Technology's Coming of Age: Part II

The last column discussed the technology industry on the cusp of a new defining period of growth. As an industry matures, the “reward” is often to become a target for regulation: with the internet, when an industry becomes so pervasive to touch upon almost every area of the economy, it becomes subject to laws that address the old and are interpreted to the new. Laws regulating horse and buggy transportation could cause quite a traffic jam if applied to modern driving. Without a good navigation system, technology companies may find their fate as much determined by Washington as their own good fortune in this new age.

The power behind the tax cuts

BY Fred Gaboury

In a brief period of two years, the right wing ideologues who control the federal government have been able to ram trillion-dollar tax cuts through Congress in 2001 and again in 2003, reduced a budget surplus to a deficit, and increase military spending while cutting spending for social programs. By their standards, quite an accomplishment. And the question becomes: How were they able to get away with it?

Old Europe: Could America Follow?

Earlier this year, Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld raised eyebrows when he referred disparagingly to “Old Europe.” It was a jolting description, and one that angered our allies. Rumsfeld was making a geo-political point about Iraq, however, the concept of “Old Europe” also applies to a fundamental crisis now hitting European state retirement systems. Indeed, Europe’s pension disaster offers a chilling glimpse at the potential Social Security calamity we face here in the United States.

What Would Jefferson Do?

On July 4th in 1776, the Continental Congress in Philadelphia adopted the Declaration of Independence, a document that announced the colonies’ freedom from the British Crown. Written by Thomas Jefferson, the declaration of freedom signaled a new approach to governance, rejecting tyranny and despotic rule in favor of a government whose power was limited in scope and whose authority was drawn from the people it governed. As so eloquently stated by Jefferson, “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness— That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed…” Today, with the federal government alone consuming roughly 20 percent of the nation’s output, it may be useful to revisit the original tenets outlined by Jefferson.

Connecticut CSE: No Tax Increases!

On Tuesday, Connecticut Governor John Rowland vetoed an interim budget proposed by state Senate and House Democrats. The spending plan would have cost the state $27.7 billion, creating a $1 billion budget gap. The solution from state legislators was to raise taxes, and the proposal included a $447 million tax hike. The plan would also raise taxes on business profits and license fees. Citizens for a Sound Economy supports the governor’s decision to reject the tax increase.

New Jersey Tax Hike Plan Passes Legislature on Tuesday

With Governor McGreevey's support, the New Jersey state Senate passed a plan on Tuesday that will raise taxes by almost $600 million. Last year, Governor McGreevey passed the Business Tax Reform Act of 2002, which cost taxpayers in the state $2.5 billion in 2003. The governor promised not to raise taxes in his 2002 campaign, and Citizens for a Sound Economy’s 7000 New Jersey members are disappointed that McGreevey broke his no-tax commitment yet again.
