Is Obama To Blame For Weak Economic Growth?

Is Obama To Blame For Weak Economic Growth?

BY MARK W. HENDRICKSON A political science colleague sent me an article documenting President Obama’s dismal economic record, and he asked me for added details and perspective. Here goes: True, economic growth under Obama has been sluggish, fitful, faltering, historically weak, etc. However, if you look at the charts in the article (see [...]

The Magna Carta Turns 800

The Magna Carta Turns 800

BY DR. MARK W. HENDRICKSON, CENTER FOR VISION & VALUES It isn’t too often that we remember something that happened 800 years ago. There are very few dates or events from that period—the Middle Ages—that most people remember. But one event—perhaps the most significant in the English speaking world of this time—was the signing of [...]

Misdiagnosing Inequality And The Cause Of Middle-Class Woes

Misdiagnosing Inequality And The Cause Of Middle-Class Woes

Responding to Nobel Economist Joseph Stilitz's Yahoo.com Interview BY MARK W. HENDRICKSON In an interview posted on Yahoo.com (April 23), Nobel Prize-winning economist Joseph Stiglitz spoke about growing economic inequality and America’s shrinking middle class. Agreed, these are challenging and discouraging times for many, but as has happened [...]

TPP: A Threat to the Rule of Law

TPP: A Threat to the Rule of Law

MARK W. HENDRICKSON The Wall Street Journal editorial page seems to reserve an especially snide sarcasm for Republicans who wander off the path of economic growth. The latest recipient of this acidulous derision was Senator Jeff Sessions (R-AL). On Monday, an obviously miffed WSJ editorialist lambasted Sessions for a “critical alert” the [...]

Book Review: John Tamny’s ‘Popular Economics’

Book Review: John Tamny’s ‘Popular Economics’

MARK W. HENDRICKSON The multi-talented John Tamny—editor of RealClearMarkets, the Political Economy editor at Forbes, senior economic advisor to Toreador Research and Trading (among other hats that he wears)—has written a new, much-needed book. “Popular Economics: What the Rolling Stones, Downton Abbey, and LeBron James can Teach You About [...]

Unionism’s Fatal Flaws, Part Two: Double Standards

Unionism’s Fatal Flaws, Part Two: Double Standards

BY MARK W. HENDRICKSON Quite predictably, my article last week about Wisconsin adopting a right to work law elicited comments pro and con. I didn’t have time to read them all, but those I did read were an illustration of unions’ double standards. Members of unions need to realize that those double standards were a major factor contributing to [...]

Negative Interest Rates: A Brilliant Concept!

Negative Interest Rates: A Brilliant Concept!

MARK W. HENDRICKSON I have to admit that initially I was uninterested, even close-minded, about the negative yield being offered on a growing share of European sovereign debt. “It must be a short-term aberration,” I thought at first. “Completely nutso,” I sniffed dismissively as the phenomenon spread. “Who in their right mind would [...]

The FCC versus Internet Freedom

The FCC versus Internet Freedom

MARK W. HENDRICKSON Earlier this month, Federal Communications Commission Chairman Tom Wheeler announced that its five commissioners will conduct a vote on February 26 to decide whether to grant itself the authority to regulate the Internet under Title II of the Communications Act of 1934. It’s highly likely the FCC will give itself this [...]

Remembering the “Miracle on Ice”

Remembering the “Miracle on Ice”

MARK W. HENDRICKSON, CENTER FOR VISION AND VALUES February 22 marked the 35th anniversary of the upset victory by the U.S. hockey team over their heavily favored Soviet rivals in the 1980 Winter Olympics. Ever since known as the “Miracle on Ice,” Sports Illustrated named this game “the greatest sports moment of the 20th century.” I [...]

The EU’s Nightmare In The ‘Hotel California’

The EU’s Nightmare In The ‘Hotel California’

MARK W. HENDRICKSON When the Eagles came out with their mega-hit “Hotel California” almost 40 years ago, I’m sure they never dreamt that their words would capture the essence of the economic and political nightmare that the nations of the European Union (EU) would be suffering through in 2015. For decades, Eagles fans have debated what [...]
