Cómo NO argumentar contra la existencia de los monopolios
Kevin Carson. Artículo original: How NOT to Argue Against the Existence of Monopoly, de 3 de agosto 2021. Traducido al español por Antonio J. Ferrer. Liz Wolfe parece haber reemplazado, en las últimas semanas, a Elizabeth Nolan Brown como la apologista en jefe de las plataformas tecnológicas en Reason. En su artículo más reciente sobre…
Sobre o Embargo a Cuba e Livre Mercado
​De Kevin Carson. Artigo original: On the Cuba Embargo, and Free Trade — Real and Imagined, de 26 de julho 2021. Traduzido para o português por Gabriel Serpa. A extensão dos danos econômicos causados pelo embargo a Cuba tem sido objeto de debate nos últimos tempos. Não estou interessado especificamente em Cuba, mas no que…
Come NON Criticare i Monopoli
Di Kevin Carson. Originale pubblicato il 3 agosto 2021 con il titolo How NOT to Argue Against the Existence of Monopoly. Traduzione di Enrico Sanna. Pare che da qualche settimana Liz Wolfe abbia usurpato il ruolo che era di Elizabeth Nolan di difensore capo delle piattaforme tecnologiche su Reason. Nel suo ultimo articolo sul tema,…
Cuba: Embargo e Libero Commercio, Vero e Presunto
Di Kevin Carson. Originale: On the Cuba Embargo, and Free Trade – Real and Imagined, pubblicato il 26 luglio 2021. Traduzione di Enrico Sanna. L’entità del danno economico causato dall’embargo contro Cuba è stato ultimamente oggetto di dibattito. Qui non m’interessa parlare specificamente di Cuba, ma di quello che l’ideologia neoliberale chiama genericamente “libero commercio”,…
How NOT to Argue Against the Existence of Monopoly
Liz Wolfe, in recent weeks, seems to have displaced Elizabeth Nolan Brown as the chief tech platform apologist at Reason. In her most recent article on this theme, “Google CEO Sundar Pichai Is Right: Companies That Dominate Today May Be Gone Tomorrow” (July 26), the general lines of her argument are simple: “Today’s Big Tech…
On the Cuba Embargo, and Free Trade — Real and Imagined
The degree to which the US trade embargo on Cuba has affected the economy of that country has been a matter of recent debate. I’m not concerned directly with Cuba here, but with the nature of what neoliberal ideology calls “free trade” more generally — of which an interesting discussion erupted as an offshoot of…
Il Male della Disuguaglianza
Di Gary Chartier. Originale pubblicato il 22 gennaio 2016 con il titolo What’s Wrong with Inequality? Traduzione di Enrico Sanna. A credere ai cosiddetti esperti, sembra quasi che tutto quest’odio verso la disuguaglianza sia frutto dell’invidia e di una certa ignoranza sul funzionamento dell’economia. Una ragione in più per non credere ai cosiddetti esperti. Il…
Via la Jones Act, Punto!!
Di James C. Wilson. Originale pubblicato l’undici ottobre 2017 con il titolo Just Reapeal the Jones Act, Already!! Traduzione di Enrico Sanna. La Merchant Marine Act del 1920, meglio conosciuta come Jones Act, è un classico esempio di quelle leggi, in vigore da decenni, che fanno parlare di sé solo quando creano problemi troppo grossi…
Just Repeal The Jones Act, Already!!
The Merchant Marine Act of 1920, better known as the Jones Act, is a classic example of a law that has remained on the books for decades, only attracting attention when it creates problems too big to ignore. This clearly happened this August, when it delayed shipments of aid to Puerto Rico following Hurricane Maria….
Commerciare con Cuba Senza Ipocrisie
Di James C. Wilson. Originale pubblicato il 23 giugno 2017 con il titolo End the Hypocrisy: Let Us Trade with Cuba. Traduzione di Enrico Sanna. La settimana scorsa il presidente Trump ha annunciato l’intenzione di interrompere il processo di rilassamento dei rapporti tra gli Stati Uniti e Cuba iniziato dall’amministrazione Obama. Trump ha chiesto un…
End the Hypocrisy: Let Us Trade with Cuba
Last week, President Trump announced intentions to roll back the Obama administration’s opening of relations between the U.S. and Cuba. Trump called for stricter enforcement of the ban on Americans visiting Cuba as tourists, as well as doing business with Cuba’s Armed Forces Business Enterprises Group.
Il “Libero Commercio” al Limone
[Di Kevin Carson. Originale pubblicato su Center for a Stateless Society il 18 gennaio 2017 con il titolo On Lemon “Free Trade”. Traduzione di Enrico Sanna.] Nella politica americana (dai Berniecratici all’establishment neoliberista centrista, ai libertari di destra, ai nazionalisti reazionari come Trump e i suoi seguaci) c’è molto disaccordo sul TTIP e altri accordi…
On Lemon “Free Trade”
There’s a lot of disagreement in American politics — from Berniecrats, to the centrist neoliberal establishment, to right-libertarians, to nationalist reactionaries like Trump and his followers — on TPP and other trade agreements. But there’s one thing they all agree on: calling it “free trade.” And they’re all wrong. At Reason (“The Neoliberal Era is…
Il Compra Americano Danneggia gli Americani
[Di Sheldon Richman. Originale pubblicato su Center for a Stateless Society il 18 aprile 2016 con il titolo Buy American Hurts Americans. Traduzione di Enrico Sanna.] Mike Lindell, presidente di My Pillow Inc, sembra una brava persona, e a me piacciono i suoi prodotti. Ma c’è qualcosa nella sua pubblicità che mi irrita: “Ogni componente…
Trade Is a Labor-Saving “Device”
Democratic politics makes savvy people stupid, at least when they act politically. This has long been demonstrated, and it applies both to voters and policymakers. Several things account for it: the impotence of one vote, the consequent futility and hence wastefulness of acquiring information, the dispersal of the costs of government, and the resulting theatrical…
Brexit and Our Long-Term Goals
The decentralisation of political authority is, in itself, undoubtedly a victory for the anarchist cause. However, in the case of the United Kingdom’s exit from the European Union, it may be strange to look at it this way, given the reasons for which the Leave side of the campaign won. The Leave campaign was grotesque…
Buy American Hurts Americans
Mike Lindell, president of My Pillow Inc., seems like a nice guy, and I like his product. But he says something in his commercial that bothers me: “Every part of my product is made in the USA.” What could be wrong with that? Lots of things. First, is it true? Lindell may really believe what…
Trump & the Conservative Establishment Deserve Each Other
No one should need National Review‘s advice to steer clear of Donald Trump. For one thing, the messenger is a curious one indeed. Although Trump doesn’t talk like a neoconservative Wilsonian, he has not cleanly separated himself from that faction either. Yes, he courageously recommended against invading Iraq — a year after the invasion took…
What’s Wrong with Inequality?
If you believed the talking heads, you might think concern with inequality in our society was just a product of envy and economic ignorance. That’s another reason not to believe the talking heads. The fact that someone has more wealth than I do doesn’t injure me or make me worse off. And the economy isn’t…
“Libertarian” Stossel Marginally Less Statist Than Trump
Seemingly John Stossel never sits down to write without the goal of further lowering the bar for qualifying as a libertarian. This time (“My Trump Problem,” Reason, Nov. 11), he’s managed to push the criterion to the all-time low of being somewhat less statist than Donald Trump. Stossel’s first problem with Trump allegedly centers on…
