Canddiates Attacked for Links to Lawyers

BY James Bradshaw

Another "education'' committee has joined the mulligan stew of groups attempting to influence this year's Ohio Supreme Court races. Ohio Citizens for a Sound Economy, the Buckeye chapter of a national organization that promotes free- market economics and reduced government, released a statement yesterday with the headline, "Some Ohio Supreme Court candidates in the pockets of trial lawyers.''

Gore's Governing Style

BY Jodi Enda

The vice president of the United States is leaning into his desk aboard Air Force Two, licking the sticky red chicken-wing sauce off his fingertips, one digit at a time. Just like a regular guy. In this unguarded moment, he does not look like a man who, for the past eight years, has been in charge of U.S. policy on a number of fronts. But he was. When it came to science, technology and, most of all, the environment, Gore was much more than the man behind The Man. He was dominant.

Sessions Eyes Arbitration Rule Reform

BY Mary Orndorff

WASHINGTON - U.S. Sen. Jeff Sessions on Tuesday introduced legislation he says would protect consumers in out-of-court disputes with businesses, but he has an ulterior motive. Sessions, R-Ala., wants his bill, which has no chance of passing this session, to trip up another bill that would exempt automobile dealers from the same legal obligations they demand of their customers. The proposal by U.S. Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, would allow dealers to avoid arbitration when they have a dispute with an auto manufacturer, an option most Alabama car buyers don't have.

Tech Bytes - Tid Bits in Tech News: “Innovative Regulation” in the DTV Market—A new Name for Centralized Planning

The contemporary defense of centralized economic planning revolves around the concept of “innovative regulation.” The idea is that omniscient regulatory bodies should dictate private investment and business decisions. This regulation attempts to use market forces in limited doses and under contrived circumstances to arrive at predetermined outcomes.
