Help Bring Telecom Competition to Alabama

Legislation has been introduced in Alabama that will allow consumers the benefits of telecommunications reform and increased competition in this vital sector of the economy.  HB 478 and SB 373 take a step in the right direction of getting government out of the way and will help promote investment and encourage innovation in the telecommunications market.TAKE ACTIONTechnology has come a long way since Alabama’s telecommunications laws were last updated.  The current regulatory regime is badly outdated and reduces competition, investment, and innovation in telecommunications services.  As a result, laws written for another time are putting the breaks on exciting new technologies and ultimately consumers are left with fewer choices and less innovative products. Contact your legislators and the governor TODAY and urge them to support HB 478 and SB 373!Remind them that these bills take a de-regulatory approach and will streamline and modernize existing law to encourage economic growth and healthy competition.  They will strip out unnecessary and over-burdensome regulation that will better enable the free market to work in the telecommunications industry.  Especially in such turbulent economic times, Alabama consumers and the economy as a whole should reap the benefits of increased competition in the form of more choices, better service, and competitive prices!

Obama Adminstration "incorrect" about likely budget deficits

I used the word “incorrect” in the title because I’m feeling momentarily generous. A more precise word would probably have been “lied". Today’s news about deficits is, not surprisingly, much worse than the already-bad picture painted for us by the Obama administration and their ridiculously rosy economic forecasts. An AP article entitled “$1 trillion deficits seen for next 10 years” explains that:

Sanford Refuses Stimulus Cash

South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford today announced he would refuse federal stimulus cash since his request to use some of the money to pay down state debt was rejected by the White House.  This is worth noting, not only from the standpoint of the Obama Administration ramming policy down the throat of a state, but also because many in the media have been unfairly jumping on Gov. Sanford of late and calling him a hippocrite for saying he wouldn't take stimulus money and then flipping.  Needless to say, this is simply untrue.

The AIG tax bill's possible benefits

In a fit of economic idiocy driven by misdirected populist outrage, the House of Representatives passed H.R. 1586 on Thursday afternoon, subjecting to a 90% tax rate any bonus paid to a person who works at any institution which has received at least $5 billion in TARP money whose: (1) family income is over $250,000 (2) individual income is over $125,000 if he/she is married but files a separate tax return

Our very own Wesley Mouch

In Atlas Shrugged, one of the main villains is Wesley Mouch, who is described in the Wikipedia entry on the book’s characters as “Initially Wesley Mouch is the least powerful and least significant of the Looters - the other members of this group feel they can look down upon him with impunity. Eventually he becomes the most powerful Looter, and the country’s economic dictator, thereby illustrating Rand’s belief that a government-run economy places too much power in the hands of incompetent bureaucrats who would never have positions of similar influence in a private sector business.”

AIG: "A Mistake at the beginning"

The media and political furor of the week is the employee bonuses paid by AIG under contracts that existed prior to the government’s effective takeover of the company. And while the President as well as politicians of both parties are fulminating about the payouts, voter anger should be directed more at those very politicians than at AIG.

Congress Angry about Irresponsible Use of Taxpayer Dollars

David Harsanyi of the Denver Post has written an amazing article on Congressional outrage over AIG bonuses.  "Here's an idea: If you stop nationalizing banks, there will be no need to engage in phony-baloney indignation over bonus payments anymore."  He's exactly right!  I can't say it any better than he does:

St. Patrick's Day: Some Hope from Ireland

Happy Saint Patrick's Day!  Each year since I became interested in development economics, St. Patty's day has reminded me of the free market revolution that took place in Ireland in the nineties.  Ireland was the poorest economy in Europe then, but by 2006, it had the highest per capita GPD on the continent and economic growth rates of 9 percent or higher.  How did they achieve it?  They massively reduced the size and role of government in their society.  They cut taxes, abolished agencies, cut spending, and stopped inflation.  They moved from one of the least free states in Europe to the freest.
