My favorite economist is Thomas Sowell.  Below gives you an idea of his philosophy.  For more, visit his website.

  • "Bailing out people who made ill-advised mortgages makes no more sense than bailing out people who lost their life savings in Las Vegas casinos."
  • "Despite a voluminous and often fervent literature on 'income distribution', the cold fact is that most income is not distributed:  It is earned."
  • "The first lesson of economics is scarcity:  There is never enough of anything to satisfy all those who want it.  The first lesson of politics is to disregard the first lesson of economics."
