Federal Funding and Regulations on Campus?

Yesterday the Democratic Leadership Council unveiled a plan for higher education that will cost taxpayers $150billion and will hold schools and students accountable to Washington. As Neil McCluskey of explains in an article posted at Cato, politicians want votes, professors and administrators want more money and prestige, and students want to pay less tuition, leading to an easy “solution” to problems in higher education that sends a lot of money through broad spending programs to a lot of people.

FOMC Minutes Signal Possible End to Rate Hikes

The Fed recently released the minutes from its June meeting. Find them here.  While core inflation was higher than projected, the Board expects inflationary pressures to ease in the coming weeks. This, coupled with dovish nature of Chairman Ben Bernanke's testimony to Congress yesterday, has many analysts believing that the Fed will pause rate hikes at their next meeting.

Humming for the Flat Tax

Sikha Dalmia at Reason Foundation has an interesting commentary on comprehensive 450 plus page study by CNW Marketing Research that finds that the dust-to-dust energy costs of Hummers are lower than those of gas-electric hybrid automobiles.  Although many environmentalists will likely blink their incredulous eyes, after two years of looking into all the minutiae that constitute the lifetime energy costs spent on developing, building, selling, driving, and disposing of a vehicle, it turns out that, as any good low energy consumption Luddite will tell you, simplicity is what’s important.  Fancy cars with lots of perks, advanced materials, and those that have a small market all tend to use much more energy in development and manufacture, as advanced materials take a lot of energy to build and dispose of, and the smallness of the market cannot support the efficiencies of scale that a larger market supports.

Washington Times on SOX

An editorial in today’s Washington Times discusses the negative effects of the Sarbanes-Oxley regulations on small businesses. The one-size-fits-all approach of Section 404, which mandates an annual internal audit in addition to the already required external audit, makes the cost of compliance disproportionately high for many small cap companies.
