Quote of the Day

by Pejman Yousefzadeh on July 21, 2011

If one of our children grows up to invent a way to move goods and bits of information even more rapidly around the world, we rightly call that ‘progress’; if another child grows up to become a populist politician who advocates raising trade barriers to slow the movement of those same goods and data across borders, we perversely call that “progressive.”

Daniel Griswold. (Via Don Boudreaux.)
