Better Than Football

For the politically demented, 2016 was a vintage year. Well, at least for those whose blood warms when seeing their foes splay and spasm like wounded squid. Watching pious progressives meltdown in real-time has become something of a spectator sport. Now, this sounds a little abrasive, perhaps. But after eight years of slumberous

Migration: The Straw That’s Breaking Europe’s Back

Bourbon Doesn’t Matter (and Other Hard Truths About Trade)

President Trump promised to put America first when it comes to foreign trade. Most conservatives think this is a good thing: why should we let Japan manipulate its currency with impunity?
