Teacher Health Insurance in Texas: A Solution Looking for a Problem

Recently, there have been calls for improved teacher health insurance, with many people alleging the lack of teacher health insurance is the most important issue for improving education in Texas. No one disagrees that health insurance is an important issue, but there is much disagreement over proposals to use the Permanent School Fund to provide $700 million for the purchase of teacher health insurance. Diverting funds from the Permanent School Funds would be wrong for two reasons. First, the data do not suggest that there is a health insurance crisis for educators in Texas. Second, taking resources from the constitutionally created Permanent School Fund would threaten the fund’s long-term financial health.

A Letter From Seoul

Copley News Service, 03/27/2001 The world economy is caught in a vice between the jaws of monetary deflation and fiscal austerity, the result of extraordinarily tight monetary policy and high tax rates. According to Bear Stearns Chief International Economist David Malpass, the global economy is likely to contract by about half a percent in nominal terms this year.

It's Time To End Deflation

Copley News Service, 02/27/2001 Neither tax cuts nor interest rate cuts, as desirable as both may, be can stop the economy from shrinking, given current monetary policy by the Federal Reserve Board. We are up to our ears in a historically rare monetary deflation that will force prices and wages to fall just as monetary inflations require prices and wages to rise. It is the result of Alan Greenspan's overzealousness during these last four years of economic growth, the result of the Republican tax cuts of 1997 and the Internet-driven productivity surge.
