Federalist 62. Madison reminds us that the election of U.S. Senators by their respective state legislatures secured state rights or authority. In your opinion, how might a return to this vital constitutional principle become a key element in empowering a push back against federal intrusion into powers our heaven inspired Constitution clearly retained as jurisdictionally belonging to state & local governments, to families & individuals, to private businesses, churches, & charities?

Accuracy of Macroeconomic Forecasts

Accuracy of Macroeconomic Forecasts

CHRIS EDWARDS, CATO INSTITUTE One of my first professional jobs 25 years ago was with the economic forecasting firm DRI/McGraw-Hill. It was fun work, but I noticed that the firm’s gross domestic product forecasts with models hundreds of equations long were no better than simple forecasts based on the interest rate yield curve.

Eliminating Waste and Controlling Government Spending

Eliminating Waste and Controlling Government Spending

ROMINA BOCCIA, HERITAGE FOUNDATION Abstract Waste and inefficiency in the U.S. government are rampant. The federal government does too many things that would be done better by individuals or businesses in the private sector, or by state and local governments, or that should not be done at all.

Democrats And Jobs: Love Them Or Hate Them?

Democrats And Jobs: Love Them Or Hate Them?

MARK W. HENDRICKSON Historically, the Democrats proudly have worn the mantle of “the party of labor.” In practice, though, there has been an interesting dichotomy: they undoubtedly are the party of organized labor, with unions being a major pillar of the Democratic Party; however, their policies often have increased unemployment and [...]

SIFIs Are LCCs (Lucrative Cash Cows)

MARK W. HENDRICKSON Six years ago, it seemed as though the financial system of the United States might melt down. In March of 2008, prodded by federal regulators, J.P. Morgan J.P.

Hayek: Free Market Money

Hayek: Free Market Money

F.A. HAYEK, THE FREEMAN   I have always defended the gold standard, and later fixed exchange rates, not because I thought they resulted in particularly good money but because they provided the only effective protection from government abuse of its monopoly to issue money. But now, when this discipline has broken down, I see no hope of its [...]

We need some regulatory patriotism!

We need some regulatory patriotism!

BY PAUL DRIESSEN ~President Obama condemns tax inversions, but pillages America with his regulatory agenda. “My policies are on the ballot, every single one of them,” he reminded voters on October 2.~ It’s no mystery why American companies have stockpiled over $2 trillion of overseas earnings in foreign bank accounts. If they bring it to [...]

Human Rights are More Important than Property Rights

Human Rights are More Important than Property Rights

PAUL L. POIROT, THE FREEMAN Clichés of Progressivism, Part 9 It is not the right of property which is protected, but the right to property. Property, per se, has no rights; but the individual—the man—has three great rights, equally sacred from arbitrary interference: the right to his life, the right to his liberty, the right to his [...]

Governor Brownback’s Tax Cuts

Governor Brownback’s Tax Cuts
