The Market Is Working; Government Should Let It

On September 8, 1950, President Harry Truman signed the Defense Production Act (DPA) into law. The measure gives the President sweeping authority to seize control of production in the name of national defense. Many have suggested President Trump use this authority to deal with the effects of coronavirus. Thankfully, he has mostly resisted these calls and the private sector has answered the call of duty on its own.

When Innovation Is Bad: The EU vs. Google

In its latest broadside against American technology companies, the EU last month slapped Google with a record $2.7 billion fine for leveraging its dominance as a search engine to boost Google Shopping over competing online services. This is indicative of the EU’s ongoing battle with American tech companies, with Google, Facebook, Apple, and Microsoft under constant scrutiny of the regulators in Brussels. But this EU flavor of antitrust is very different from American antitrust law and has far more to do with industrial policy than consumer protection.

A European Decision That Could Dismantle the Internet

In response to a recent legal decision in Europe, Google has released a new form for its European users that will allow them to request that links to certain articles about them be removed from the search engine. While European privacy advocates who have been pushing for a "right to be forgotten" may applaud this effort, the impact on the flow of information across the Internet is substantial.

Rather than an open and public exchange of information, Europe's new law injects an online censor to govern the accessibility of freely available public information.

'Net Neutrality' Did you mean: Net Cartel

Benjamin Franklin once said, “Anyone who trades liberty for security deserves neither liberty nor security.”  Those who favor the Net Cartel creating legislation known as “net neutrality,” like Google, MoveOn.org and high-tech lobbyists, seek to trade our economic liberties all in the name of security.  The companies that support this legislation want to get their hands on the broadband technologies already offered by other com

Google shows "Net Neutrality" hypocrisy by blocking phone calls

Last week, it was reported in the NY Times and elsewhere that Google was blocking access to certain phone numbers by its Google Voice phone service.  NPR also has a 4-minute discussion of the issue which is fairly informative.
