Grow Florida's Economy Not Florida's Government

The citizens of Florida have been hit hard by the current recession. Many people have lost jobs as business struggle to make ends meet. The Florida legislature should not compound the problem by backing a broad-based tax increase at a time when our economy is sluggish. Senator John McKay has made a proposal that would do just that - raise taxes! Worse, it seeks to shift the tax burden from tourists to the engine of Florida's economic growth : private enterprise.

Daschle's War on Bush

© 2002 Copley News Service, 1/9/2002 One of my New Year's resolutions was to give Senate Democratic Leader Tom Daschle a second chance after he scuttled the so-called economic stimulus package. But a week into the New Year I find myself having to break that resolution after hearing the Democratic leader rail against President George W. Bush. While Bush is fighting a war against terrorism around the world, Daschle is waging war against the president on the home front.

The Fed Must Alter Operating Procedure to Relieve Deflation

In anticipation of the Federal Reserve Board meeting tomorrow, Empower America co-director Jack Kemp released the following statement: "There is widespread speculation that when the Fed meets tomorrow, it will cut the fed funds rate on overnight money that banks lend to one another by another 25 basis points, to 1.75 percent. In my opinion, more interest-rate-targeting gradualism of this sort will not succeed in reversing the monetary deflation currently underway and will fail to re-ignite the economy to lift it out of recession.

Classical Exuberance, Bursting Keynesian Bubbles

Excerpt from The Green Book. In my opinion, this is not the "normal operation of the business cycle," nor the aftermath of a "burst bubble." Asset values have collapsed across the board, especially in the high-tech sector, not because they were unreasonably high, though some were, but rather because deflationary monetary policy slammed the economy into lower gear, made promising business plans unachievable and otherwise prudent debt levels unmanageable.

Deflationary Recession

Copley News Service, 11/14/2001 The Federal Reserve Board has been keeping monetary policy too tight and driving the economy into a deflationary recession. In late 2000, the Fed asphyxiated the economy, which was growing at more than 4 percent, by shrinking the monetary base by 3 percent and sucking the oxygen out of the marketplace.

Thank You Letter to Attorney General Cooper

Dear AG Cooper, As you are well aware, North Carolina Citizens for a Sound Economy (NC CSE) was unflinching in its opposition to North Carolina’s involvement in the antitrust suit against Microsoft. While Microsoft’s actions proved harmful to competitors, they provided great benefit to consumers by lowering the cost and increasing the availability of software products. Microsoft’s innovations increased familiarity with the Internet and formed a base on which to build today’s high tech economy. This impressive record of accomplishment should earn praise, not prosecution.
