Blogger Central



As some of you may know I work for Liberty Fund a non-profit foundation that sponsors a large publishing program and numerous conferences throughout the world on topics related to a free and responsible society. I'm a fellow at Liberty Fund (a more descriptive title might be conference or program officer) who helps coordinate 14 of our conferences each year.

Last weekend I was at one of our conferences directed by Tyler Cowen on the Blank Slate theory promoted by Steven Pinker in his well-known book on the topic. While I think the book leaves something to be desired, and I'm not at liberty to go into great detail about the discussion, I did think it was most interesting to link to the numerous bloggers that Tyler invited.

In no particular order, these folks all lean towards freedom politically and have a lot of good things to say. Tyler Cowen and Alex Tabarrok do a great job discussing how markets are promoting (or should be) freedom throughout the world in numerous ways. David Nishimura talks about art, markets, and history in a really refreshing way for those of us who are current affairs junkies. Randall Parker's Future Pundit gives his informed commentary on scientific news with a sympathetic view of markets. I don't always agree with Megan McArdle's alter ego Jane Galt, but she does make me think. Finally Dan Drezner's untenured perspective helps me sort through foreign policy. I recommend all of them highly.
