  • Re: What is the definition of "Keynesian"?

    What's the functional difference of the government regulating nearly every aspect of the economy and goosing it up with subsidies, and it controlling the economy? The difference between fascism and socialism? Saying you're for markets but desire government intervention in every facet of them means you are for markets when it comes to trivial

    Yes, I edited my reply with that in mind.

  • Re: Which Jobs Actually Require a Degree?

    Strictly speaking? Nothing requires university per se. Although with some things, like accountancy, law, surgery, psychology, dentistry, medicine, engineering etc., you want people who are competent and well trained doing them. Though in the UK, unless you know a trade or have an entrepreneurial mind, good luck getting decent paying work without a degree

  • Re: What have Austrians been wrong about?

    Murphy has admitted being wrong on hyperinflation, which Krugman and DeLong like to wield over his head. Mostly because Murphy couched it in terms of CPI, which was clumsy on his part. Schiff also gets predictions wrong sometimes. Which isn't surprising, he doesn't have a crystal ball. Few investors ever manage to systematically beat the market

  • Re: Historian Niall Ferguson

    All of these people need some catchy phrase with which to distinguish themselves. Whether it's "ideas having sex" or the "selfish gene", or indeed, "killer apps". Grows a bit thin after a while.

  • Re: Myths of Geolibertarianism

    Because the constructive or destructive behavior of individuals in the locality of a site, determine part of its value. An excellent surgeon's labor at the hospital drives up the price of the land in the locality by improving its quality in the sense that it is nearer to an excellent service: himself. So when the landowner keeps all of the rent

  • Re: Character Alignment

    I tend to score neutral or lawful evil on these tests, but it's because D&D adopts a rather simplistic, Manichean approach to morality, and also because the questions are limited in their scope.

    D&D, trying to be more inclusive to the girls that don't and probably will never even play it.

  • Re: Myths of Geolibertarianism

    Who knows whether one owns this or that? These are social constructs. Then what does it matter who contributes what to the value of land? Or its price? You're not entitled to particular configurations of value anyway, and I know of no libertarian who argues you are entitled to own something because you increased its value, anymore. Value is subjective

  • Re: Myths of Geolibertarianism

    So this ideology's entire position hinges on whether you own value or not? Well, you don't. Nor is ownership predicated on it. Why would you own value? If I were to create complementary goods that increase the value, say, of a PS3, should I get to tax Sony for this additional value they have now acquired through no effort of their own? And if
