- Our Books section featured two great essays this week. In “Jewish Learning, Human Liberty,” David Conway evaluates Moshe Halbertal’s Maimonides: Life and Thought. Arnold Kling considers the economics and societal implications posed by rapid advances in computer technology in his review of The Second Machine Age.
- Scott Sumner @ EconLib: Central banks do not deserve our respect or our condemnation; they deserve our skepticism.
- Rick Garnett @ the Conglomerate on religious liberty and the rights of employees.
- After oral arguments in the Hobby Lobby case this week, which Marc DeGirolami profiled well, Richard Samuelson’s older essay “What Adams Saw over Jefferson’s Wall” is again timely and worth a read.
- Daniel McCarthy on the strange power of Willmoore Kendall.
- Indiana rising: recently named 3rd best state for protecting property rights by Mercatus.
