    Policy analysts, academics and journalists lament the influence of money on politics. But in the political economy, politicians often carefully design regulations so that two very different interest groups will be satisfied: “bootleggers,” who seek private benefits, and “Baptists,” who seek to serve the public interest, must both support the regulation. Economists Adam Smith and Bruce Yandle apply the theory to a wide range of current issues, including the financial crisis, Obamacare and environmental regulation.

    Can you see the Pretty Things?There are many things that Rory would like to forget about his childhood growing up in rural Arkansas. He’d like to forget his alcoholic father or absent mother. He’d like to forget about his ex-girlfriend, now married to his ex-best friend. Sometimes, he’d even like to forget about his older brother Joe. Joe saw the world differently than other people--sometimes in beautiful ways, seeing what he always called “the Pretty Things.” But sometimes the Pretty Things turned ugly and bad things happened. Those are the things Rory wishes he could forget most of all.When his car breaks down on the side of the road just out of town, a young girl named Sylvia appears from the corn fields. Sylvia is a Valkyrie sent by the Norse god Odin to deliver Rory to Valhalla. Because today is the day he’s going to die. Together, Rory and Sylvia walk back through the memories of Rory’s childhood, this time seeing them the way Joe saw them. Rory must face the Pretty Things, the Ugly Things, and all the real life in between before it’s time to say goodbye.

    The Wealth of Nations is a treasured classic of political economy. First published in March of 1776, Adam Smith wrote the book to influence a special audience - the British Parliament - and its arguments in the early spring of that year pressed for peace and cooperation with Britain's colonies rather than war. Smith's message was that economic exploitation, through the monopoly trade of empire, stifled wealth-creation in both home and foreign lands. Moreover, protectionism preserved the status quo, and privileged a few elites at the expense of long run growth. Smith wrote, "It is the industry which is carried on for the benefit of the rich and the powerful that is principally encouraged by our mercantile system. That which is carried on for the benefit of the poor and the indigent is too often either neglected or oppressed."
