Moderna Says Its Booster Shot Is Effective Against Omicron

Liberty Unyielding - Mon, 12/20/2021 - 6:28pm

By Dylan Hausman Moderna announced Monday that its booster dose of COVID-19 vaccine can increase antibody levels by 37-fold and maintains efficacy against the Omicron variant.

Chile Election Week, Part V: Another “Leftist Savior”

Center for Freedom and Prosperity (CF&P) - Mon, 12/20/2021 - 12:09pm

I warned a few days ago that Gabirel Boric would be bad news if he won Chile’s presidential election. Well, he won, and now we’re going to find out whether he will repeal the policies that made the country successful.

He definitely seems to be another “leftist savior,” as described in this video.

At best, Chile has elected someone as bad as Kirchner in Argentina.

The worst-case scenario is that Boric will be an utter disaster, like Chavez or Maduro from Venezuela.

If you want more details about the election results, Las Últimas Noticias put together this helpful graphic.

I had predicted a 54-46 Boric victory, but these results are even worse.

But what’s really depressing is that Latin America – and the world – is going to lose a role model.

Chile was already declining because of the soft leftism of two recent presidents, Michelle Bachelet and Sebastián Piñera, and it seems almost certain that this degeneration will accelerate as Boric pushes a hard-left agenda.

I’m especially worried about damage to the nation’s system of personal retirement accounts.

I’ll close with a personal observation that people sometimes challenge me to point out successful libertarian nations.

I have traditionally responded by stating that there’s no such thing as a pure libertarian country, but that we have some great success stories if we focus on comparative policy.

Sadly, I can’t really use Hong Kong as an example any more, and now it looks like I’ll have to drop Chile off my list. So my fingers are crossed that nothing bad happens to SwitzerlandEstoniaNew Zealand, or Singapore!

Study favoring masks in schools is junk science, researchers say

Liberty Unyielding - Mon, 12/20/2021 - 11:11am

A study touted by federal officials to require wearing masks in schools is complete garbage, experts say. Whether masks are helpful or not, the study was so badly designed that it proved absolutely nothing. In September, Rochelle Walensky, the director of the Centers for Disease Control, peddled the results of a study that seemed to […]

Progressives masquerade as Republicans or Libertarians

Liberty Unyielding - Sun, 12/19/2021 - 4:29pm

Many progressives or Democrats pretend in the media to be “lifelong Republicans,” conservatives, or libertarians. They do this despite being hostile to the free market, and being registered Democrats or Democratic voters. As think-tank leader John Hinderaker points out, “It happens all the time in talk radio: a caller will say that he is a […]

Chile Election Week, Part IV: What’s at Stake in Today’s Vote?

Center for Freedom and Prosperity (CF&P) - Sun, 12/19/2021 - 12:55pm

Greetings from Santiago. Chileans vote today for a new president and there’s a risk that a Venezuelan-style leftist, Gabriel Boric, will prevail.

And that puts at risk the economic progress described in this video.

The video has a good discussion of Chile’s very successful system of private pensions (which will be in danger if Boric wins).

But it also points out how free trade helped create the prosperity of modern Chile.

And that narrative is confirmed by looking at Chile’s score from the Fraser Institute’s Economic Freedom of the World.

I’m always happy to sing the praises of free trade and condemn protectionism, but let’s keep the focus on today’s election in Chile and why it matters.

That’s why this tweet tells you everything you need to know.

Notice how Chile began to prosper after it began to shift to free markets around 1980 and notice how Venezuela began to fall after it shifted to statism starting around 2000.

Notwithstanding all this evidence, Boric is favored to win today’s election. Which would be a vote for national economic suicide – perhaps akin to the British people voting for the pro-nationalization Labour Party after World War II (described in this video, for those interested).

I hope I’m wrong, both about the results of the election and the potential changes to economic policy if Boric prevails.

P.S. If you’ve enjoyed my Chilean election coverage, I did the same thing a couple of years ago in the United Kingdom (see herehereherehere, and here).

Biden subsidizes industry his administration calls greedy, saying it ripped off the American people

The Biden administration gave $600 million in special taxpayer subsidies to an industry that it denounces as greedy.

Parent-Led Rebellion Against Wokeness in Virginia Was Led By Minority Parents

By Diana Glebova Democrats and their media allies were nearly unanimous: The Republican upset in the November Virginia gubernatorial election was a result of white supremacy. It’s a common tune, one that more sober voices — even on the left — immediately dismissed for a more nuanced reality. The numbers following the election revealed something Democrats […]
