The Hidden Cost of Regulation

The Federal Register is the document that compiles all the federal rules and regulations that businesses are required to comply with. As of 2010 the Federal Register was 81,405 pages long. Federal regulations serve as a hidden tax on the economy. Costs imposed by regulation do not end up on any Federal budget, nor do they add to the national deficit. However, 81,405 pages of regulations strain the economy by creating huge costs that business are obligated to meet.

That Which is not Seen: The Hidden Evils of the Minimum Wage

“Between a good and a bad economist this constitutes the whole difference – the one takes account of the visible effect; the other takes account both of the effects which are seen and also those which it necessary to foresee.”~ C. Frederic Bastiat, 1801-1850

Shale natural gas is natural gas which is trapped in large underground shale formations.

Democracy and Power 102:  Voters are rationally ignorant  Tragically, the vast majority of the voters are rationally ignorant of most government actions.  The vast majority of the public is ignorant of bills, legislation, regulations and taxes that will ultimately affect their lives.

Young Americans Protest the Federal Reserve

Over the past few years, we have seen a renewed interest in the role of the Federal Reserve. Rep. Ron Paul’s (R-Texas) presidential runs, along with the financial meltdown have directed much needed attention to the central bank.
