Bryan Caplan  

The Rational Liberal Minister

I Bet An Austrian... The Default Path for Taxes...

I had a stimulating, well-reasoned interview with noted liberal activist and ordained minister Barry Lynn, host of "Culture Shocks." I continue to be surprised by the bipartisan reaction to my book - has Bush inadvertently opened liberal eyes to the folly of the median voter?

I'm particularly pleased by the end of the interview, when I help Lynn overcome what Arnold calls anti-finance bias. Maybe Barry was just doing his job, but I really got the feeling that if he gave me a semester, I could turn him into one of the best economists on the air.

Too bad his opportunity cost is so high!

Byran: Please, never surrender the term "liberal." Never. It may not work to call ourselves liberal, but never surrender it to them.

BTW, I just got back from a week-long seminar in CZ Repub organized by the Liberal Institute. In the heart of Europe, liberal still means liberal.

Thanks, Dan

Todays's liberals are really socialists, utopians, or communists. Yesterday's liberals are probably closer to today's libertarians.
