The rise of mass poverty

Written by | Thursday 13 October 2011

Poverty is on the march.  The “we’re all doomed” message still makes people giggle, but there is ample evidence that unless we U-turn our policies towards aspiration and wealth creation, very many of us will indeed be doomed to a steady increase in poverty for ever larger parts of the population. Yes, unless we change tack, many of those rioters will never ever be in work. I have no doubt that many will be fine – but then, even Sierra Leone has people who do more than just survive.

A libertarian's prayer

Written by | Sunday 18 September 2011

Our Hayek who art in heaven;
Hallowed be Thy Name;
Thy free markets come;
Individuals’ will be done on earth as it is in heaven;
Let us keep our daily bread;
And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us;
And lead us not into nannying;
But deliver us from socialism;
For Thine is the peace, and the freedom, and the creation of wealth, forever and ever.
