The DOJ Goes after Big Banks - but why not the Fed?

I don’t often quote scripture in service of a point, but when I heard that the Justice Department is pursuing legal action against many of the world’s largest banks, charging them with illegal currency manipulation, I couldn’t help but think about this line from Matthew.:

As Technology Expands Medical Access, Government Restricts It

Innovation is a remarkable thing. It makes everything faster, cheaper, and more accessible to average people. Innovation lifts all boats, but especially those of the underprivileged. The rich will always have access to the very best, but innovation levels the playing field by bringing formerly out-of-reach luxuries to the masses.

ObamaCare is Driving Health R&D Overseas

Much has been written on the variety of ways in which ObamaCare is making life more difficult for Americans. The millions of plan cancellations and rising premiums have been justifiably getting the lion’s share of media coverage, but with any law as broad and far-reaching as ObamaCare, there are bound to be other, more indirect effects that, while equally important, are less obvious or easy to pin down.

ObamaCare Messaging to Devolve into Petty Threats

It would be hard to describe last year’s ObamaCare enrollment period as anything other than a disaster. It started with the hopelessly dysfunctional HealthCare.gov website. Then, when enrollment numbers fell consistently short of the administration’s projections, repeated extensions were necessary to achieve the desired final number. In light of this, one might think that there’s no way the 2015 enrollments go any worse.

Ceding Control of the Internet to Foreign Governments

Back in March, the U.S. government announced that it would relinquish control over ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. This is the organization that is responsible for managing how domain names are assigned on the internet, and until now, it has been under fairly tight supervision from the Commerce Department.

The IRS and ObamaCare: Letting the Fox Guard the Henhouse

When Congress drafted the most sweeping and disruptive set of health care regulations America has ever seen, a multi-thousand page monstrosity that no one even read before voting on, they needed an agency to enforce the dozens of new taxes, mandates, and penalties that were to be an integral part of ObamaCare. But which?

Ex-Im’s Green Energy Corruption Goes Deeper than Solyndra

By now, most people following the continuing saga of the U.S. Export-Import Bank have heard about how it guaranteed loans to now-bankrupt solar energy company Solyndra. Solyndra was a big news story when it went bust, because of the stimulus money it took and the preferential treatment it was given because green energy mandates took preference over sensible investment.

What Title II Regulation of the Internet Actually Means

There is a great deal of discussion today about empowering the FCC to regulate internet services providers as if they were public utilities. Supporters of Net Neutrality tend to think this is a good idea, because they fear that ISPs will give discriminatory access to bandwidth, creating a so-called “internet fast lane” for companies with enough capital to pay.

Should We Treat the Internet Like a Utility?

The FCC is looking to get its hands on the internet again, this time with a set of sweeping set of regulations known as Title II. Essentially, this would allow the internet to be regulated like any other public utility. Defenders of the plan argue that regulation is necessary to preserve competition and protect small startup companies.

Atlas Shrugged Part III is in Theaters Today!

Doctors forbidden from treating their patients as they see fit. Bankers forced to loan to those who cannot possibly pay their debts. Teachers prevented from inspiring and motivating students due to government standards. Does this look like an accurate description of 21st century America? It’s also a description of the world Ayn Rand feared and predicted more than half a century ago. For over fifty years, a silver screen adaption of one of the most powerful, prescient, and influential novels in history has eluded Hollywood. But no more.
