Dane Huffman, the managing editor of the Triangle Business Journal, is our Shaftesbury Society speaker next Monday. And Jeffrey Tucker’s “American Culture Has Become Unbearably Toxic” explains that the “only really sensible stuff” worth reading is business news. Tucker writes,
And so, what to read these days by way of news? The only really sensible stuff remaining is on the business pages, where reporters deal with real stuff like profits and losses, products and innovations, trends and trades. Commercial life is all that is left to us – a true sanctuary from the ghastly corruption of nearly all other sectors of American life.
Someone should introduce Mr. Tucker to Carolina Journal, which is also “really sensible stuff” worth reading.
In sum, I recommend attending Mr. Huffman’s talk on February 26 at noon, reading Tucker’s entire essay, and reading Carolina Journal.
