An interesting discussion of culture, sports, character and masculinity.

As a fan of both Stephen Colbert and the Citizen’s United decision, I appreciated this take on Colbert’s running gag/critique of the electoral system. The real problem in politics is not the money, but the scope of government oversight. If members of congress had less power, they would not be targets of lobbying, and elections would mean less.

On a recent Econtalk, Russ discusses ethics and the moral foundations of economic behavior with David Rose–a stimulating episode.

Ron Paul fans, take heart!
