Economics in One Lesson
By: Barry Belmont

In the coming weeks you’re going to be hearing all about the UNR Students for Liberty’s skirmishes with their student government (the ASUN). In fact, chances are you have already heard too much about it. But the reason we continue the fight, the reason we keep up the mockery is because ultimately it stands as our testament to the whole of human liberties. Sure, we focus a lot on the economic side of things, but that is only because economics is nothing short of human interactions.

And so ”The Lesson” bears repeating:

The art of economics consists in looking not merely at the immediate but at the longer effects of any act or policy; it consists in tracing the consequences of that policy not merely for one group but for all groups.

Unfortunately, most everyone who dibbles and dabbles in political power (like the ASUN) forgets either the long term effects or the fact that what applies for one group affects the status of all others. However, through each of these little tiffs and mini-antagonisms, we will reveal the warped logic of those who fail to learn The Lesson and how they can leave nothing but liberties destroyed in their wake.
