Mitt Romney, among others, suggested that Sony ought to release "The Interview," an R-rated comedy about an assassination attempt on North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un, online for free. The outrage over the hack of Sony's private information and the intimidation campaign that got the release of "The Interview" scuttled for a time led to quite a lot of heated rhetoric, with Newt Gingrich calling the whole incident an "act of war."

End Oil Protectionism

The politics of the crude exports issue are confused by a lot of irresponsible reporting. Almost every story on the issue asserts that allowing exports would be politically dangerous because it would supposedly raise prices at the pump, but the claim is never credibly sourced. In fact, every single serious study has found precisely the opposite: allowing crude exports would lower prices at the pump.

Farming January 2015 vs. January 1914 – Part 2

Last week's column briefly discussed some of the reasons for the large changes in agriculture over the last century. Drivers for change included two World Wars, the Great Depression, economic conditions after WWII, and the Federal Government. One reader pointed out that the column almost painted war as a good thing for agriculture. That wasn't the intent. The fact is the driver for change and the development of new techniques and technologies is typically an event or events forcing and accelerating change. Now, how did events change farming over the last century.
