ROGER KIMBALL: Niall Ferguson Cleans House On His Critics. “I said that I found Ferguson’s analysis damning. So, I gather, did the Left. For out of those mephitic swamps of ‘progressive’ animus has risen a great cloud of anguished repudiation. It’s a violent, unpleasant, and ultimately unconvincing display, but it is certainly full of angry pathos. It has already elicited from Ferguson a long, detailed, and utterly deadly point-by-point reply, which is as entertaining as it is authoritative.”
