Assorted Links (11/8/2009)

Here’s a list of articles that I have been reading today (organized by topic):

The Economy


“Ludwig von Mises explained how government-induced credit expansions led to imbalances in the economy.”

Health Care Reform

“Here are some important passages in the 2,000 page legislation.

“Obamacare could have the unintended consequence of raising health insurance premiums and causing a decline in the number of people with insurance.”


  • The Rose Garden Path, by Peggy Noonan

“The White House has gotten bad at listening, and now it’s paying the price.”

  • The myth of ’08, demolished, by Charles Krauthammer

“Sure, Election Day 2009 will scare moderate Democrats and make passage of Obamacare more difficult. Sure, it makes it easier for resurgent Republicans to raise money and recruit candidates for 2010. But the most important effect of Tuesday’s elections is historical. It demolishes the great realignment myth of 2008.”
