Why would a blog like this have commentary on economics and politics? Because this blog summarizes court decisions relating to business law and in order to understand the broader context of those cases, it is helpful to analyze the "big picture".

Thomas Sowell, a prolific and highly regarded economist, is one of my favorite "big picture" scholars and he recently wrote about economics and politics, including recent positions announced by presidential candidate Barack Obama, in an article to be found here. Thanks to  Tom Kirkendall of Houston’s Clear Thinker’s blog for the link.
