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.

He'd be a stealth nominee, like a Supreme Court nominee who doesn't have a record. Can anyone spell Chief Justice Roberts?

Patraeus would energize the far left Democrats and put the Ron Paul Republicans to sleep.

Romney has an uphill battle to win this thing. He had better not screw up his VP nomination. I think he has to reach out to the Tea Party and/or the Ron Paul Republicans to get the biggest bang for his buck. The perfect choice?


(I love Marco Rubio, but the Paulites consider him a neo-Con. Tim Pawlenty -- or any half-Republican -- would be a disaster.)
