The Apple of a Think Tank's Eye

BY Richard Morin and Claudia Deane

Inside the Manhattan Institute for Policy Research, a few blocks from Grand Central Station in downtown Manhattan, life still isn't completely back to normal, said spokeswoman Lindsay Young. And it may never be. The terrorist strikes on the city have prompted the tank to reshuffle its research priorities and refocus attention on its home town.

Pseudo-Intellectuals Take on America

Starting out loudly, America's far-left has grown somewhat more quiet over first month since the terrorist attacks of September 11 as it learned that there is not much of an audience these days for its ugly blame-America-first diatribes. Following are a few of the most egregious examples of their silliness. PECULIAR SENTIMENTS FROM AMERICA'S INTELLIGENSIA

Supply-Side Stimulus Can Spur Recovery

As printed in the September 27, 2001 edition of the Wall Street Journal Even before the tragic events of Sept. 11, the economy was struggling. Many economists feared we were headed for an economic downturn in spite of aggressive interest-rate cuts by the Federal Reserve and tax rebates designed to put money in people's pockets as quickly as possible. While, in our opinion, the economy needed help beyond these measures, neither Congress nor the White House could do more because of past promises to keep their hands off the Social Security surplus.

Out of the Fed's Hands

When US economic growth rates were the envy of the world, Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan attained a mythical status like no central banker in history. Since its creation in 1913, the Federal Reserve has always had its share of critics on both the right, for its perceived illegitimacy, and the left, for its undemocratic character. But from 1995 until early this year, both sides seemed content with the institution.

Accelerating Bush’s Tax Cuts: Revving the Engine of Economic Growth

In May, President Bush signed a pro-growth, $1.35 trillion tax cut. Though many rebate checks have been mailed out, the true growth aspects of the legislation have yet to take full effect. Congress should take action now to speed up the implementation of this tax cut to help promote economic growth. Further, lawmakers should eliminate the 10-year sunset clause that would otherwise repeal the tax cuts in 2011.

Fiscal Restraint: Responsible Spending for a Strong Economy

A war against terrorism is a costly endeavor that will require a significant share of the government’s resources. Because overall spending will almost undoubtedly increase, it is especially important to exercise fiscal discipline and avoid waste. Congress must prioritize America’s needs and avoid excessive spending on wasteful government programs that stymie economic growth.

Net tax unlikely in near future

BY KEVIN CORCORAN

Consumers who buy books, clothes and other items over the Internet won't encounter widespread efforts to make them pay sales taxes anytime soon. A plea by 42 governors, including Indiana's Frank O'Bannon, that Congress help force all out-of-state retailers to collect sales taxes appears likely to fail. In return, the governors have offered to support continuing a federal ban on taxing consumers' Internet access. Congress appears poised to extend for at least another two years that moratorium, which expires Oct. 21.
