Kicking Off a Season of Economic Growth

Copley News Service, 01/31/2001 Washington, D.C., is a funny place. It's probably the only place on Earth where a majority of people turn to the editorial page of the newspaper before they read the sports page, and they think the rest of the world does, too. But Monday, I bet even the politicians read the sports page first to see who won the Super Bowl.

Issue Analysis 115 - "Sprawl" in North Carolina: The Rest of the Story

Alarmists have warned that so-called "urban sprawl" is devouring North Carolina, threatening the environment and quality of life. A closer look reveals that while developed areas have grown substantially, the vast majority of the state is still undeveloped, the pace of development has slowed, and other states have seen far more rapid growth. Rather than statewide "growth-management" plans or federal intervention, striking a balance between growth, development, and environmental conservation requires a common-sense approach that limits the scope of government.

Pros, Cons Besiege Edwards Over Ashcroft Vote

WASHINGTON -- Tar Heels on both sides of the confirmation battle over John Ashcroft say it provides a telling test of Democratic Sen. John Edwards' political allegiances. Civil-rights groups and pro-choice organizations - key Democratic constituencies - are counting on Edwards to stand with them against Ashcroft, President Bush's nominee for attorney general, whose views they consider extreme.

Kemp Applauds Greenspan's Message to Congress

Shortly after testimony by Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan, Empower America co-director Jack Kemp made the following statement: "Fed Chairman Alan Greenspan just made lower marginal income tax rates and a lower capital gains tax rate politically feasible and an economic imperative.

North Carolina: Don't Bet on a Lottery

South Carolina’s recent vote to allow a state lottery has renewed pressure on the Tar Heel State to introduce a lottery. Proponents claim a lottery is necessary to improve education, pointing to lottery programs in nearby Virginia and Georgia as models. Hopefully, North Carolinians will see this latest lottery proposal for what it is – a bait-and-switch proposal that allegedly will improve education. In fact, a North Carolina lottery is simply an expansion of government. Traditionally, North Carolina lottery proposals have been defeated by a left-right coalition rallying behind the detrimental social ills linked to gambling. But there also exists a strong economic argument against the proposed lottery. Contrary to popular myths, lotteries are not stable sources of revenue, there is no link between lotteries and school funding, and a lottery is not likely to reduce political pressure to raise taxes.
