Outside the Box: Networks and Hierarchies

  I have a big-picture piece for you today from a big-time thinker, my good friend Niall Ferguson. This is a little bit different for Outside the Box, but then isn’t that what this letter is supposed to be? Something to make us think and to come at a problem with a little bit different […]

Beer, Bears, and a Canoe: Your Guide to Lower Travel Costs

Leisure was last weekend’s theme, I spent it in a canoe—a cheap and energy-efficient way to see the Everglades, though not at all speedy. That was fine—I just wanted to see alligators in their natural habitat, enjoy a frosty beverage with good company, and return to the city with my limbs intact. My nature-sighting report: […]

What Casey Research Staff Are Buying This Summer

I ran across a business show last week that advertised that its guests would give out stock picks. That piqued my curiosity, so I watched to see what they would recommend.

Thoughts from the Frontline: Can Central Planners Revive China’s Economic Miracle?

  For years, when asked whether I thought China would experience a hard landing, I would simply answer, “I don’t understand China. Making a prediction would be pretending that I did, so I can’t.” The problem is that today China is the most significant macroeconomic wildcard in the global economy.

How to Die in Dignity Without Leaving Your Spouse to Starve

We’d all been waiting for the big day, but the chapel the ceremony took place in was very small—just a room with Christian symbols and a few chairs. My wife Jo’s father was waiting for us in his hospital bed, grinning from ear to ear. Despite the feeding tube, he still managed to devour a […]
