The Bureaucrat as a Voter

The bureaucrat is not only a government employee. He is, under a democratic constitution, at the same time a voter and as such a part of the sovereign, his employer. He is in a peculiar position: he is both employer and employee. And his pecuniary interest as employee towers above his interest as employer, as he gets much more from the public funds than he contributes to them.

No, Conservatives Should Not Embrace MMT

Reading Jonathan Culbreath’s “Modern Monetary Theory for Conservatives” one can’t help but think of Murray Rothbard’s quip that “it is not a crime to be ignorant of economics … but it is totally irresponsible to have a loud and vociferous opinion on economic subjects while remaining in this state of ignorance.“ Culbreath’s case for modern monetary theory (MMT) rests on an ignorance of basic economic principles regarding the role of money in a free...

Episode 89 – Irreconcilable Differences with Jeff Deist

In this very special episode, we are joined by the coolest patriarch in the liberty world, Mr. Jeff Deist of the Mises Institute. He is a man whose rational and apt arguments have been called hateful by the Woke Mob, the man who coined "post-persuasion," and a pillar of freedom in a chaotic world. Join us as we explore our current paradigm and our dire need for decentralization and secession.

Thanks to the Fed, the High-Risk, Small-Time Borrower Is Becoming a Thing of the Past

Banks and accounting trickery go together. Last year, as I remember back to my banking days, financial institutions followed the advice once proffered by one of our board members, “If we’re going to the dump, let’s take a full load.”  When the pandemic struck, banks dumped plenty in their loan-loss provisions, $60 billion, expecting the worst.

Why Empowering Organized Labor Will Definitely Not Help the Economy

Paul Krugman has a very prominent perch from the editorial page at the New York Times and he has used his influence, among other things, to shill for two things that are anathema to a strong economy: inflation and organized labor. My analysis examines what Krugman says about labor unions and explains why once again his economic prognostications are off base.

A Dozen Dangerous Presumptions of Crisis Policymaking

Congress and the president have adopted many critically important policies in great haste during brief periods of perceived national emergency. During the first “hundred days” of the Franklin D. Roosevelt administration in the spring of 1933, for example, the government abandoned the gold standard, enacted a system of wide-ranging controls, taxes, and subsidies in agriculture, and set in motion a plan to cartelize the nation’s manufacturing...

The Biggest Threat to US Hegemony: China, Russia, or Debt?

Now that the Biden administration has settled in, it is time to reassess American policy towards Russia, China and the wider Asian scene. Is it going to be a continuation of the Trump administration’s policies, or is there something new going on? Given the continued tenure of staffers at the Pentagon from before the Trump presidency, it seems unlikely there will be much in the way of détente: it is game-on for the cold war to continue.

Is Tucker Carlson Right About Replacement Theory?

Tucker Carlson seems to believe that if it weren't for immigrants, America would be dominated by religiously devout, tradition-minded, liberty-loving Americans in every corner of the nation. Perhaps he's not familiar with the effects of American universities and public schools? Be sure to follow Radio Rothbard at Mises.org/RadioRothbard.

America’s “Great Men” and the Constitutional Convention

From the very beginning of the great emerging struggle over the Constitution the Antifederalist forces suffered from a grave and debilitating problem of leadership. The problem was that the liberal leadership was so conservatized that most of them agreed that centralizing revisions of the Articles were necessary—as can be seen from the impost and congressional regulation of commerce debates during the 1780s.

State Legislatures Are Finally Limiting Governors’ Emergency Powers. But only Some of Them.

Last week, Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb vetoed a bill that would limit gubernatorial authority in declaring emergencies. The bill would allow the General Assembly to call itself into an emergency session, with the idea that the legislature could then vote to end, or otherwise limit, a governor’s emergency powers.

Biden’s New Budget Plan Means Trump-Era Mega Spending Will Continue

The reality of federal spending under Donald Trump did much to put to rest the obviously wrong and long-disproved notion that Republicans are the political party of “fiscal responsibility.” With George W. Bush and Ronald Reagan, it was pretty much “full speed ahead” as far as federal spending was concerned. Under George W. Bush, some of the biggest budget-busting years were those during which the Republicans also controlled Congress.
