American Energy Needs Private Markets, Not Haphazard Government Intervention

The war on terrorism clearly demonstrates the vulnerabilities of our energy markets, given the large amounts of energy we import from political hotspots. Following the September attacks there has been a great deal of pressure to end our dependence on foreign oil. But the war has also demonstrated that the market for energy is global and it would be impossible to extricate the United States from the world's energy markets. Since the attacks, energy markets have continued to operate, and Americans have seen some of the lowest prices at the pump in recent times. This does not mean that nothing can be done to improve energy markets in the United States. Any steps taken, however, must acknowledge the worldwide market for energy as well as the fact that private markets, not government intervention, will provide the basis for reliable energy now and in the future.

Governments Create Calamity, Markets Get the Blame

© 2001 Copley News Service, 1/2/2002 When democratic governments create economic calamity, free markets get the blame. In today's world that means the International Monetary Fund, with U.S. backing, bails out lenders on the condition that creditor governments agree to poison their citizens with fiscal austerity, causing the people to rebel and turn to socialism. If you want to know where the next riots will break out, follow the IMF "candy man" around the world.

'Just Say No' to More Tax Gimmicks

© Copley News Service, 12/27/2001 The so-called economic "stimulus" bill collapsed in Congress just before the holidays, and it's just as well. The new year provides President George W. Bush a golden opportunity to use his State of the Union Address to propose a true economic growth package based on real prosperity policies: deep and permanent tax rate reductions and reforms accompanied by a significant weeding out of excessive regulations.

'Tis the Season for Daschle to Compromise

© 2001 Copley News Service When the economy does well, class warriors in Sen. Tom Daschle's wing of the Democratic Party want to increase tax rates on successful people on the grounds that they should "share the wealth." When times get bad, these same class warriors argue that higher tax rates on upper-income people are required to pay for increased government benefits to those suffering from the economic downturn.
