"Conservatives also tend to think that loosening monetary policy is a kind of intervention in free markets, and therefore to be suspicious of it. But this is an error. Professor Hendrickson points out that in a system of free banking, with competitive note issue rather than a central bank, the desire for profit and the need for solvency would lead to the supply of banknotes roughly equaling the demand. In a fiat-money regime such as the one under which we, for better or worse, live, a central bank’s withholding of a sufficient supply of money is just as much of an intervention in the economy as its overproduction of it." -- Ramesh Ponnuru

"Conde Nast is Reddit's rather unlikely corporate parent, and it's not unreasonable to wonder if maybe Vogue editor Anna Wintour stumbled upon Jailbait one evening, spilled her wine in shock, then pulled the plug."

In retrospect, the Virginia Plan makes a whole lot of sense, at least in terms of yoking legislative and executive powers effectively.

I always thought New Jersey must have regretted forcing the Connecticut compromise. In fact, the proponent of the small state plan is still larger than the proponent of the large state plan.
