About This Blog

Ludwig von Mises (1881-1973) was the greatest economist of my time. His greatest works can be accessed here at no charge.

Mises believed that property, freedom and peace are and should be the hallmarks of a satisfying and prosperous society. I agree. Mises proved beyond a shadow of a doubt that the prospect for general and individual prosperity is maximized, indeed, is only possible, if the principle of private property reigns supreme. What's yours is yours. What's mine is mine. When the line between yours and mine is smudged, the door to conflict opens. Without freedom (individual liberty of action) the principle of private property is neutered and the free market, which is the child of property and freedom and the mother of prosperity and satisfaction, cannot exist. Peace is the goal of a prosperous and satisfying society of free individuals, not peace which is purchased by submission to the enemies of property and freedom, but peace which results from the unyielding defense of these principles against all who challenge them.

In this blog I measure American society against the metrics of property, freedom and peace.

Go to Craig Steiner, U.S.

One of the very best economic blogs I've found on the internet is Craig Steiner, U.S., "Common sense American conservatism."

Craig's economic analysis is flawless and insightful to the point of being scary good. If you enjoy the subject of economics and, if you want to understand the vagaries of Washington fiscal and monetary shenanigans and their effect on you, become a regular reader of Craig's blog.

You won't be disappointed.

By the way, if we use the criteria of Property...Freedom...Peace to judge a blog's political philosophy, Craig Steiner, U.S. scores high marks.
