Steve Sailer on whites in the military. I’ve often thought that there seems to be an inverse relationship between an racial group’s predilection for violence on a daily basis and the group’s ability to wage war. For example, Germans don’t commit a lot of violent crimes, but they make for some badass soldiers.
In the comments, Handle some thoughts on Chinese monetary policy and "free trade" with China.
I don’t understand why economists love regular unions, but not public sector ones. Here’s The Economist:
The thing is, public-sector unions don’t work like this. They aren’t bargaining against capitalists for a fair cut of the cooperative surplus. They’re bargaining against everybody who pays taxes and/or benefits from government spending.
Why do they say that regular unions bargain against capitalists? It would be just as correct to say that they bargain against consumers. And there are more consumers than tax-payers.
