Bitcoin – the online currency used to buy Alpaca wool socks and illegal drugs whose value dropped from $17.50 to “pennies” after a June 19 hack into its currency exchanger, Mt.Gox –has gotten plenty of media attention. But unless consumers and merchants can be persuaded that adopting it will make them better off, it’s likely to go the way of other online currencies.

Corporate Personhood, Limited Liability, and Double Taxation

http://www.libertarianstandard.com

The big objection to corporations is usually limited liability for shareholders. Now first let me mention that many non-attorney critics of this notion seem confused about what it means (and many attorneys also misapprehend it). They think the doctrine insulates a tortfeasor from liability even if he was negligent, so long as he is a shareholder. Or that the doctrine exempts managers and officers of the corporation from liability for torts of others. They are wrong.

Who protests for more authority?

http://www.examiner.com

In every instance, I side with the People on the street, even when unpopular, against the seemingly obvious shared enemy: any and all authority backed by force.

Herman Cain Gets An Economics Lesson From A New Hampshire Voter

http://abcnews.go.com

CONCORD, N.H. — “I can tell you in New Hampshire people don’t like sales tax,” a diner eating lunch in a Concord restaurant told the former Godfather’s Pizza CEO. “Don’t confuse the New Hampshire sales tax with this because you’re going to have to pay that anyway,” Cain said.

But the man quickly corrected the presidential candidate: “New Hampshire doesn’t have a sales tax.” “Don’t mix the two,” Cain insisted. “Some people say, well we don’t want a sales tax. It’s not a state sales tax.”
