Looking Towards a Productive, Robotic Future

pexels luis j 2085831

One argument against the idea of technological unemployment, offered by many people who today sincerely style themselves as leading defenders of the free market, goes that automation will create more jobs than it destroys but due to the nature of the market, the nature of those jobs is, if not fundamentally unknowable, functionally indescribable for the purposes of the argument over automation. How could a person a hundred years ago, the reasoning goes, predict the existence of jobs like “app developer,” “nuclear engineer,” or “diversity and inclusion consultant”? The jobs of the future...

TGIF: That Old Minimum-Wage Magic

fast food

You don't have to actually think that legislating and raising the minimum wage will help low-skilled workers earn more money. That's not the point. The point is to display your correct political religion. Today favoring stepping the minimum wage up to $15 an hour is part of the so-called progressive dogma, or civic religion. Progressives who oppose $15 would likely have their credentials questioned or yanked. They would be branded heretics on Twitter. And religiously minded people, even if the religion is secular, rarely like heretics. They must be rooted out, shamed, and if possible,...

How Not To Argue Against the Minimum Wage

Minimum Wage

Among the hotly contested list of Joe Biden’s promises is an increase of the federal minimum wage to $15 an hour. There are plenty of sound reasons to oppose government minimum wage laws, but there is one objection making the rounds that is based on bad economics and should be avoided, and that’s the “businesses will pass on the costs to consumers, making cheap goods more expensive” objection. For instance, a now-deleted tweet by someone claiming that a $15 an hour minimum wage will cause Taco Bell burritos to explode in costs was shot down in short order by the tweet below. Scrolling...

The Moral and Economic Case Against the Minimum Wage #FightAgainst15

Minimum Wage

https://youtu.be/I5CJv00aojU Minimum wage laws tragically generate unemployment, especially so among the poorest and least skilled or educated workers... a minimum wage, of course, does not guarantee any worker’s employment; it only prohibits, by force of law, anyone from being employed at the wage which would pay his employer to hire him. It therefore compels unemployment. Murray N. Rothbard For a New Liberty, p. 196...

How Glenn Beck, The Iraq Wars, Jason Brennan, & Ron Paul Turned A Progressive Into A Libertarian

https://youtu.be/--o_9bgIbMU Free-market capitalism, the victory of social power and the economic means, is not only the only moral and by far the most productive system; it has become the only viable system for mankind in the industrial era. Its eventual triumph is therefore virtually inevitable. Murray N. Rothbard Economic Controversies, p. 682 The excellent book I forgot to credit was When All Else Fails: The Ethics of Resistance to State Injustice by Jason Brennan.

What ‘Experts’ Miss About Economic Inequality

Pexels Lukas 590020

How can the U.S. reduce economic inequality? That’s a question USA Today posed to three “policy experts on the left and the right” in this recent article. The responses, while unsurprising, were nevertheless disappointing. For libertarians, economic inequality itself is not problematic, as long as it is in the context of an unfettered market economy free of government privileges and interference. Of course, that’s not what we have. But instead of advocating for a more free economy to address inequality, the “experts” consulted by USA Today advocate for more state interference that would...

Debunking Marx’s ‘Iron Law of Wages’

Marx And Engels

Does a competitive, free market capitalist system drive down wages for the common man? That’s the question I was confronted with in a recent exchange I had with a Marxist on Twitter. My original post stated that “Free, competitive markets don’t drive down worker wages, as Marx argued.” “Instead,” the post continued, “markets drive up wages because entrepreneurs must bid against one another to acquire and retain the workers they need.” This led me to my ultimate point that “government intervention that limits competition will repress wages.” The take home point, of course, was to...

How to Care about the Disadvantaged

You may be in the presence of mere virtue-signalers if they: wring their hands about police brutality without ever calling for repeal of all victimless-crime laws, which create a poisonous dynamic between police and public precisely because the conduct being policed is consensual for each party to the illegal transactions; bemoan the lack of growing black-family wealth without calling for the elimination of Social Security, which imposes a regressive tax to confiscate savings that would otherwise be heritable by the savers' children; lament the inadequate economic mobility of people in...
