Once again, climate change was a big issue in the libertarian blogosphere. Jennifer Marohasy notes the Rudd 5% commitment and discusses the role of oceans in climate change, we hear that Al Gore says the arctic may disapear, Jim Fryar gives the facts of stranded polar bears, Tim Wilson looks at the climate policy & free trade, while Andrew Norton looks at climate change in the media.
Andrew Norton keeps an eye on the voucher debate, and concludes that the Bradley higher education reports undermines their voucher proposal by failing to fix the price signals. Sinclair Davidson also isn’t impressed.
Australia’s libertarian political party got it’s name back, and Jim Fryar posts a speech done by LDP Treasurer David Leyonhjelm on guns. Also on guns, Jason Soon noted the modest relaxation of gun laws in NSW. And more on politics… Sukrit Sabhlok explores the links between libertarians and the left, and Amir Butler points out that Bush’s legacy is statism.
Back on the economic crisis, Stephen Kirchner looks at the role of Lehman Brothers in the US collapse while Alan Moran objects to the spending policies of Kevin Rudd. And over at Online Opinion, Justin Jefferson blames the economic troubles on government, not capitalism.
