Faux Foreign Exchange Signals

©2003 Copley News Service, 10/21/2003 Countries that anchor the value of their currencies to a larger, relatively stable currency, such as the dollar and the euro, are wrongly accused by many world leaders of "manipulating" their currencies. Leaders who pressure countries with fixed exchange rates to allow their currencies to float freely on foreign exchange (Forex) markets aren't considering the inherent limitations of currency markets, and they fail to appreciate the economic havoc floating exchange rates create.

CSE Key Votes S. 1751, the Class Action Fairness Act

Dear Senator, On behalf of the 280,000 members of Citizens for a Sound Economy (CSE), I urge you to vote YES on S. 1751, the Class Action Fairness Act. It’s time to stop trial lawyers from fleecing America’s judicial system by curbing abusive and frivolous class action lawsuits. The Class Action Fairness Act (S. 1751) will make it easier for class action suits to be moved to federal courts where judges serve life terms, have a greater degree of expertise, and have broader national interests than state judges.

'Biggest tax increase'? Depends on who's asked

BY HARRY ESTEVE

Opponents of the Legislature's $800 million budget-balancing plan call it the "biggest tax increase in Oregon history" in speeches and interviews and on Internet sites. It's a catchy, galvanizing characterization. Whether it's completely accurate depends on how the tax plan and state finances are viewed. From Our Advertiser In raw dollar amounts, said state Legislative Revenue Officer Paul Warner, the latest tax increase clearly is bigger than any other. But that's not the only way to look at it, he said.

Local antitax bid not so local

BY HARRY ESTEVE

The day after lawmakers passed an $800 million tax increase, several Oregon political groups rushed forward with a plan to force a statewide vote on the issue, trumpeting the effort as a locally driven, grass-roots rebellion. In the weeks since, however, it has become clear that most of the financial and organizational muscle behind the referendum is coming from a Washington, D.C.-based group with a relatively new franchise in Oregon.

Stumbling on Tax Reform

They gather around in Iowa and New Hampshire, but they’re not saying very much. This Presidential season, the Democrat candidates as a group are failing to articulate any plan on taxes except raising them. Even Bill Clinton-style “triangulation” politics seem to have disappeared. It’s a sad day when former centrists like Joe Sen. Lieberman are playing the class warfare card and calling for new tax hikes on upper-income Americans.

The Case For Thinning Our Forests

Across the American West, catastrophic wildfires have decimated the landscape —destroying homes and property, devastating soil, air and water quality and wiping out thousands of acres of irreplaceable wildlife habitat. In the last three years, we have seen two of the worst wildfire seasons on record. In 2002 alone, four states—Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico and Oregon—had their biggest fires in history. Once again, anyone in his right mind is asking the same question: what can we do to stop these catastrophic wildfires from happening?

In 1928, Joseph Stalin, Dictator General of the USSR, launched the first Five-Year Plan for the communist nation, aimed at making its economy perform like a free market economy—except that it would be better because it would be free from the evils of the market. In 2003, John Potter, Postmaster General of the USPS, launched the first Five-Year Strategic Planfor the US Postal Service, aimed at making the government business perform like a free market business—- except that it would be better because it would be from the evils of the market.
