Vote for me. Mickey Kaus, Huffington Post. I would if I could. (Watch the video.)

Economic growth and institutional reform. William Galston, Brookings. Essential reading, but…

The question is whether we will be able to adopt the needed changes in an atmosphere of reflection and deliberation, or whether we will delay until a worse crisis compels us to act.

Unfortunately, I think I know the answer.

The future of America’s (white) working class. Joel Kotkin, NewGeography. The danger of British disease (thanks A&L).

Sympathy deformed. Theodore Dalrymple, City Journal. Further lessons from Britain (and Tanzania).

How to save the newspaper business. PJ O’Rourke, Weekly Standard.

What I propose is “Pre-Obituaries”—official notices that certain people aren’t dead yet accompanied by brief summaries of their lives indicating why we wish they were.

I have been the FT's Washington columnist since April 2007. I moved from Britain to the US in 2005 to write for the Atlantic Monthly and the National Journal after 20 years working at the Economist, most recently as deputy editor. I write mainly about the intersection of politics and economics.
