    Hilarious quote from the chairman of China's sovereign wealth fund: "If you look at the troubles which have happened in European countries, this is purely because of the troubles of a worn-out welfare society.

  • Any study comparing budget deficits before and after the gold window is closed?

  • Looking to share the wealth..

    This is an extremely rough copy of something I want to post around; however I would like to get everyone's opinion on it first as it does represent MISES.org.

  • The Myth of Scandinavian Socialism

    Many leftists often point to the "superiority" of Scandinavian "socialism." Leftists often use Denmark and Sweden as their examples, since they are the most successful Scandinavian nations. I already covered this issue in an earlier post , but I feel it is important to rehash this...
