Warren Meyer’s Coyote Blog

Warren is a small businessman who comes to libertarianism more from the economic world than the political. But he’s filled a void in my morning reading that used to be filled by den Beste. Warren writes thoughtful essays that give me something to ponder.

One of the better essays recently is on Physics, Wealth Creation and Zero Sum Economics, in which he spends a good long time explaining why economics is not a zero-sum-game. This seems to be something that many forget, especially those who want to “redistribute” wealth. The fact that someone becomes richer does not mean that others have to become poorer. In fact, it usually works the opposite way. It may take running a business to make this clear (it did for me), but it’s a big deal, and having someone like Warren, who takes the time to explain things, improves things. Go read him.
