Blogger Bernanke's Abundance of Caution

bloombergview.com — Ben Bernanke, a think-tanker who has for some reason rapidly moved into the top rank of economics bloggers, has written a post that seems destined to be influential. It's about various proposals to reform monetary policy. He's open-minded about the proposals: He says there's nothing "magical" about the 2 percent inflation target that the Fed formally adopted in 2012.

Ponnuru: There's no shortage of bad Social Security fixes

denverpost.com — Posted: 04/17/2015 03:42:23 PM MDT Updated: 04/17/2015 03:44:37 PM MDT Social Security Works, a left-wing group, was quick on the draw. Within an hour of Sen. Marco Rubio's announcement that he was running for president, it issued a news release attacking him: "If Senator Marco Rubio had his way, Social Security's very modest benefits, averaging just $1,330 a month for retired workers, would be cut."

National Review

nationalreview.com — The editors of the New York Times write that "the rage of the Republican establishment toward [Obama] is growing louder, angrier and more destructive." And "it is impossible to dismiss the notion that race plays a role in it." I'm sure they tried really hard. They cite two alleged manifestations of this rage.

Ponnuru: Paul won't change the Republican Party

sltrib.com — Paul has shifted most on national-security issues. Last summer, he switched from skepticism to enthusiasm about bombing Islamic State militants. In March, he signed a letter from Republican senators warning Iran's leaders that any nuclear deal they agreed to might not outlast Barack Obama's presidency.

Elizabeth Warren Is Wrong About Social Security

bloombergview.com — Social Security has a long-term funding gap that just keeps growing. Neither political party has a plan to pay for the promises we've already made to people contributing to the system. But Democrats are bringing a new idea to the table: make even more promises.
