Unocal and the London Bombing
The New Yorker is the last place one would expect to find hard-core, free market rhetoric. But several months back (May 2, 2005), it carried an article by James Surowiecki, on the relative UNimportance of oil to the U.S. economy, that sounded like David Henderson could have written it.
