IN BRIEF

Stimulus Hasn’t Lived Up to Its Billing

FEBRUARY 18, 2011

“A bill to jump start the economy. That was the main idea behind the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, better known as the ‘stimulus bill,’ which became law two years ago today. However, the nation is still waiting for the bill’s promised jolt.” (CNN)

Another broken promise.

CURRENT ISSUE

April 2014

Around the world, people are struggling to throw off authoritarianism, with deeply mixed results. From Egypt to Venezuela, determined people build networks to overthrow their regimes, but as yet we have not learned to live without Leviathan. In this issue, Michael Malice and Gary Dudney discuss their glimpses inside totalitarian regimes, while Sarah Skwire and Michael Nolan look at how totalitarian regimes grind down the individual--and how individuals fight back. Plus, Jeffrey Tucker identifies a strain in libertarianism that, left unchecked, could reduce even our vibrant movement to something that is analogous to the grim aesthetic of architectural brutalism. The struggle for our lives and freedom is a struggle for beauty; it begins inside each of us.
