Written by Gary North on February 6, 2016

David Stockman uses the most antagonistic rhetoric against Keynesians that I have ever read. He is merciless. He gives no quarter. That’s why I love to read his articles. Here is a good one. It is on the world’s central bankers, who have driven down interest rates to zero, and have thereby sacrificed the interests […]

Written by Gary North on February 6, 2016

I am a conservative. I am a conservative by way of three phenomena that have linked together American conservatives since about 1920: (1) anti-Communism; (2) free market economics; (3) conservative social theory. I regard the most important world figure of the 20th century as Vladimir Lenin. Had it not been for the assassination of the […]

Written by Gary North on February 6, 2016

smokestacks

We have been told that America’s “smokestack industries” are threatened, and that this nation is losing its competitive abilities in the field of heavy manufacturing. I am sure this analysis is correct. Now, why am I supposed to worry about this? Let me ask you a question. Are you worried about America’s loss of competitive […]

By Rev. Francis Mahaffy The Ten Commandments given by Moses many centuries ago reveal the divine rule that covers man’s relation to his God, to his fellow man, and to the things of God’s creation.

Written by Gary North on February 6, 2016

exemption

The fat is now in the fire. A group has taken the Catholic Church into Federal court to protest its tax exemption. The reason? The Church has taken a public stand against abortion. The abortion issue is political, and therefore involves legislation, the plaintiffs assert. The Internal Revenue Code says that tax-exempt organizations that are […]

Every January, the richest people in the world get together to meet at Davos, Switzerland, at the world economic forum. Also present are the best and the brightest in the Keynesian community, whose plane fares and hotel rooms are taken care of. These are the hired hands. Every year, everyone hopes he is going to […]

Does the Bible have answers for the challenges of Keynesianism, socialism, liberation theology, and Jim Wallis? Yes. Desperate cries for liberation sound around the globe. Oppression, injustice, and abject need pockmark every continent and every nation. Quite naturally, the Leftists rush in to exploit the discontent with promises of liberty and justice for all. Sadly, […]

Most people believe that second rate performance is fine, and third-rate performance is acceptable. I do not, and I never have. The more important your cause is to you, the more important you think your cause should be to the world. If you represent your cause in a second rate way, you are doing your […]

ownership

Thou shalt not remove thy neighbour’s landmark, which they of old time have set in thine inheritance, which thou shalt inherit in the land that the Lord thy God giveth thee to possess it (Deuteronomy 19:14). The first principle of a Biblical covenant is transcendence. God is the Creator. How does this apply to man […]
