NLRB JOINT EMPLOYER RULING - IAIN MURRAY


IBD: Obama Administration Labor Ruling Could Hit U.S. Businesses Hard
 

The National Labor Relations Board is expected to rule any day now in a case that will affect thousands of businesses. Firms are bracing for the fallout. > Read the IBD commentary

BACK TO SCHOOL LUNCH - MICHELLE MINTON

Back to School Lunch Scares
 

Here are a few tips to help you relax as you send your kids off into the great wide nutritional unknown. Soda won’t kill your kids. There is no doubt that excessive consumption of sugary drinks through soda or fruit juice can easily lead to a calorie surplus and weight gain. However, the occasional can of sports drink after a soccer game isn’t likely to cause any damage. > Read more

EPA POWER PLANT RULE - MARLO LEWIS

 

Clean Energy Incentive Program: New Unlawful Element in EPA’s Power Plant Rule?
 

EPA’s recently finalized Clean Power Plan (CPP) contains a key policy initiative not discussed or even mentioned in the proposed rule: the Clean Energy Incentive Program (CEIP). EPA will award extra emission allowances and emission rate credits to states that “act early” to increase generation from wind and solar power and/or reduce electricity demand via energy-efficiency measures. You might suppose EPA would explain the legal authority for a substantive policy change affecting potentially hundreds of regulated entities. So what accounts for this curious omission?  > Read more

CEI Today: Flypocalypse, college football, National Employee Freedom Week, and more 

Wednesday, August 19, 2015

FLYPOCALYPSE - MARC SCRIBNER


"Flypocalypse" Shows Air Traffic Control Too Important to Be Left to FAA
 

This past Saturday, hundreds of flights were delayed or canceled due to an air traffic control software glitch in the Washington, D.C. area. Congress will soon take up the multi-year FAA reauthorization bill. But the problems plaguing the FAA’s attempts to enter the 21st century cannot be solved by more money or more audits. Rather, fundamental institutional reforms need to be initiated as soon as possible. > Read more

COLLEGE LABOR UNIONS - IVAN OSORIO & IAIN MURRAY

NLRB Denies Petition to Form College Athlete Union, for Now

The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) yesterday denied a petition by Northwestern University football players to form a union. While this is a rare show of restraint by a labor board that, under the Obama administration, has often acted like a pro-union advocate, the ruling is on such narrow grounds that it’s difficult to draw any broader conclusions from it. > Read more

THE LIBERTARIAN MOVEMENT - LAWSON BADER

 

Weigel: The Libertarian Moment is Over, or Is It?
 

“The question is not whether the libertarian moment is over but whether libertarians can agree on a single national candidate,” says Lawson Bader, the president of the free market Competitive Enterprise Institute. > Read Dave Weigel's report in the Washington Post

NATIONAL EMPLOYEE FREEDOM WEEK - TREY KOVACS 

 

Forced Union Fees Do Not Have to Go to the Union – You Have Other Options

 

Unfortunately, many workers are unaware of their workplace rights. That is where National Employee Freedom Week (NEFW), a nationwide coalition comprised of nearly 100 organizations, provides needed help. From August 16 to 22 the campaign spreads the word that workers have more choice when it comes to paying union dues than their union tells them. > Read more

EPA SPILL - DAVID KREUTZER

Rivers of Gold and Energy Poverty

The irony with the Gold King Mine spill may be thicker than the toxic waste. The same EPA, that apparently didn’t know what happens when you blow a hole in a dam, claims clairvoyance when it comes to predicting the future climate. > Read more

ACCESS TO CAPITAL - IAIN MURRAY


Liquid Capital Was the First Killer App
 

Despite near-zero interest rates, new regulations from regulators like the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) have severely restricted the issuance of new mortgages and credit cards. Access to capital is harder to obtain. Three forms of deregulation would improve matters. > Read more

CEI - Cheers to I, Whiskey! 

Midnight tonight marks the official close of our I, Whiskey: The Spirit of the Market Indiegogo campaign! We’re so thankful to everyone who’s contributed and helped make sure I, Whiskey becomes a reality.

Have you checked out the project? I hope you will—and consider joining team I, Whiskey before we turn into a pumpkin tonight! 

My colleague and resident George Washington expert, John Berlau, even penned new I, Whiskey themed lyrics to the theme song of the popular television show Cheers, in celebration:

Mount Vernon Cheers: A Song to Commemorate I, Whiskey

I, Whiskey doesn't end with this campaign and we're excited to start working on the film this fall! Be sure to sign up for email updates to find out the release date. I hope you’ll join us in toasting the human spirit!
