As Trump prepares for power, America, Britain and the whole world must understand that smaller government vastly increases societal wealth for all, as new research shows. Trust in free markets not failed bureaucrats
Hinkley, Heathrow, HS2? It would be a very brave government that swept away all these. It would need to have ready a good list of other projects that could be smarter and yield better returns, with realistic and quicker deadlines for undertaking them
HS2 is an analogue solution in a digital world. It is corporatist waste gone mad. The 50 billion the government is about to flush down the toilet should be spent on giving us a free, comprehensive internet architecture that's the eny of the world
Feminism was long ago hijacked by the Left. But if you concentrate on measures that help or harm women in the real world, you see statist policies ostensibly designed to help, often do more harm than good

You almost have to feel sorry for statists when they fumble, stumble, duck, and weave when asked why global evidence time and again shows that more free markets and lest statism dramatically raises prosperity for all
There are good reasons why Americans rate Ronald Reagan as the best post-War president and Barack Obama the worst. One is that Obama's big government polices have entrenched poverty; Reagan's market approach brought prosperity. Lessons?
Libertarianism doesn't mean life is a free for all. Values matter as much to libertarians as anyone else. But libertarianism does mean that you don't get dictated to by the state. And the problem with that is?
