FPR readers should certainly check out the American Conservative today. First, they have a new essay up by Dermot Quinn on the relationship of Wilhelm Ropke’s ideas to the current economic crisis. And Sean Scallon’s piece on Jimmy Carter’s inaptly titled malaise speech, which has occasioned much favorable comment among other bloggers (including below by Russell Arben Fox), has been picked up by the New York Times as its idea of the day. (Thanks to TAC senior editor Dan McCarthy for bringing these new links to my attention.)
By the way, if you’re interested, a few years ago I wrote about Christopher Lasch’s rather interesting relationship to the Carter speech here. You might be surprised to learn that Lasch wasn’t all that happy with it.
