While these partisan shenanigans are outrageous, Noble Prize winner James Buchanan explains they are to be expected.  Dr. Buchanan developed a field of economics built around the idea that bureaucrats are merely human (surprise!). In other words, bureaucrats respond to incentives.

Another Texas Success: Houston Edges Out NYC as Nation's Leading Goods Exporter

New data shows Houston pulling ahead of New York City as the largest goods exporting region in the country. The cause?
