How would breaking up Microsoft Corp. affect the economy? Consumers Would Be Hit Hardest

BY Sen. Slade Gorton

More than a year ago, the Department of Justice filed a lawsuit against Microsoft Corp., which is based in my home state of Washington. While I believe the lawsuit was ill-advised in the first place, the remedy decision handed down by Judge Thomas Penfield Jackson to split Microsoft into two separate companies is simply disastrous. His decision, if carried into practice, would have a terrible impact on the U.S. economy for decades to come, cost consumers billions of dollars and set a troubling precedent for government regulation of the high-tech industry.

Civil Justice Reforms in Texas, Florida, and Alabama

Citizens for a Sound Economy (CSE) is hundreds of thousands of volunteer activists working for less government and lower taxes. For the past 15 years, CSE and our educational affiliate, CSE Foundation, have identified, educated, and activated citizens who are passionate about showing up to support free enterprise and limited government. CSE’s Civil Justice Reform Campaign was conceived in 1998 with the notion that our civil justice system is simply not working, and that trial lawyers are robbing decent, honest Americans of their money, trust, freedom, and peace of mind.

Koch legal work A report Sunday about Washington lawyer Robert Bennett's work for Koch Industries incorrectly said its executives were spending up to $1 million on an ad campaign against first lady Hillary Rodham Clinton in the New York Senate race. The money is being raised by a political action committee formed by the Citizens for a Sound Economy, a Washington-based think tank founded by Koch family foundations. Koch officials say, however, that neither the company nor family members have given money to the PAC or a related political fund.

Chilean brings support for private Social Security system at Grams' invitation

BY Eric Black

If Chile could successfully privatize its Social Security system in 1980, it should be easier for the United States to do so now, Jose Pinera, the architect of Chile's highly touted and much copied privatized pension program, said Thursday in the Twin Cities. Sen. Rod Grams, R-Minn., whose own plan to privatize the U.S. Social Security system is based on Chile's in many respects, said that Chile's success proves "this isn't just pie in the sky."

The stock symbols (BEL), (GTE), and (USW) disappeared from existence on Monday as the Bell Atlantic-GTE and Qwest-US West mergers were finalized. The mergers give hope that section 271 of the 1996 Telecommunications Act will meet a similar fate soon.

Tech Bytes - Tid Bits in Tech News: Regulation Before Deliberation in the Privacy Debate

As the weeks progress, the distinction between the political factions in the so-called privacy debate continues to fade. Both the House Government Reform Committee’s mark-up of H.R. 4049, “The Privacy Commission Bill,” and a recent ZDNet News interview with Gov. George W. Bush (R-Texas) have signaled that Republicans may be unwilling to defend consumers’ ability to engage in information-sharing arrangements.
