Reason Writers Around Town: Doherty vs. Henwood in a Bloody Final Round

|

At the Los Angeles Times, reason's Brian Doherty and the Left Business Observer's Doug Henwood wind up their duel over federal monetary policy and debt issues. Read it here.

From Doherty's conclusion:

Whether or not you agree that monetary and debt policies we've been hashing over risk ultimate crisis and collapse, as I fear they might, they and the government power and resource grabs to which they lead limit the spaces where we can make our own choices about our lives and the world around us. They ensure that more of those decisions are made—and more of our and our children's money is spent—the way a small gang of people in Washington and their friends want, not as Doug, or I, or you might want. And that's always worth worrying about.
