The Future? No Such Thing.

Scott Adams, yes, the cartoonist behind Dilbert, has listed out some smart ideas about the global warming debate over at his blog:

"Market-based?" Hardly.

The Wall Street Journal has a good piece today discussing the rift between economists and politicians over whether global warming policy should involve a straight tax on carbon use--called a Pigovian tax, after this guy--or a cap-and-trade system.

Farm Subsidies: More Obsolete Than Your Grandpa's Tractor

Here in South Dakota, folks don't like government intervention in their lives. That is, unless we're discussing farm subsidies. People out here go crazy over this free cash from Uncle Sam, and any assertion against it is booed. In an article for RealClearPolitics, Robert Samuelson discusses the history of federal farm subsidies, and the massive money pit they have become. In the 37 years since 1970, the federal government has spent $578 billion on farm subsidies.

Good News for People Who Like Bad News

BY Peter Suderman

When it comes to the economy, no one likes bad news—no one, that is, except for liberal politicians. Why? Because liberals rely on bad news to sell their policies of choice. In fact, their whole approach to the economy is almost entirely predicated on it. From health care to social security to global warming, their number one tactic is to appeal to anxiety, fear, and worry. It's in their political interests to convince the public that things are bad, very bad—and probably going to get worse.

Pure Political Payoff

It's not exactly a secret that Democrats are in the pocket of the labor movement.   Despite the country's shrinking union membership, labor remains a potent force in electoral politics -- and its support goes almost exclusively to Democrats.  USA Today's got a handy report on how their influence plays out now that Democrats control Congress:

More on SCHIP

As I mentioned in a previous post today, Bush has threatened to veto the multi-billion dollar expansions being proposed to SCHIP.  One of the things that proponents of expanding the program really want to do is dramatically increase the income level of those who qualify, so that, in New York, families making 400% of the poverty level, or $82,000 a year, would qualify for taxpayer-funded health insurance.  It's a pretty blatant example of the Left's "sneaky sequentialist" approach to expanding government-funded health insurance rolls.

Documenting Entrepreneurship

Acton Media, a division of the wonderful free-market think tank, the Acton Institute, has produced a new documentary, The Call of the Entrepreneur, which I've heard nothing but good things about.
