About Clown Town

Welcome to Clown Town, the personal blog of Jason Kuznicki.

I’m a research fellow at the Cato Institute and the editor of Cato Unbound. I’m a classical liberal, a dynamist, a skeptic, and more or less a Bleeding Heart Libertarian. I’ve got a book coming out soon. My intellectual heroes include F. A. Hayek, Karl Popper, Ludwig von Mises, David Hume, and Adam Smith. I speak only for myself here, if you were wondering. Do not infer anything from my silences on any topic or issue. My writing here is not my full-time job, and I am not trying to be comprehensive.

The ridiculous name is an homage to Cordwainer Smith’s classic story The Dead Lady of Clown Town, which is not ridiculous at all. It’s unbelievably beautiful, and you should all go and read it immediately.

One thought on “About Clown Town

  1. There used to be a real place called Clow Town USA back in the late 60′ -early 70’s. There was no dead lady there and no “creepy clowns”. It was an amusement park(in the works),petting zoo,and (believe it or not ) a Free Campground. It was located 12 miles south of Pueblo,Colo. All the buildings were A-frames. I know this because my Father owned the 27 acres it was situated on.
