    Default For SIR - Thomas Sowell

    Not knowing whether or not you’re familiar with one of America’s preeminent economists, here is a link to several discussions with Dr. Thomas Sowell. I think many are particularly relevant to a lot of the questions you’ve been contemplating (based on the threads you’ve started).

    I also selected one particular video I think still describes the problems of today’s political battlefields.

    The most interesting thing about this man is that no one had heard of him until President Obama came on the scene. Once that happened old white republicans "discovered" the good doctor and he became a household name. I find it curious...

    That's laughably ridiculous, and merely demonstrates your own ignorance. He's been on the public stage since the Reagan era, and even testified at the Bork nomination. He was a prolific writer for decades, has impeccable academic credentials, and was often featured on TV (usually with Milton Friedman and William F. Buckley).

    You must be kidding. How could you not have heard of Thomas Sowell? I don't consider myself well informed or read but even I have heard of Thomas Sowell.

    Oh yes, Thomas Sowell is well known. His personal history is an inspiration.
