Yes, Obama is a Tyrant, Just Like His Predecessor posted 07/07/2014, 4:31 PM (William Norman Grigg)

In the heat of a testy exchange with a hostile journalist, the White House press spokesman insisted that “Congress ... does not have constitutional oversight responsibility over the White House.”

This patently untrue defense of unaccountable presidential power was not offered by former Obama administration spokesman Jay Carney – although it certainly could have been. It was actually made by the late Tony Snow while he was working as the press spokesman for George W. Bush in 2007.<

Burgeoning Regulations Threaten Our Humanity posted 07/07/2014, 4:31 PM (Robert Higgs)
[Category: Economy]
Insofar as mainstream economics may be said to make moral-philosophical assumptions, it rests overwhelmingly on a consequentialist-utilitarian foundation. When mainstream economists say that an action is worthwhile, they mean that it is expected to give rise to benefits whose total value exceeds its total cost (that is, the most valued benefit necessarily forgone by virtue of this particular action's being taken). But nearly always the economists make no attempt to evaluate as part of their bene... (more)


Commerce is Civilization; Government is Barbarism posted 07/07/2014, 4:31 PM (William Norman Grigg)
[Category: Commentary]
According to Barney Frank, a former Democratic Congressman from Massachusetts, “government is simply things we choose to do together.”

As it is used by the political class, the word “government” tacitly encompasses every form of human cooperation – because there is nothing they would leave outside of their sphere of control. Not only is it possible for people to cooperate without the supervision or interference of the state, such interference actually undermines peaceful and produ

Central banking has taken interest rate reduction to its absurd conclusion. If observers thought the European Central Bank (ECB) had run out of room by holding its deposit rate at zero, Mario Draghi proved he is creative, cutting the ECB’s deposit rate to minus .10 percent, making it the first major central bank to institute a negative rate.

Can a central-bank edict force present goods to no longer have a premium over future goods?
