It is no crime to be ignorant of economics, which is, after all, a specialized discipline and one that most people consider to be a "dismal science." But it is totally irresponsible to have a loud and vociferous opinion on economic subjects while remaining in this state of ignorance.
                       --Murray Rothbard
  1. Jstor - Online Academic Journals

    Amazing -- the complete set of the AER and other academic economics journals has been scanned in for your viewing and searching convenience.

  2. Marginal Revolution

    A fun blog run by my lunch buddies Tyler Cowen and Alex Tabarrok

  3. Robin Hanson's Webpage

    No one is smarter than Robin Hanson!

  4. Donald Wittman's Webpage

    I credit Wittman with waking me from my dogmatic slumbers in political economy. Answering the challenge of his Myth of Democratic Failure has inspired about 2/3 of my research.

Liberty and Philosophy

'Nature rejects the monarch, not the man; The subject, not the citizen; for kings And subjects, mutual foes, forever play A losing game into each other's hands, Whose stakes are vice and misery. The man Of virtuous soul commands not, nor obeys. Power, like a desolating pestilence, Pollutes whate'er it touches; and obedience, Bane of all genius, virtue, freedom, truth, Makes slaves of men, and of the human frame A mechanized automaton. --Percy Shelley, Queen Mab
  1. The Omnibus World-Wide Libertarianism Page

    Many people are first introduced to libertarian ideas on the Net. You can use to track down almost any idea, person, or event connected to libertarianism. My International Libertarianism Directory has been absorbed into the new regional directory.

  2. Michael Huemer Homepage

    A Philosopher of Uncommon Sense. Highlights include...

  3. Thomas Reid Society

    A great but neglected philosopher who put Hume in his place. For a nice encyclopedia entry on Reid's life and thought, click here.

    And this sport and fierce strife of idle men are thought to be worthy of the name of philosophy that, by these devices through so many ages, has grown, to be sure, into a bulk that is enormous, but one of little weight.
                           -- Thomas Reid
  4. James Donald Homepage

    Features scintillating expose of the tyranny and atrocities of the Spanish anarcho-socialists

  5. David Friedman Homepage

    The last living Founding Father of anarcho-capitalism...

  6. Internet Infidels

    We do not wish to be forgiven, but we wish Christians to so act that we will not have to forgive them. --Robert Ingersoll

  7. Thomas Szasz Ring

    A collection of links relating to Szasz's critique of mental illness. Featuring a piece by yours truly. :-)

  8. My Paradoxical Philosophy of Parenting: Parents have little effect on how their kids "turn out," but I'm still looking forward to homeschooling my sons.

Art and Entertainment

  1. Movies So Good It Hurts
  2. John Woo used to be my favorite Chinese director, but now I prefer Chen Kaige.

  3. The Hero System, my current role-playing game obsession.

  4. See me in Ukraine and Bulgaria

  5. Jungian Personality Test

    An interesting, if philosophically flawed, test for classifying personality types. I come out Extraverted Intuitive Thinking Judging (ENTJ), if you didn't guess...

  6. Five Factor Personality Test

    A much more complicated personality test with quite a bit of extra info. My profile:

    BTW, I'm not too happy about the "Agreeableness" label, I much prefer the Jungian "Thinking/Feeling" terminology...

  7. Does Bill Dickens exist?

    People who know me notice that I often speak of someone named "Bill Dickens," who was allegedly one of my Berkeley professors. One popular theory is that Bill is merely my "imaginary friend," and actually represents my alternate liberal personality. This theory seems plausible, insofar as it is a priori unlikely that a senior scholar at the Brookings Institution would want to spend several hours a day arguing with me. But then again, Bill always told me to be suspicious of a priori thinking...

  9. Biography and Works of Percy Shelley
    Thou art wisdom - Freemen never Dream that God will damn for ever All who think those things untrue, Of which Priests make such ado.
