Witherspoon Institute

I thought this was going to turn out to be another of those groups that purported to be thoughtful and moderate but in the end offered up more sharing-via-government solutions with earnest looks that being a liberal - though a nice polite one - is really the only way.

But I was pleasantly surprised by "Great Recession: What Will You Tell Your Grandchild?" an essay from the Witherspoon Institute in Princeton, NJ, and the other things I found clicking around on the site.  Not sure my agreement is entire, but they have my respect.

I may post. for the moment, it is enough to say that he recites cliches. Most of them aren't untrue, but they don't tell us much. They could fit just about any vaguely Christian program.

I can't remember what post it was where we started commenting on Texas's economic performance, so here's a factoid:

"Only four metro areas in north america and Western europe—Houston, Dallas, Stuttgart, and Stockholm— managed to rank among the 40 strongest economies in 2010-2011. These developed metro economies exhibited a healthy diversity that buoyed their recent performance relative to regional peers, including expansion in high value commodities, manufacturing, and business and financial services sectors."
