Quick Hits for February 15

Kudlow on Obama; the real national debt; Julian Simon; free trade


1) This one will leave a mark. Larry Kudlow, an official friend of the CapCom blog, paints Barack Obama as a "big-government bureaucrat who would take us down the wrong economic road."

2) Right on! Fund guru Kurt Brouwer at the Fundmastery blog has a great post on all the assets our kids will inherit, such as highways and parks and natural resources. This is something those "national debt calculators" ignore.

3) Over at the fine Carpe Diem blog, econ Prof. Mark Perry updates the famous Julian Simon bet on falling commodity prices.

4) A new search tool over at the Cato Institute site allows users to easily track the trade records of members of Congress. Open trade is the foundation of global growth, folks.
