This morning, Vox Day, who makes his living as a video game designer, posted an interview with Mr. Hannan. By way of a preview, an excerpt from the interview:
Day: Who are your intellectual influences with regards to economics? Do you go all the way back to Smith?
Hannan: Absolutely, I'm a very traditional Brit like this. I've got two busts in my office. One is Adam Smith, the other is Thomas Jefferson.
I'm not sure Jefferson would qualify as a traditional Brit, but I've got to like this guy. He sounds like my kind of journalist.
