why-sen.-josh-hawley-is-right-to-go-after-negligent-landlords

Toilets should not leak into dining rooms. That incident was probably the nadir of the various indignities I’ve endured as a renter. Not only was it was gross, it epitomized a landlord whose approach to maintenance was never to do today what could be put off until tomorrow, next week, or next year. Waste-water dripping…

why-the-right-should-care-about-income-inequality

A prevailing line of thought on the right, which can be readily found in the National Review or the Wall Street Journal’s editorial page, goes like this: Democrats’ obsession with inequality is not borne out by the data, because they aren’t accounting for the steep taxes paid by the top earners, and the generous welfare…

10-books-every-conservative-should-read-to-combat-leftist-misinformation

At its best, conservatism is about learning the lessons of the past and applying them to today.

3-false-dichotomies-in-the-debate-over-free-trade-and-tariffs

The debate over trade and tariffs was quiet for a quarter-century. When Bill Clinton endorsed the North American Free Trade Agreement, he aligned his Democratic Party with the Republicans for free trade with the third world and quieted, he thought, one of the longest-running arguments in American history. But history has its own ideas. Trade…

why-bernie-sanders’-nationwide-rent-control-proposal-is-nuts

There are few principles in economics that receive near-universal consensus from economists, and the truth that ‘rent control is bad’ is one of them. Sen. Bernie Sanders (D-Vt.) has made some outlandish proposals, and his recent endorsement of nationwide rent control is no exception. This past weekend, the 2020 Democratic contender tweeted, “We need nationwide…

As I watch the fearless Hong Kong protesters risk life and limb, standing up to the Chinese juggernaut to protect freedom, I can’t help but wistfully wish we’re witnessing the beginning of a spreading popular movement. In my heart of hearts, it’s my fondest hope that these courageous, freedom-loving protesters succeed and that their message…
