Is It Time For The Jews To Leave Europe? The Atlantic

Common Sense Commentary: The Atlantic, always notoriously liberal, does not disappoint here, but there is till some good information in this article, which like the one above, exposes the rampant anti-Semitic attitude that is sweeping Europe and would likely be headed here were it not for the election of Trump. For example, “In Greece, a recent survey found that 69 percent of adults hold anti-Semitic views, and the fascists of the country’s Golden Dawn party are open in their Jew-hatred…Violence against Jews in Western Europe today, according to those who track it, appears to come mainly from Muslims, who in France, the epicenter of Europe’s Jewish crisis, outnumber Jews 10 to 1.”

Our Miserable 21st Century, Nicholas N. Eberstadt, Commentary

Finance Is A Bridge To Our Future Selves: Brazil As A Case Study, Mark A. Calabria, Cato Institute; Quote: “Poor countries, contrary to popular myth, do not suffer any lack of financial regulation. On the contrary, they tend to have extensive regulatory structures consisting of numerous restrictions, particularly on credit terms…While the economics might seem obvious, what might be surprising is the positive association between freer financial markets and both democracy and personal freedoms.”

Another can’t put down, must-read.
