A Decade! Looking Back on 10 Years of Bryan Caplan Marketing (And It’s My Birthday 😉)

10 Years! It feels like I just started this whole thing yesterday. I remember clearly how I signed my first client for $100 and some sandwiches in return for 20 hours a month (no joke!) If you'd asked me where I'd be in 10 years, I couldn't have imagined I'd be here, doing what I love every single day while helping small business owners to further their passion.

Shirley Robin Letwin e le "vigorose virtù" dell’individualismo liberale – Alberto Mingardi

Questa settimana restiamo in Inghilterra, ma dal Settecento di Mary Astell passiamo alla seconda metà del Novecento e, più precisamente, alla controversa stagione politica predominata dalla figura di Margaret Thatcher (1925-2013), la Iron Lady che governò ininterrottamente il Regno Unito dal 1979 al 1990, imprimendo più in generale il proprio marchio su un’intera fase della più recente storia anglosassone. Tra i principali protagonisti intellettuali...

Government Can’t Replace Entrepreneurs | Guests: Deirdre McCloskey and Alberto Mingardi | Ep 98

Economists Deirdre McCloskey and Alberto Mingardi sit down with Matt Kibbe to discuss their new book, “The Myth of the Entrepreneurial State.” In everything from pandemic management and trade agreements to public investment in art and science, we see again and again that the government is no substitute for the spontaneous order of motivated and visionary entrepreneurs. People tend to assume that government action will be more effective because it’s organized by experts and...
