This lady is strong.
He is very uncomfortable to the reactions since he began representing Abdeslam. "The Arabs welcomed me, while non-Arabs throw me hateful glances. This is very sick."
In the Heritage Foundation's Index of Economic Freedom, Denmark has approximately the economic freedom of the US and Sweden trails in by a mere three points. The lowest ranked Scandinavian country, Norway, trails by a mere six points. Even Mexico is only some nine points off. The fact is that the top 50 states in the index cluster very closely together. Recall, too, that Heritage's Index counts taxation against economic freedom; so for high tax countries like Sweden and Denmark to score so high, the rest of their market must be a Smithian utopia by comparison to the US.
Yet what we never hear is that free markets aren't appropriate for the US because free market societies are relatively homogeneous. In fact, no one ever points out that Hong Kong is 94% Chinese and is consistently the highest ranked. Singapore, the usual Number Two, is 74% Chinese while the US is only 63% non-Hispanic White. By all accounts, the racial and ethnic diversity of the US should be a strong objection to free market policies if they're an objection welfare states. But that's never raised on the right.
Rather, it's raised on the Left, which insists that economic intervention is a necessary component of a diverse society. Nor are they without evidence: the major driver of ethnic acceptance historically was the patronage system in cities. By doling out government jobs to immigrant supporters of the party machine, they raised the incomes and respectability of those communities until they were perceived, in large measure, as simply white. Simultaneously, even libertarian writers like Bryan Caplan give implicit support to the Left's position, holding that biases against foreigners and other outgroups leads to economic distrust. While he focuses on the broader macro policy implications, it's obvious that this same mechanic means subtle exclusion from market participation.
In terms of applications for their discovery, the researchers suggest the ability to replace a $100,000 low-temperature superconducting magnet in a research X-ray machine with a $300 TFM, or possibly replace a motor with one that is a quarter of the size of an existing one. There are many other potential applications, such as an energy-efficient ore separator, noncontact magnetic gears that will not wear or require repair, a red blood separator with 50 percent improved yield, and even an automated docking system for spacecraft.
