Price-gouging?

Originally published September 29, 2005 in The Washington Times If you bought a home 10 years ago for $100,000 and just sold it for $300,000, have you engaged in price gouging? Most people would say "no," provided there were willing buyers and sellers of both sides of the transaction merely responding to the market at the time.

RSC proposed cuts incite friction among House GOP

BY Patrick O'Connor

House conservatives called for broad spending cuts yesterday to offset emergency funding in response to Hurricane Katrina, a move that triggered heightened friction between leadership officials and the right wing of the GOP conference. The tensions illustrate a growing divide within the party about how to handle hurricane relief as another storm heads for the battered Gulf Coast region.

New London Supreme Court decision. It's just the beginning of the campaign-- great work so far guys!

Blame Amid the Tragedy

This piece was originally published in Wall Street Journal. As the devastation of Hurricane Katrina continues to shock and sadden the nation, the question on many lips is, Who is to blame for the inadequate response? As a former state legislator who represented the legislative district most impacted by the eruption of Mount St. Helens in 1980, I can fully understand and empathize with the people and public officials over the loss of life and property.

Who's Afraid of Scientific Methods?

This op-ed was originally published in The Washington Times on August 21, 2005. People who consider themselves very rational argue that most disputes about what is true and what is not can be settled by calmly looking at the evidence and letting it guide them to the proper conclusion. However, many who claim to be adherents of the scientific method seem to lose their "scientific objectivity" in some of the great debates of the day.

Private Property At The Mercy of Government

John McClaughry is President of the Ethan Allen Institute (www.ethanallen.org). June 28, 2005 When, if ever, does government have the power to take the property of A and turn it over to B? According to a June 23 ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court (Kelo vs City of New London), government can do that whenever it thinks that B will pay more in taxes.

Why do we regulate?

Detroit News on the Minimum Wage

I'd like to share this important editorial from today's Detroit News on the impact of an increase in the minimum wage: Plan would make state unemployment problem worse Michigan has one of the highest rates of unemployment in the nation. So what do organized labor and some Michigan Democrats plan to do? Put a higher minimum wage on the state ballot next year, which could throw more people out of work. There is a word for this kind of economic thinking: dumb.
