AL GORE'S HURRICANE PREDICTION - MARLO LEWIS


Revisiting Gore’s Hurricane Prediction

VIRTUOUS CAPITALISM - RYAN YOUNG

 

Virtuous Capitalism (versus rent-seeking)

 

Most—but not all!—businessmen have a sense of decency or an implicit code of honor that causes them to refrain from rent-seeking behavior, or at least do less of it than one would expect.  > Read more

Friday, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit ruled against the government in CEI’s challenge to the Transportation Security Administration’s (TSA) illegal body scanner policy. When the TSA began deploying body scanners as the primary screening method back in 2009, it failed to conduct a notice-and-comment rulemaking as required by the Administrative Procedure Act.  > Read more

OBAMA'S PROPOSED FUEL STANDARDS - MARLO LEWIS


Free Market Groups Submit Joint Comment Letter on Obama Administration’s Heavy Truck Greenhouse Gas/Fuel Economy Standards
 

EPA and NHTSA’s proposed Phase 2 greenhouse gas/fuel economy standards for heavy-duty vehicles endanger the economic viability of small-business truckers. The rule’s putative energy-security and climate benefits are entirely speculative and vanishingly small at best. The agencies fail to demonstrate that, absent regulation, truckers won’t make cost-effective investments in fuel-saving technology. If EPA wants to know why heavy trucks don’t get better mileage than they do today, it should look itself in the mirror. > Read more

Though it is true that employment in exporting sectors might decline, this does not mean that U.S. is losing jobs on net.> Read more
