Fed Chairman Asks "Will We Treat Future Generations Fairly?"

BY

In a speech today before the Washington Economic Club, Federal Reserve Chairman Ben S. Bernanke warned the nation about its perilous fiscal situation. As the baby boom generation retires, entitlement spending will place a crushing tax burden on the remaining American workers. Bernanke described this harrowing future:

Stop Overspending

BY John McClaughry

Candidates almost unanimously report that taxes — especially education property taxes — are the single hottest state issue on this year's campaign trail. And rightly so. Tax Commissioner Tom Pelham has observed that Vermont's spending per pupil is third highest in the nation, our pupil-teacher ratio (10.9:1) is the lowest in the nation, and education spending is climbing at 6.6 percent a year since implementation of Act 60, even as the number of pupils has decreased by 7.7 percent.

Alpine Races See Partisan Politics

BY Anne Krueger

Candidates for the Alpine Union School District board may disagree on their politics, but they all say they're happy with much of the way the East County district is running. Test scores are high. The school system, which serves 2,300 students from kindergarten through eighth grade, is managed well. Teachers are generally satisfied. “There's nothing severely broken in the Alpine school district,” said Gina Henke, one of six candidates.

Measures: Some get big bucks, some don't

BY David Steves

SALEM - Oregon's slate of ballot-measure campaigns are falling into two camps - the haves and the have-nots - when it comes to campaign contributions, according to Monday's financial disclosures. Of the 10 measures on the Nov. 7 ballot, five of them accounted for 94 percent of the $8.5 million in combined contributions reported between June 6 and Sept. 21. The biggest draws were also the most lopsided contests.

Avoid Budget Cuts: "Declare Crisis"

BY

Federal Times covered a conference held by the Senior Executives Association to discuss America's looming fiscal crisis and its coming impact on discretionary government programs. Shockingly, the SEA's Andy Uscher suggested a number of tactics to government program managers that seem unethical at best and possibly illegal depending on implementation:

The Call to Reform Section 404

In the wake of the 2002 corporate accounting scandals at Enron and WorldCom, Congress passed the Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX).  Garnering a combined vote of 522-3 in the House and Senate, SOX was billed as an attempt to strengthen corporate governance at America’s public companies.  In reality, the bill was a misguided mishmash of provisions passed in an uncritical hurry by a panicky Congress.
