Moving Left Isn't Right

Moving Left Isn’t Right

Written in a time filled with the gasps and death of the Soviet Union, and its satellites’ declarations of their independence, I found Alvin Rabushka’s “The Failure of Socialism in China” capturing my attention. In it, the author mentions the method that Mao Zedong attempted to use to incite the communist Chinese economy to grow – […]

The lies of free trade proponents

In his SOTU speech, Barack Obama announced that his Administration is (unconstitutionally and thus illegally) negotiating trade agreements with the EU and countries of the Pacific Rim. Free trade proponents – including Iain Murray of the pseudoconservative American Spectator – applauded him, as they are ideologically aligned with him. In defense of their (and his) […]

Free trade is for idiots

For decades, globalists and libertarian free trade ideologues have been telling us that free trade has been “good” for America, that it’s a traditional conservative/Republican policy, and that any suggestion that America should protect its industry – i.e. protectionism – is a Big Government policy and a betray of “free market principles”. Free trade is […]

Hippienomics

Hippienomics

The spirit of free love — and free stuff — has hit the United States, and let’s all wallow in the glory of an economy where that’s the only thing one can afford to do is love. The spiritual masturbation of sitting around in a circle smoking a peace pipe and slapping tambourines, imagining everyone’s […]

President Obama Decrees 19 Laws of Economics

President Obama Decrees 19 Laws of Economics

President Obama decreed the following 19 laws of economics: Everyone should get everything for free without paying for it.

If someone forces others to […]

Citing unfunded pension liabilities, high debt and slow to moderate growth the rating agency also changed it’s outlook for Pennsylvania from negative to stable.

The Case For Free Enterprise

What is Free Enterprise? Is it moral? What about sharing the wealth? Isn’t that more fair? Arthur Brooks from the American Enterprise Institute created a short video arguing the moral case for free enterprise. The clever use of hand drawn characters will keep the interest of those raised in the video age. Watch it and […]

VOODOO Food Economics

VOODOO Food Economics

The USDA, in trying to increase participation in the SNAP or food stamp program, claims that for every dollar transferred to beneficiaries a dollar and seventy-two cents in economic activity is generated. If we were to follow this mushy thinking to it’s logical conclusion, then if we all quit our jobs, closed our businesses and […]

Will Obama Learn From Sweden?

Will Obama Learn From Sweden?

 Have you ever heard of Anders Borg? He has a ponytail and wears an earring. He is an economist. He is also the finance minister of Sweden. When Sweden’s prime minister Fredrik Reinfeldt became party leader in 2003, he made Borg his right-hand man. Since becoming Sweden’s finance minister, Borg reduced the size of government […]

The End is Near

Welcome to the beginning of the end of the economic recovery. On Tuesday diesel fuel was $4.49 per gallon along interstate route 81 in New York State! The price of fuel is rapidly approaching what Malcolm Gladwell would call the “tipping point”. Diesel fuel hit a peak of $4.72 per gallon in July of 2008. […]

Bloomberg TV is an Actual Channel: GOP Economic Debate Recap

Tuesday night saw the latest GOP debate as the Washington Post teamed up with Bloomberg TV (it’s a channel; I looked it up) to present the first exclusively economic debate of the primary season.  Charlie Rose was fairly benign as the moderator of the literal round table debate.  The candidates sat at a large table […]

Protesting for the problem they're against

The Occupy Wall Street protesters are voicing a very real and understandable grievance. Corporate America is far too involved in politics. I agree wholeheartedly. What these protesters do not understand is how or why corporations got involved in the government in the first place. In their calls to end capitalism they are showing a basic […]
