The Call to Reform Section 404

In the wake of the 2002 corporate accounting scandals at Enron and WorldCom, Congress passed the Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX).  Garnering a combined vote of 522-3 in the House and Senate, SOX was billed as an attempt to strengthen corporate governance at America’s public companies.  In reality, the bill was a misguided mishmash of provisions passed in an uncritical hurry by a panicky Congress.

Real Do-Gooders

This piece originally appeared in the Washington Times on Oct. 1, 2006.  If you wanted to become really rich, yet at the same time help your fellow man, what would you do? There is no contradiction. The answer is -- start a business -- where you provide employment to others and also provide a new or improved good or service, or an existing good or service at a lower price.

House Conservatives Circulate Letter on Minimum Wage

Despite the clear economic case against a higher federal minimum wage, "moderates" in Congress are continuing the push the issue.  Fortunately, House conservatives are not going along with this misguided effort, and members of the Republican Study Committee circulated this letter on Capitol Hill yesterday.  Click here to view the letter (.pdf)

European Death Wish

This piece was originally published on July 13, 2006 in The Washington Times. VIENNA, Austria. -- Human lifespans in developed countries have been increasing 15 seconds every minute for the past 125 years, and they are increasing even faster in the developing countries -- on average about 20 seconds every minute. This means that in Europe and America lifespans increase about one year over every four-year period. Why has this happened? In one word -- chemistry.

From Many, One; Akaka's Separatist Bill

The concept of e pluribus unum holds that the diverse peoples of the various states are bound together in a government that protects the rights of all. In 1959 the people of Hawaii voted decisively in favor of statehood, with 94.33 % marking their ballots “Yes” to become part of the United States. Last week a vote of no less import took place, not in Hawaii or by the citizens of Hawaii, but five thousand miles away in the halls of Congress. This vote was to determine if Hawaii would continue to exist as a state with a common government granting equal protection under law or whether it would be split in two, with one part granting citizenship and special privileges only to some on the basis of race. Fortunately for all involved, the bill was defeated— but barely, with 56 Senators voting to move forward with the Democrat sponsored separatist bill in a vote that required 60 votes.

Why We Overregulate

This piece was originally published May 21, 2006 in the Washington Times. Assume you are a mid-level bureaucrat in a government regulatory agency, and you know your pay and title depend on how many regulations you are responsible for administering, and the number of people who work for you. Do you think you would push for more or fewer regulations?
