Language and Wealth

BY Richard W. Rahn

Does the language you speak or use help influence how wealthy you are? When trying to determine why some countries are wealthier than others, economists rarely, if at all, consider language. However, if you look at the list of wealthiest countries on a per capita income basis, you will notice almost all the top 20 are English-speaking, or use some other Germanic language, with the exception of France, Japan, and Finland (however, most Finns know German and English as well as Swedish, and many Frenchmen know German and/or English).

Is Freedom a "Satanic" Idea in American Education?

The LA Times has an interesting column describing an interview with Milton Friedman on the idea that families should be able to choose which school their child attends.

Toll Charges Ahead on the Internet Freeway?

Normally Americans offer ideas critical of government, emphasizing free-market policies as an alternative to Europe's state-centred, socialistic tendencies. But in years to come the phrase "beware geeks bearing gifts" may come to describe the American Trojan Horse US which threatens to ruin the Internet. For the current US debate between high-tech content providers and broadband access providers about the deceptive term "net neutrality" has nothing to do with keeping the Internet free and open.

Lacking a Stick, Google Speaks Harshly

Vint Cerf, Google VP and Chief Internet Evangelist, announced Tuesday in Bulgaria that if a network neutrality amendment is not passed by Congress the company will readily file anti-trust complaints against network operators that discriminate against content providers.  Yet if the discrimination is already illegal and can be prosecuted under existing laws, one wonders why a strong network neutrality amendment is necessary.  Indeed the public push for government coerced neutrality by multi-billion dollar companies like Google and Microsoft and the intense response of many suggest that widely available and disseminated information about the practices of broadband providers would be more than sufficient to maintain the open nature of the internet that consumers crave, demand, and enjoy and which has rarely if ever been denied to them.  It is unfortunate that Google does not believe in the marketplace of ideas and the intelligence of its consumers to make their own decisions and instead turns to the big stick of government instead of using persuasion.  One should expect more from the people supporting net neutrality who claim that they believe in the free exchange of ideas.

State Democrats Cutting Taxes

Democrats in Washington should take some advice from their counterparts at the state level.  A recent Wall Street Journal op-ed points out that in several states, Democratic governors and legislatures are adopting supply-side logic and enacting sweeping tax cuts to stimulate economic growth.

Proposed Bill Could Save Taxpayers $100 million

A bill recently passed by the Senate Finance Committee could save taxpayers an estimated $100 million a year by raising the threshold at which estimated-tax penalties must be payed. Currently, penalties apply for underwithholding taxes by $1000, but the legislation would raise this limit to $2000.

Inconvenient Truths and Political Reality

An op-ed in the Washington Post by Robert Samuelson today points out that there is not much that we can do in the near future to stop rising carbon levels in the atmosphere.  The International Energy Agency reports that even with very optimistic estimates of technology innovation and huge increases in market share for wind, solar, and other non-emitting energy sources, greenhouse gases will still be higher in 2050 than they are today.  Samuelson takes this as a lesson from the report.
