Over the years, Seraphic Secret has made many friends through cyberspace.
One of the earliest readers and commenters at this blog was Jake Novak, an intellectually curious and honest liberal. Convinced over time by our Conservative arguments, he has evolved into a passionate and articulate spokesman for Conservative values.
Now an executive producer of the excellent Kudlow Report on CNBC, Jake has made it his business to emphasize the organic link between the free market and man’s liberty, and the tyranny that is the regulatory state.
Jake is also a deeply committed and scholarly Jew—his father is a distinguished rabbi—and a fierce defender of Zion. Though he works behind the scenes at CNBC, his intellectual prowess is a major driver of CNBC’s business reportage.
Jake has kindly given us permission to repost his latest article about the huge economic strides being made in Israel.
