Would Fredric Bastiat Support High Speed Rail?

Recently, President Obama's Council of Economic Advisers released their final assessment of the president's $780 billion stimulus package, the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. Mandated by Congress, this year's report celebrates the fifth anniversary of ARRA. Not surprisingly, the CEA asserts that the spending program was an unqualified success, creating jobs and boosting the nation's output. Yet a closer examination of the report raises a number of questions, making it difficult to embrace the study's findings. Fundamentally, the administration is taking credit for improvements in the economy, without demonstrating that ARRA is the source of the benefits. While it is normal for administrations to take credit for economic growth, correlation does not equal causation.

As His ACA Implodes, Obama Makes It Up—Illegally

The patchwork quilt that is ObamaCare remains a work in progress, with recent news that President Obama once again has extended the employer mandate deadline for certain businesses, this time pushing the enforcement date comfortably beyond the next election cycle. The latest delay has created heartburn even among Democrat supporters of the health care law. But President Obama's regulatory rollercoaster is indicative of a larger problem in Washington: the emergence of the administrative state, with the government increasingly becoming a third party to what used to be private transactions.

Why Is Business Cheering for New Regulations?

While the Obama administration has played up its independence and indifference to big business, recent announcements with respect to energy policy suggest that the administration does, in fact, cozy up to business, working in hand and glove to craft potential new regulations on energy exploration and development

Drowning in a Sea of Red Ink

A battle royal is brewing between the Republican-controlled House of Representatives and the Obama administration over increasing the debt ceiling.  The House recently rejected a “clean” bill to raise the debt ceiling that did not include any spending reforms.  With the economy lagging and voters rejecting the notion of spending our way to prosperity, the debate over spending is now front and center on the domestic policy agenda. Unfortunately, Democrats have failed to address the issue.

FCC Proposal to Regulate the Internet Would Harm Consumers, Stifle Innovation

  Federal Communications Commission Chairman Julius Genachowski’s suggested “third way” of internet oversight tries to find a middle ground where there is none.  Rather than a path between the free market and regulation, this approach opens the door to federal regulation of the internet to address problems that have yet to emerge.
