Thoughts, essays, and writings on Liberty. Written by the heirs of Patrick Henry.

“If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude greater than the animating contest for freedom, go home from us in peace. We seek not your counsel, nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you; May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.”     Samuel Adams

Quote Of The Day

by Brad Warbiany

Ezra Klein, who seems almost surprised that the predictions of public choice theory has come to pass:

Matt is right to say that a lot of what passed for “financial innovation” was in fact innovative efforts at regulatory arbitrage.

Well, yeah. When you have a massive regulatory state, don’t be surprised that people spend as much time trying to game the system as they do trying to offer a worthwhile product to the public.
