Nock's adage that if a teaspoonful of arsenic won't cure you then a tablespoon is required relative to the unemployment rate and measures to stimulate economic health comes to mind in view of the 10.2% rate. Amazingly no leaks were visible on Thursday during the day or on Friday before the number in fixed income or equities. Indeed German fixed income was down before the number.

Nock enthusiast Jeff Watson explains:

Such luminaries as William F. Buckley Jr. have used Nock's ideas as the genesis of their political views. I have assembled a series of full downloads of his works from various sources for your reading pleasure.
