"Americans have become so accustomed to regime change as part of their federal governmental structure that most everyone has become quite blase about the topic. A good example is Syria, which has now been pushed front and center into the consciousness of the American people.

"There is something incredibly inspiring about caring for others. I share your contempt for the inequities we find within and between countries. It hurts me each time I think about the unnecessary loss of life in the world due to poverty and economic stagnation. I am a classical liberal not because I don't care for others but because I do. I share your concern for the plight of the poor, I appreciate your desire for change, and I respect your disdain for narrow nationalism and feudalism. It is out of this appreciation that I ask you to come back to your political roots." (11/24/15)

The Fed is above the law

by Scott Sumner   Scott Sumner

"This post may upset some people, but I am simply trying to describe the world as it is, not as I would wish it to be. I recently spoke with Ryan Hart, who is researching the legal status of Fed policy. That got me thinking about the Fed's mandate, and whether it is legally enforceable." (11/24/15)
