Happy 88th birthday to Thomas Sowell, one of the greatest living economists
AEIcdeas ^ | June 30, 2018 | Mark J. Perry

[T]here is no economist alive today who has done more to eloquently, articulately, and persuasively advance the principles of economic freedom, limited government, individual liberty, and a free society than Thomas Sowell. In terms of both his quantity of work (at least 45 books and several thousand newspaper columns) and the consistently excellent and crystal-clear quality of his writing, I don’t think any living free-market economist even comes close to matching Sowell’s prolific record.

Sowell predicted the current immigration situation.

He detailed how the United States accepts immigrants until it reaches a saturation point, at which point, the population rebels, and the U.S. shuts down immigration for a couple of generations while it assimilates those it has allowed in.

He has some reservations on Trump but clearly and was documented to have favored Trump over Hillary.

So take your lying a$$ back to DU where it belongs.

Here, here.

Downloaded most of his books on tape and listened to them. Nothing dry about them at all, and the publisher used the very best vocal talent available in the world outside James Earl Jones.

Unfortunately, to the likes of Waters, Obama and all their followers Mr. Sowell (and Clarence Thomas, Walter Williams, Allen West, Tim Scott and so many more) is nothing but a Tom.

I have not listened to his books, only read them. It would be a good idea for a long trip, though!

Huh? GOPe phony Sowell had more than just “some reservations” on Trump...

Sowell revealed himself to be a huge RINO who supported lying, phony Tea Partier - Canadian Ted Cruz.

SOWELL: CHOSE TRUMP HE’S MUCH EASIER TO IMPEACH (OCT. 2016)

https://www.eastbaytimes.com/2016/10/28/sowell-choose-trump-hes-much-easier-to-impeach/

Note the date on this article.... ONE WEEK BEFORE THE ELECTION.

Please don’t try to rehabilitate Sowell with stupid Rove-era tactics of pushing freaky RINOs down our throats because they happen to be registered Republicans.

Also, is Sowell a mason? It would explain his queasy doublemindedness in backing such an obvious fake like Cruz, which is of course a sin for actual Christians.

He supported Trump AFTER the nomination much like many INCLUDING ME.

That does not make a person a “Never Trumper” And it is a blatant lie to call him that as it would be anyone who didn’t support Trump from the day he entered the priamries.
