Less Boxing, More Economic Freedom

The second presidential debate is scheduled for Wednesday and the candidates are no doubt honing their talking points and preparing to face tough questions. To help them out, I’ve got a question of my own: Why is the United States now ranked 16th, behind Canada - Canada! - on the Fraser Institute’s index of economic freedom?

The Compassion of Competition

Those who promote strict labor regulations always couch their arguments in terms of compassion for society’s underdogs. Mandated benefits from employers are meant to help workers struggling to make ends meet. Licensing requirements on businesses are meant to protect the unwary consumer from greedy snake oil salesmen, eager to take advantage. It all makes for good TV. But like most good TV, the truth is hidden behind a thick layer of stage makeup and soft focus. The very regulations that are supposed to help the little guy actually have the opposite effect.

The NLRB's Labor Ruling Is Another Blow against Job Growth

The National Labor Relations Board has issued a decision that could have severe implications for many types of businesses across the United States. Essentially the ruling states that companies are responsible for labor practices between contractors and subcontractors. The higher-level companies will be considered “joint employers” with their independent contractors.

Keep the Internet Tax Free!

Since the early days of the internet, all levels of government have operated under a self-imposed ban on the taxation of internet access. The Internet Tax Freedom Act was first signed into law in 1998, and since then has been repeatedly reauthorized to ensure that Americans have unhampered access to the most powerful tool for information and innovation since the Gutenberg printing press.

Judge Brings California One Step Closer to Killing Uber

In the state of California, the popular ridesharing service Uber is under serious attack. We’ve covered how earlier this year, the California Labor Commission issued a ruling that the company’s drivers should be classified as employees, rather than the independent contractors Uber claims they are. This classification has major implications for Uber and all similar services in the future, since employees are subject to massive labor regulations from which contractors are exempt. The cost of complying with these regulations would be crippling, if not fatal, for Uber’s services in California, and the door would be closed on any businesses with a similarly innovative business model in the future.

How the Cadillac Tax Will Reduce Your Health Care Options

There’s a lot not to like about the Affordable Care Act – from the “if you like your plan you can keep it” lie, to rising premiums and deductibles, to the dysfunctional insurance exchanges collapsing all around the country, the law has been a great big mess from the start. But one of the most damaging features of the law has yet you show its full effect. The high-cost plan tax, often referred to as the Cadillac Tax, is scheduled to hit employers in 2018, and it’s already affecting calculations as businesses plan for the future.

Judge Blocks the EPA's Damaging Water Rule

A federal judge has granted a preliminary injunction against the EPA, stopping a controversial water regulation in 13 states. The states in question are suing to stop the new water rule, which would violate private property rights and substantially harm individuals and businesses alike. The injunction stops the EPA from enforcing its rule until the results of the lawsuit are decided.
