On June 13th, the Manhattan Institute awarded the 13th annual Hayek Book Prize to Deirdre N. McCloskey for her book, Bourgeois Equality: How Ideas, Not Capital or Institutions, Enriched the World. Most people are stunningly better off than their ancestors. What produced the Great Enrichment of the past two centuries? Many factors played a role. Accumulated capital was necessary.

In Shakedown, he shows how this group continued its march all the way to the White House. Reason.tv's June Arunga sat down with Malanga to talk about how this coalition has pushed government at all levels to the brink of bankruptcy and what reforms are ne...
