Unocal and the London Bombing

The New Yorker is the last place one would expect to find hard-core, free market rhetoric. But several months back (May 2, 2005), it carried an article by James Surowiecki, on the relative UNimportance of oil to the U.S. economy, that sounded like David Henderson could have written it.

And now in the current issue (July 11 & 18, 2005), Surowiecki has written the best defense of allowing the Chinese to buy Unocal that I have seen. Check it out on p. 40.

Check out the following Neva Chonin column, entitled"London Calling," from the pink pages (entertainment section) of this past Sunday's San Francisco Chronicle.

Its comparison of U.S. and British responses to terrorism contains a lot of truth.
