End Run to a Regulatory Morass
by William Yeatman
"They are trying to get the Environmental Protection Agency to find that greenhouse gas emissions are 'pollutants' that 'endanger' public welfare, a ruling that automatically results in regulation under the Clean Air Act. This is not a good thing. As noted by my colleague Marlo Lewis . . .it would result in a regulatory nightmare."
The Energy Tax Budget
by Iain Murray

by John Berlau
"Yet the bankruptcy 'cramdown' –in which bankruptcy judges can reduce payments and modify mortgage contracts in lieu of the foreclosure that both parties agreed to as a remedy for default — as well as policies encouraging banks to ignore their contracts to the investors who own the mortgages will prevent investors from having their contracts honored. Right now, there is a vicious villification campaign targeted at William Frey, an investor in mortgage-backed securities who is suing Countrywide Financial for modifying mortgages without regard to investor interest."
Coming Soon: A Predatory, Anti-Business Federal Trade Commission?
by Wayne Crews
"Let’s just take net neutrality for now. There are plenty reasons I think it’s an outrage to regulate price and access on networks and infrastructure; but just for the moment, the entire concept rests upon numerous (I often feel deliberate, in my less-charitable moods) misperceptions or misrepresentations about competitive markets and capitalism"
