FOMC Minutes Signal Possible End to Rate Hikes

Humming for the Flat Tax

Sikha Dalmia at Reason Foundation has an interesting commentary on comprehensive 450 plus page study by CNW Marketing Research that finds that the dust-to-dust energy costs of Hummers are lower than those of gas-electric hybrid automobiles.  Although many environmentalists will likely blink their incredulous eyes, after two years of looking into all the minutiae that constitute the lifetime energy costs spent on developing, building, selling, driving, and disposing of a vehicle, it turns out that, as any good low energy consumption Luddite will tell you, simplicity is what’s important.  Fancy cars with lots of perks, advanced materials, and those that have a small market all tend to use much more energy in development and manufacture, as advanced materials take a lot of energy to build and dispose of, and the smallness of the market cannot support the efficiencies of scale that a larger market supports.

Washington Times on SOX

An editorial in today’s Washington Times discusses the negative effects of the Sarbanes-Oxley regulations on small businesses. The one-size-fits-all approach of Section 404, which mandates an annual internal audit in addition to the already required external audit, makes the cost of compliance disproportionately high for many small cap companies.

Tax Activist Returns to Oregon’s Political Stage

BY Brad Cain

Sidelined for the past four years because of legal troubles brought on by a racketeering lawsuit, Oregon’s most prolific initiative author — Bill Sizemore — is getting back into the fight. Sizemore is promoting an initiative measure for the November ballot to prohibit insurance companies from raising customers’ rates solely because they have poor credit history. It’s a departure from previous measures Sizemore has sponsored to curb the political power of public employee unions, limit the size of government and reduce taxes on Oregonians.
