Out of the Slough of happiness

BY Richard W. Rahn

Slough (meaning muddy field), England, is not a lovely place. It is east of London, a bit beyond Heathrow Airport -- a glum commuter town. The BBC, in a made-for-television social experiment, "Making Slough Happy," is trying to make Slough a happier place by giving the town group therapy, bizarre as that may seem.

Bush hopes for lift from upbeat economic reports

BY Caren Bohan

WASHINGTON, - President George W. Bush, trying to lift his sagging approval ratings, has launched a push to take credit for recent positive economic news the public has largely shrugged off. In one example of the pessimism, an ABC/Washington Post poll taken in the month ended Nov. 13 showed 64 percent of Americans described the economy as poor or not so good, with only 36 percent judging it to be good or excellent.

The Corporate Boardroom is the Latest Political Battleground

We have all seen Jesse Jackson and other liberal activists use investor rights and the shareholder process and to advance their agenda. Instead of being left alone to innovate and grow, many large American corporations are spending time and treasure to defend against increasingly outrageous leftist advocacy efforts. Some political activists operating under the banners of "Corporate Social Responsibility" (CSR) and "Socially Responsible Investing" (SRI) are using the very tools of corporate governance to further an anti-capitalist program. These radical activists target law-abiding corporations with threats of boycott, negative publicity, litigation, and product disparagement unless their demands are met. Those demands are often payments to other left-wing advocacy groups. These tactics threaten American business competitiveness and the interests of millions of U.S. investors. But too often, corporate leaders bow to the threat of bad press and pressure from these liberal insiders. For an example, check out the Citigroup Environment grants page. Where are the free market environmental environmental groups? This is not even close to balanced, and some of these groups are extremely radical socialists. Rainforest Action Network (RAN), in particular, is extremely hostile to economic progress. So why are Citigroup shareholders funding RAN, a group that suggests that Ford Motor Company is killing people?

How to outdo Greenspan

BY Richard W. Rahn

Do you know why the retiring Federal Reserve chairman is praised so highly? He made fewer mistakes "pricing" the U.S. dollar than some of his recent predecessors. The "price" referred to is the short-term interest rate -- the rate the Fed charges banks that borrow from the Fed.

FreedomWorks: Disappointment with Passage of H.Res 520

Dear Representative, On behalf of more than 700,000 FreedomWorks members nationwide, I am writing to voice our collective disappointment in the passage of H.Res 520, the Agriculture Appropriations Conference Report rule because the conference report exceeds the Budget Resolution. As the CBO has reported, the conference report violates the FY06 budget resolution by $199 million by exceeding the Ag 302(b) allocation. As a result, the Rule asked Members to waive a point of order lying against H.R. 2744, and thus waive the budget resolution.

Europe vs. Europe

BY Richard W. Rahn

STRASBOURG, France.- Is it a sensible idea to move the site of government every three weeks? This is precisely what the European Union does every month, since much of its government moves back and forth -- with great wagon trains of trucks carrying government papers (and the luggage of the European parliamentarians) -- between this picturesque city in the Rhine Valley and Brussels, Belgium.
