  1. Question for those more abreast than me: do conservatives or libertarians have an equivalent of Nancy MacLean? All sides have irresponsible pseudo-scholars, but how often do the various camps launch one of them to undue prominence instead of just ignoring them?

    • I think Murray Rothbard. I acknowledge Rothbard’s contribution to the libertarian movement, but when I read over his work, especially his historical work, it’s clear that he was more an activist than academic. I think Rothbard’s fame is mostly contained to the Internet though.

    • Conceived in liberty and the panic of 1819 and his history of economic thought all solid works. Adam Smith had plenty of critics.

      The great depression is a reasonable book as well.

      Which book are you pointing to was his worst as a work of history
