"The War On Poverty Has Failed. What Do We Do About It?"
"This month, pundits from across the political spectrum are noting the 50th year of Lyndon Johnson's declaration of war on poverty. Liberals cite the good intentions of the programs, while Conservatives rue the trillions wasted on this failure and the massive growth of the federal bureaucracy it spawned (as I wrote about last year), but rarely do we do any self-examination. What do we do about it? "

The War On Poverty Has Failed. What Do We Do About It?

This month, pundits from across the political spectrum are noting the 50th year of Lyndon Johnson's declaration of war on poverty. Liberals cite the good intentions of the programs, while Conservatives rue the trillions wasted on this failure and the massive growth of the federal bureaucracy it spawned (as I wrote about last year), but rarely do we do any self-examination. What do we do about it? We can't just be about pointing out that the war on poverty has failed. We have to offer solutions. I participated in an intriguing discussion group this morning that posed this very challenge.

Why Does the Left Hate Black Fridays?

The New York Times asked its readership “What Does Black Friday Mean for You?” A few choice comments reveal the tone of the other 318:To me it means getting in the car with my spouse and adult daughters and heading to Cape May...Birding! None of us buy into this nonsensical consumer binge day.

In One Health Care Market, Costs Are Actually Dropping

Throughout the nation, politicians are screaming about the soaring cost of medical care. The jump in prices was the primary argument used to force Obamacare on an unwilling public.But did you know that the price for one area of medical services has actually fallen over the past 20 years? If you adjust for inflation, these health care costs have dropped by about a third. How is this possible? Because consumers pay for these expenses out of pocket instead of through insurance or expensive government programs.

Government Regulation of Alcohol is Bad M`kay

Regulation of alcohol in the United States uses  a three-tiered system  that perpetuates big business’s control on the alcohol industry and has helped maintain a cartel-like hold on the marketplace ever since the end of alcohol prohibition in 1933.

New Study Finds That School Choice is a "Win-Win"

When it comes to education reform, there is a lot of misinformation out there. While it has been shown time and time again that school choice is a win-win situation for everyone involved, there are those who continue to argue against it. Perhaps a little empirical evidence will change some minds.

Stanford Kills Popular Course on Free Market

Universities have long been considered hotbeds of liberalism. Radical protests, dreary PC speech codes, far-left professors and outright attacks on conservatism are not just common but expected. Academia has become so stridently left-wing, faculty views even a single ember of center-right thought as a dangerous wildfire.

Education Needs a Shot of the Free Market

It might seem strange to suggest that the American educational system look to bourbon, but maybe that is just what they need. Maker’s Mark had a little lesson in free market economics this week, and schools should take note.

The Horrors of State Run Medicine

American Conservatives have been sounding the alarm about state run health care and what horrors await us in a government run health care plan for most of the last century. In fact, Ronald Reagan warned us what was to come several decades ago.

Stop the Internet Sales Tax

Senators Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) and Mike Enzi (R-Wyo.) are expected to introduce a bipartisan bill aimed at increasing your taxes by taxing purchases you make on the internet.  The bill’s name is deceitfully titled the Main Street Fairness Act of 2011 – it is neither main street nor fair. The bill seeks to hurt online retailers and consumers alike, and will suppress internet entrepreneurship and your wallet.
