"The right to liberty is not limited only to inheritors of one or another tribe or culture, or to practitioners of only one or another religion, or to speakers of one or another language. It is the right of all human beings as such, regardless of religion, color, language, nationality, or other features. It offers the choice to live one’s life as one chooses in association with others in communities one chooses"

"Wealth creation is most likely to happen when people are able to innovate without permission and put their ideas to the market test.
...What [permissionless-innovation] also does is to drive the creation of value across entire societies, raising the standard of living for all of their inhabitants.
... Wealth does not “trickle down” from rich to poor. It is created by all of us when we develop new ideas, skills, and products as either workers or owners of capital." - Steven Horwitz

"Between the late 1970s and the early 1990s, government revenue surged from under 25 per cent of GDP to over 35 per cent, but client states are expensive to maintain, and government favours fuel demand for more government favours. So the money was never enough, and the shortfall was made up by borrowing and printing more of it."
What I admire about the anti-capitalist left is their ability to present their ideas as somehow "unorthodox" and "anti-mainstream", when they are clearly nothing of the sort. Go to any high street bookstore, and you will find that the politics section consists of little else but the tomes of Naomi Klein, Noam Chomsky, Russell Brand, Owen Jones, Ha-Joon Chang, George Monbiot and the other usual suspects. If that is a "neoliberal hegemony", I dread...

For development economists like me, Deaton was a revolutionary and a visionary.

" ...the yuan, which has remained largely tethered to the dollar, had become too strong against other currencies, particularly its primary trading partners in Asia and the Pacific. To remain competitive locally, it decided to ease the tether to the dollar and instead let its currency float more freely."

"Greece will not get very far out of its present morass without coming to grips with how it got there. The country provides a textbook example of a flawed economic system"

I really enjoy the spicy chicken sandwich whenever I visit. During busy hours at weekdays - mostly lunch time - you have stewards working extra diligent to make sure drive through orders move speedily. Greatly recommend.

Got wife's new car from here. Great place. Great salespeople. Add ons include a merry singing from all staff after closing, introduction to the guys at the car service workshop and regular updates on how you're enjoying your new ride. Totally recommend.
