In Search of European Democracy

BY Richard W. Rahn

Is the European Union a democracy? The Europeans and most others will argue yes, but there are many different degrees of democracy. Many Europeans increasingly feel powerless when it comes to their national government and particularly that of the EU, and for good reason. Despite the fact that many of the nations of Europe are much older than the U.S., all of their democracies are much younger (with the partial exception of Switzerland), most have only been real democracies for the last several decades, and even less for the former communist states.

No Holiday For Signature-Gatherers

BY Steve Law

Hundreds of Oregonians will be trying to take the law into their own hands in the coming week, gathering final petition signatures to put citizen-drafted bills and constitutional amendments before voters. Backers of initiative measures must turn in signatures to the state Elections Division by Friday to qualify for Oregon's Nov. 7 ballot. Citizens and special-interest groups drafted 165 initiatives, but now it's down to 13 proposals contending to make the ballot. Topics include abortion, campaign-finance reform and a statewide spending limit.

Hedge Funds Prepare for Political Battle

Although an appeals court recently rejected a regulation forcing hedge funds to register with the SEC, many fund managers are beginning to feel the heat from government regulators. As such, many hedge funds are stepping up lobbying efforts in Washington, D.C., in hopes of fending off new regulations from Congress or the SEC. Currently, hedge funds operate in an environment with relatively little oversight. But due to huge returns and the use of sophisticated, unconventional tactics, the government is beginning to take a closer look.

Kelo Anniversary

BY Joyce Krawiec

This past week marked the one-year anniversary of a devastating Supreme Court decision that dramatically eroded private property rights across America. The case, Kelo v. New London, expands government’s eminent domain power and has sparked a flurry of new property seizures by local governments. Fortunately, the outcome of the case is also spurring state legislatures to write into law new protections to reduce the effects of the decision. Unfortunately, much more still needs to be done to safeguard private property rights.
