Police vs. Black People: Satan Loves That Narrative

Seems like we have a country divided between people who reflexively side with cops and people who reflexively side with black suspects who are shot. It’s pure group-think. That’s not good. Solomon says, “He who answers before he hears a … Read More

On Dallas and Domestic Terrorism

Police have been murdered by snipers while guarding a peaceful, predominantly African-American protest.

Let’s be honest about what this is: Terrorism. It’s not Al-Qaeda and it’s not ISIS. It’s homegrown. And it’s our failure. But should we be surprised? … Read More

From the Editor – Best Year Ever to Help People Fall Out of Love With the State

Another 1776: Would An Armed Revolt Work Today?

Yesterday I attempted to ignite a debate (not a revolt) about the State of America now compared to 240 years ago, when we abolished the authority of the British government over our affairs.

The July 4th Question: 240 Years After the First Revolution, Is it Time For a Second?

Let’s start with a shocking, but true premise: If you are a patriotic American, you believe that there are circumstances under which it is right to take up arms against your own government. That statement feels wrong to me. … Read More

From the Editor – Cracks in the Tower of Babel

The UK has voted to leave the European Union. Yes, those are cracks we are seeing in the Tower of Babel. European intellectual and political elites dragged their populations into a gigantic social experiment. Exploiting un-expiated German war guilt … Read More

Are Churches Economically Consequential?

The big question I’ve been mulling around recently is this: Are churches economically consequential? Should they be? Look at the typical American church and ask, if that church disappeared from the community it’s in, how affected would that community be? … Read More

Lean In, or Butt Out

One of the promising things I saw about women getting more involved in the top leadership echelons of business is that they would bring something new and better: greater caution about risky behavior, more relational sensitivity — that they would … Read More

Recent College Graduates Slacking in Income Growth

Time to throw out all the brochure-based projections. Recent college grads now have lower income growth rates than the general public. Isn’t the whole point that, yes, you deferred earning for 5 years and, yes, you start at a lower … Read More

Annals of Overblown Stories: Tapering Will Kill Emerging Markets

I’d like to contrast the ‘big’ investment stories (as defined by press coverage) with the important stories as measured by principled reasoning.

Unmasking the Fair Trade Fraud

Now will all the clergy who rhetorically shoved fair trade coffee down the gullets of their parishioners apologize to them? More to the point, will they apologize to the villagers around the world who are paid less and with lower … Read More

It’s Not Europe That’s Stagnating; It’s Socialist Europe That’s Stagnating

France and Italy under left parties are floundering. Germany and England under conservatives are flourishing. It’s not that developed is decoupling from emerging, or that the U.S. is decoupling from old world. Throughout history, what’s always happening bit-by-bit, year-by-year, is … Read More

Where Did The Virgin Murderer Get His Worldview?

Peter Rodger had nothing to give his son except vast sums of money: A $40,000 BMW, first class tickets to a private Katy Perry concert. No God and no moral code above the vapid coexist bumper sticker ideology. His anti-Christian … Read More

No, Reuters, Market Didn’t “Shrug Off” Anti-Euro Votes — Markets Applauded Them
