increasingly popular among millennials around the world and is inspiring architects to do marvelously creative things with big steel boxes.

California passed a bill in 2016 to bring the state’s minimum wage up to $15 an hour. Researchers estimate that the minimum wage increases will cost the state roughly 30,000 jobs from 2017 to 2022.

In the run-up to Trump’s campaign to be re-elected for a second presidential term next year, there is a great deal riding on this US gambit. If OPEC does not step up to the plate, and the oil price continues surging upwards, it could yet crystallize into a full-blown downturn.

Uncle Joe might be everybody’s favorite political meme, but he is also responsible for many of the policies that led to the breakdown of the American criminal justice system.

My generation has an opportunity to continue to propel us forward with the gifts capitalism and democracy have given us. The other option is that we can fall into the trap of entitlement and relapse into restrictive socialist destitution. The choice doesn’t seem too hard, does it?

You can’t ignore the lowest global poverty rate ever recorded just because the rich are getting richer, too. Only now, after thousands of years of horrible living conditions and unmovingly slow growth, can we see millions escaping poverty under the globalized economy. It’s not a world of angels...

Burger King sees fit to test market a meatless hamburger, but politicians think it’s perfectly normal to alter the multi-trillion dollar healthcare market nationally?

The city’s enormous debt is a result of years of financial mismanagement, and the pension system’s role in the problem is clearly massive. If no action is taken, the situation will only get worse.

Mitch McConnell's grand plan is a response to a manufactured crisis and strips 18-to 20-year-olds, who society has declared legal adults, of their basic right to decide for themselves what to put in their own bodies.

Your thoughts can multiply faster than rabbits; and soon, you have no mental bandwidth left to get on with your day. When we free up our mental bandwidth, we might be surprised by what is possible. What we focus our thinking on determines our experience of life.

"The evacuation was supposed to be three days. It was a lie by the communist regime just to take people out of their homes,” Sayavong said. It wasn’t until she landed in Little Rock, Arkansas, as a refugee from communist Cambodia on Oct. 31, 1981, that she began to imagine the luxuries freedom...

As an economic system, capitalism has led to greater opportunity and technological advancement than anything that preceded it. But Ray Dalio feels that capitalism has become a danger to itself. In the end, Dalio is right. American capitalism does need saving, but not from itself.

A private pension fund with these numbers would have been shut down a long time ago. And its executives would be in prison for running a Ponzi Scheme.

This is not an argument for or against reparations; it’s about statistical purity and the media’s propensity for lackadaisical groupthink progressivism. Once we allow political agenda to override integrity of debate and story, we stand orthogonal to the fundamentals of higher education.

Let’s assume that basically all of the complaints about social media are correct. Then let’s also imagine, as Matt Yglesias periodically suggests on Twitter, that Facebook is shut down altogether; toss in Twitter and the others as well. What would happen?

Some kids may be “succeeding,” but they’re miserable. Parents can take charge and halt this pattern of overwhelmed and over-scheduled children. They can begin by using summer as a launching pad to a freer, more self-directed, more play-filled, and happier life for their children and teens.

There are so many ways to buy happiness with money! The fact that “Money doesn’t buy happiness” clashes with the equally obvious fact that “Money can buy happiness.” Most people stubbornly spend lots of money on hedonic dead-ends, while ignoring omnipresent opportunities to turn cash into smiles...

Considering the US media has refused to own its failures on Russiagate, it’s likely the pervasive anti-Russian hysteria will continue to the detriment of humanity. This is not the first time Russia scares have influenced global politics.

The petition cited the “historically, negatively charged figure of Colonials [that] has too deep a connection to colonization and glorifies the act of systemic oppression” as grounds for changing the mascot’s name.

Advocates for liberty have no reason to cede the moral high ground to an "anointed" class that seeks to impose top-down solutions to correct perceived injustices, Sowell argued.

If the Dealmaker-in-Chief thinks it’s a good deal to force US consumers to pay $820,000 annually in higher costs to create a new $43,000-per-year factory job, then he might have to re-think his deal-making strategies. The costs to American consumers exceeds the value of each new job by a factor...

Intensified by the early fight for money and backers among Democratic presidential hopefuls, Medicare for All has been promoted with increased volume and “I’ll give you more for less” sales pitches. Despite Medicare supposedly being half as costly in that regard, administrative costs would not...

Why do Americans fail to understand how ruinous our national debt truly is and what an astounding percent of our national budget we are now spending on interest?

There is a temptation here to talk in national aggregates and disparage faceless corporations, but do not fall for this, for all trade—all business—takes place on a personal level.

If reparations do go forward, neither of these institutions will be held responsible or even mentioned in the mainstream press, despite the facts of history.

The most important parallel between both the road and highway system and the ISP system is that coordination exists between the entrepreneurs, based on property rights. Simply put, net neutrality would limit entrepreneurs in pursuing business endeavors via trial and error, consequently affecting...

It is easy to remain silent in the face of evil. What is harder—what we lack today and so desperately need—are those with moral courage who will risk their freedoms and lives in order to speak out against evil in its many forms.

Tolerance and the decentralization of power are inherently more conducive to peace than fighting over who gets to be at the top of a heap. The infant republic was on its way to replicating the success of nearby Ragusa when the winds of war blew it apart.

The socialist notion of “sharing” is nothing of the kind. Sharing is voluntary, this is coerced. It is not sharing but coercion that is the essence of socialism. As the British author Kingsley Amis—a youthful socialist who came to support Thatcher—put it, “if socialism is not about compulsion,...

The Nazi Party’s chief propagandist, Joseph Goebbels, once remarked that he’d sooner live under Bolshevism than capitalism. Yet while the Nazis were disdainful of capitalism, this disdain did not extend to capitalists themselves.

This story is a clear example of where the federal government has been far more of a hindrance than a help for the American people. Fortunately, the free market is already responding.

Liberty is a prerequisite for charity. So what did we learn about 2020 candidates’ charitableness?

According to the Washington Post, for 2017 returns, Beto O’Rourke’s family donated one-third of 1 percent of its income to charity, Kamala Harris gave 1.4 percent, Amy Klobuchar and Kristen...

I visited Chongqing in 1994, and recall a muddy, drab city full of crumbling grey cement buildings, with lots of poor people carrying heavy loads on their backs. But now interior cities like Chongqing look quite affluent.

If Americans continue down the path of sacrificing civil liberties to feel more secure, they may one day find themselves living in a world that resembles the dystopias envisioned by Philip K. Dick and George Orwell more than they would have dreamed possible.

The authors at Jacobin fail to grasp the nature of why central planning does not work, which is evident in their conflation of Friedrich Hayek’s position with Ludwig von Mises’s on why central planning in the economy is impossible.

Any horse you want to train can kick you in the head and kill you. Any dog can turn on you. Any trained parrot could (presumably) cuss you out. And your unconscious will do the same if treated to the same fare every day.

Reasonable people can disagree about the merits of a major new plan to forgive student debt. But in order to have the debate, they need to know that’s the proposal in question. The Affordable Loans for Any Student Act is a giant new loan forgiveness program and politicians should come right out...
