I haven't done one of these in awhile, so I thought it was time to share a handful of links to some great stuff I've read recently.
Richard Ebeling at The Citadel offers a fantastic take down of the Keynesian view of recessions for the layman. It's certainly worth a read for the non-specialist in macro.
The always-insightful Don Boudreaux recently discussed the role of theory in measuring the effects of the minimum wage. He also provided a short note on the role of institutions in economic analysis in response to a reader's question and an interesting take on the economic way of thinking. Very good stuff.
Jayson Lusk recently weighed in on the fight between scientific integrity and consumer sovereignty in the food world. He also provided a short discussion of an article on crop insurance subsidies and risk taking.
John Tamny reviews a recent book on the myriad ways gov't policy has and will negatively affect the millennial generation.
