Assorted Links (11/19/2009)

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

Economics

Financial Crisis

“When you repeal sound economic policies you repeal their results.” 

Law

“For late-19th-century anarchists, terrorism was the “propaganda of the deed.” And the most successful propaganda-by-deed in history was 9/11 — not just the most destructive, but the most spectacular and telegenic.”

Politics

“The Democratic Party seeks a wildly optimistic individual to oversee a national jobs-creation program.”

“What a surprise — that someone who shouts “Allahu Akbar” (the “God is great” jihadist battle cry) as he is shooting up a room of American soldiers might have Islamist motives. It certainly was a surprise to the mainstream media, which spent the weekend after the Fort Hood massacre playing down Nidal Hasan’s religious beliefs.”

Religion

“Dissident intellectuals have been attracted to Christianity.”
