AWEA and the Wind PTC: Blowing Hot Air

The Wind Industry is a universal model for efficiency… not in energy production, but in marketing its product. Only the best and brightest marketing team, like our friends at the American Wind Energy Alliance (AWEA) could convince so many Americans and their lawmakers that the federal government should continue to subsidize and industry that is the model of inefficiency in the energy sector.

A Fiscal Cliff Litmus Test: The Wind Energy PTC

Over the next two months, members of Congress, the President, and his staff will be tasked with addressing and correcting the issues of debt, taxes, and spending, unmasked by nearly half a decade of weak economic growth. These issues are complicated no matter how easy either side portrays their solution to be. Years of ambivalence towards the cyclical issues surrounding the country’s finances and economy have led many to make inefficient decisions, and come to depend on the status quo.

No Official Has a Mandate

Politicians love to talk about a "mandate" when they are elected, as if the margin of their victory or the issues on which they ran their campaigns form a basis for governing. In fact, the only mandate an elected official has is to perform his duties.Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) underscored that idea in the current political environment in a speech to the Senate:

Obama's Parting Gift: Midnight Regulations Incoming

Win or lose, the Obama administration isn't done expanding the government yet.  A large number of regulations are under development in several agencies that will cost billions of dollars in the economy and devastate companies already struggling to profit and expand in this sluggish economy.  Even if President Obama is defeated, his administrations can act during the "lame duck" period between the election and the inauguration to leave behind new regulations that will be difficult for a Romney administration to repeal - a practice known as creating "midnight regulations".

Hurricane Sandy, Frédéric Bastiat, and "Econ 101"

As the Hurricane Sandy recovery effort begins, the most recent reports put the American death toll at 88 lives. Estimates of the economic damage caused by the storm vary, but some put the figure at a staggering $50 billion. Like clockwork, however, a handful of "economists" have crawled out of the woodwork to proclaim that there's a silver lining to the disaster: Ultimately, this will help the economy!

Office Hours with Dr. Brough: “The Constitution, Taxes, and Social Security”

Our first ever “Office Hours” segment was a fantastic success last week. Thanks to everyone’s support the link was shared more than 16,000 times on Facebook. Numerous questions were sent to our e-mail account, and, while we wish we could answer them all, time allows for only a few.

FreePAC: Great Speakers and Great Training

FreedomWorks put on another of its great FreePAC events on Saturday, October 13, this time in front of a crowd of 1,600 in Phoenix, AZ and 13,000 over the Internet. As is always the case, the combination of training session and freedom rally proved to be a winner.The line up of speakers included Glenn Beck, with what many are calling his best speech ever. But I'd never heard Michelle Ugenti, Greg Abbott, Matt Salmon, or Jim Waring speak, and I came away impressed with all of them.Two more FreePAC events will happen before the election: October 19 in Kissimmee, Florida and October 26 in Schaumberg, Illinois.

Office Hours with Dr. Brough: “Is Obama’s Recovery Working?”

We get a lot of e-mails at FreedomWorks from people who want to know which economic policies we endorse and why we endorse them. This is a good thing. Economics is a specialty, and it does the republic no good when people pretend to understand economics but aren’t available to discuss their ideas. (This is only a slight jab at Paul Krugman’s debate jitters).
