The Most Expensive Disaster? – The Daily Dish | By Andrew Sullivan

This post bothered me because in listing the worst disasters from an economic point of view on a list of about 15 it didn’t include the 2004 tsunami in Indonesia.  This was attributed to low property value.  That may be factually correct, but I suspect the economic loss as a percent of wealth or income in a poor nations would have ranked it much higher.  The ranking seemed a little wealthy centric to me.

A new blog explores the world of Bleeding Heart Libertarians. Matt Zwolinski created the blog as “a forum for academic philosophers who are attracted both to libertarianism and to ideals of social or distributive justice.” He has attracted a top-notch group of collaborators, and the first two weeks of operation has produced a torrent of thoughtful posts and some pretty good comments as well.

As Steve Horwitz has said, “This blog is quickly becoming a must read.”
