Defining Revolution Down
Cass Sunstein is such an excellent, if unintentional, parody of liberal goo-gooism that it’s hard to tell him from a creation of The Onion. As proof that “our democratic system structures” are not rigged — whatever Gloomy Guses like Elizabeth Warren and Lawrence Lessig may think — Sunstein (“The American System Isn’t Rigged,” BloombergView, August…
Elizabeth Warren’s War on Students on Feed 44
C4SS Feed 44 presents Jeff Ricketson‘s “Elizabeth Warren’s War on Students” read by Tony Dreher and edited by Nick Ford. It’s absurd to suggest that the solution to overpriced government student loans is to eliminate profit from the program. Loans are supposed to be the current use of one’s future capital. Interest rates signal how efficient this advance…
Shutdown Theater (Off-Off Broadway Follies) on Feed 44
C4SS Feed 44 presents Thomas L. Knapp‘s “Shutdown Theater (Off-Off Broadway Follies)” read by James Tuttle and edited by Nick Ford. When even “progressive” Democrats like Elizabeth Warren threaten “shutdown” to get their way, it’s just too obvious that there’s no real shutdown in play. Per Chekhov, “[i]f you say in the first chapter that there is a…
Shutdown Theater (Off-Off Broadway Follies)
It’s surprising what passes for high political drama these days. After a DC dust-up similar to, but neither as exciting as watching paint dry nor as convincing as professional wrestling, the US House of Representatives passed a $1.1 trillion “Cromnibus” bill to fund the federal government through September 2015, passing it on to the US…
End the Fed: The Economics of Liberty on Feed 44
C4SS Feed 44 presents Grant A. Mincy‘s “End the Fed: The Economics of Liberty” read by Christopher B. King and edited by Nick Ford. Thanks to Carmen Segarra, however, we now have some keen insight to the inner operations of the Federal Reserve System. Segarra was recently employed at the New York Fed as a bank examiner, charged…
Chiudete la Fed: L’Economia della Libertà
La Federal Reserve ha l’incarico di mettere in pratica la politica monetaria americana. Considerato che dirige la più grande potenza economica mondiale, la Fed è ai vertici delle istituzioni di potere. Anche se guida la politica monetaria pubblica, la Fed è in gran parte privata. Dunque si muove in segreto, in assenza di controlli pubblici….
End the Fed: The Economics of Liberty
The Federal Reserve is responsible for implementing US monetary policy. As it directs the world’s largest economy, the Fed earns top rank among powerful institutions. Though the central bank guides state monetary policy, the Fed is largely a private institution. As such, bank operations move in secrecy, absent of oversight from the public arena. Thanks…
Elizabeth Warren’s War on Students
On the liberal wing of American politics, US Senator Elizabeth Warren’s (D-MA) success in capturing the love of millions is astounding. Her image as savior of indebted workers and unheard voices in America strikes a note with those concerned about reduced class mobility, and rightly so. Consider Warren’s speech introducing emergency legislation to allow refinancing of student loans….
L’Autoritarismo di Elizabeth Warren
Durante tutta la durata della “chiusura” del governo americano, i politici democratici hanno paragonato i loro rivali repubblicani ad “anarchici”, dicendo che la “chiusura” dimostra la necessità di un governo. Un esempio è un recente intervento al senato della senatrice Elizabeth Warren, democratica. I fraintendimenti del suo intervento sono rampanti. Confonde cooperazione e governo dicendo: “Nella nostra…
The Authoritarianism Of Elizabeth Warren
Throughout the US government “shutdown,” Democratic politicians have compared their Republican rivals to “anarchists” and argued that the “shutdown” proves government necessary. A recent speech by US Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) on the Senate floor exemplifies this trend. Misconceptions run rampant in Senator Warren’s speech. She conflates cooperation and government, stating “In our democracy, government is…
