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?

Lethal Ignorance

This piece was originally published March 5, 2006 in the Washington Times. If you really like apple pie, and you could have one-third of a 2 pound pie or half of a 1 pound pie, which would you choose? This grade school math problem is very similar to the problem politicians and economic policymakers face in deciding whether to distribute smaller pieces of a bigger pie, or vice versa. Their decisions tell us much about their real motives.

Opposition to zoning builds

BY MATTHEW E. MILLIKEN

A Lee County commissioner warned a Henderson audience Monday evening that zoning represents a serious infringement upon property rights and urged them to consider case by case covenants with developers and land owners as an alternative. Perhaps 40 Vance residents turned out to the American Legion hall in downtown Henderson to hear Chad Adams, a Lee official who also heads the Center for Local Innovation at the John Locke Foundation. Adams cited the Lockean belief that property rights equal freedom and said that zoning, which governs land use, can erode such rights.

Have you noticed Congress and administrations periodically claim they will save a great deal in some government program by ending "waste, fraud, and abuse," and then provide a "number" representing the obtainable savings?

Burdens of Regulatory Fat

This piece originally ran in the Washington Times on November 14, 2005 After Hurricane Katrina, very few members of Congress have stepped forward with a meaningful plan for paying what's already an astronomical tab, other than driving America deeper into the red. While the hurricane relief debt steadily climbs, only a few members have dared suggest this spending be offset by reducing ever so slightly some of the taxpayer billions spent on pork-barrel special interest programs.
