The most educative and useful economic site on the net.

Jim Bowman writes:

Search for Bagehot, Lombard Street led me to this site. Am writing about effect on local community -- town, village -- of lower taxes on its economy, with reference to Chicago suburban Oak Park. We know how it works nationally, but how about suburban in major metro area?

Russ Abbott writes:

I found Econlib when I did a Google search for "Unintended Consequences." As it turns out, I disagree with the generality of Rob Norton's article. In my view he fails to distinguish between historical consequences and the use of a deliberately installed mechanisms for purposes other than that for which it was created.

I've been collecting what I call a Museum of Unintended Consequences. Check it out if you are interested.
