Organization of Milk Exporting States

Down, but almost never out, agricultural price support programs have tremendous staying power in Washington. Attempts to eliminate them are fought tooth and nail by constituencies dependent on price-fixing for their livelihood. Like many other congressionally-mandated price-fixing cartels, the Northeast Dairy Compact was instituted as a temporary measure to ensure the viability of farmers in a time of declining prices. Like most other "temporary" government subsidies dairy price supports have become a "necessary" component of U.S. agriculture policy.

Trade Promotion Authority Promotes Economic Growth

Last week, by the narrowest of margins-215 to 214, the House passed legislation granting the president trade promotion authority, critical to the United States' continued prosperity in a global market. Trade promotion authority, also known as fast track authority, allows the president to negotiate trade agreements that are then sent to Congress for and up or down vote-no amendments allowed. This allows the president to expand the marketplace for American goods and services without becoming embroiled in the partisan wrangling of congressional politics. As the world's largest trading nation, the United States has much to gain from the passage of trade promotion authority.

Antitrust Star Wars: Merger Review Extends to the Heavens

For nearly two years, General Motors (GM) listened to offers for Hughes Electronics, its subsidiary satellite operation that owns DirecTV and boasts over 10 million subscribers. During that time, two businesses positioned themselves to capture Hughes' considerable satellite assets and customer base: EchoStar , a rival satellite provider, and News Corporation Ltd. , owner of the FOX networks and Sky Satellite, among other holdings. The auction ended late in October, when GM accepted a $26 billion cash and stock bid from EchoStar.

The Fed Must Alter Operating Procedure to Relieve Deflation

In anticipation of the Federal Reserve Board meeting tomorrow, Empower America co-director Jack Kemp released the following statement: "There is widespread speculation that when the Fed meets tomorrow, it will cut the fed funds rate on overnight money that banks lend to one another by another 25 basis points, to 1.75 percent. In my opinion, more interest-rate-targeting gradualism of this sort will not succeed in reversing the monetary deflation currently underway and will fail to re-ignite the economy to lift it out of recession.
