If you don’t like being taxed, etc., then leave! That’s what the totalitarians tell you. You’ve implicitly agreed to abide by the rules by your mere presence here, they say, along with other bad arguments. Here’s my answer...
So I’m minding my own business on Twitter — where you can follow me @ThomasEWoods, by the way — and some guy starts suggesting that the Austrian School economists are just shills and apologists for the bankers.I restrained...
A great piece in Bloomberg that takes apart the “What about Sweden?” non-argument that invariably comes up in debates over the free market. (Thanks to Chris B.)Incidentally, Bob Murphy notes that Paul Krugman, in his typical...
With the head of Mises Canada. (When I move into my new office space in town I’ll be able to stream better; at my present location it’s a miracle I can get high-speed Internet at all.)Originally posted on TomWoods.com
Someone sent a message via my Facebook page in which he noted something a friend had told him:Demand creates jobs. How do we increase demand? We provide assistance where needed to create economic activity where the private...

My friend Brad Thompson, whom I interviewed last year (see the second half of this YouTube video) on neoconservatism, sent along this talk he gave not long ago on the subject of why Marxism attracted (and in some cases still...

That poor soul from the other day who insisted Lincoln never said that blacks shouldn’t be voters or jurors, or intermarry with white people, or that he had no intention to interfere with slavery where it existed, still...
My presentation at the Mises Institute’s event at Furman University last weekend called “War: Big Government’s Best Friend.” Makes a libertarian case against war and chronicles my own evolution from neocon to libertarian....
