Don't Bring Back Glass-Steagall

An issue that has a tendency to come into the public consciousness from time to time is bringing back Glass-Steagall.

In a new working paper from the Mercatus institute, however, Edward Timmons joins the fray, demonstrating that many licensing restrictions on medical providers exist not to protect consumer welfare, but to limit competition among doctors, resulting in higher prices and less choice for consumers.

Website Woes Indicate Waste as Obamacare Spending to Skyrocket

This morning, I walked through the rain to work. After arriving at the office, I proceeded to make myself a cup of coffee and log on to my computer.  The first thing I did was visit the Drudge Report to find out the big headline news today. What I found nearly made me throw my coffee at the computer screen.
