Walter Williams: “Politicians Exploit Economic Illiteracy”

Walter Williams

Prior to reading the Weekend Interview in this morning’s Wall Street Journal, I had never heard of Walter Williams. After reading this interview, I will be looking for more of Williams’ work. What really struck me this morning about the George Mason University economist? He badly wants the truth and he embodies the best of ‘sense on cents’ in pursuing it. How so?

Amen!! (more…)

This interview, “Lew Rockwell on von Mises, Ron Paul, Free-Markets, and the Future of Freedom”, is filled with incredible insights and perspectives.

While I am not one to promote political platforms, I am all for embracing those who desire the truth wherever it can be found. There is no doubt Lew Rockwell has a burning desire for this greatest of virtues.

I strongly recommend you read, ponder, and review Lew Rockwell’s thoughts and comments. He can certainly help us navigate the economic landscape.   (more…)
