In the News Today

 

CARBS - MICHELLE MINTON

 

Study "Wounds" the Carbohydrate-Insulin Theory of Obesity
 

Last week a very interesting and, by all accounts, very well-done study made waves among the nutritional science community. For many years, the idea that reducing carbohydrates is the most effective way to reduce fat due to its effect on insulin has been rapidly gaining in popularity. This new study, however, casts serious doubt on the hypothesized mechanism by which consumption of carbohydrates, in particular, would lead to these problems. > Read more

BATTERED BUSINESS BUREAU - RYAN YOUNG

CEI's Battled Business Bureau: The Week in Regulation


Nearly 2,000 Federal Register pages contain regulations for everything from pay ratios to apricots. The SEC’s controversial Dodd-Frank regulation requiring public companies to disclose the pay ratios between their highest-paid and median-paid employees was published. It is 85 pages long. New regulations for apricots grown in Washington State; Irish potatoes grown in southeastern states; and onions grown in Idaho and Oregon. > Read the week in regulation

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: National Employee Freedom Week, libertarians, EPA spill, access to capital, and more 

Tuesday, August 18, 2015
In the News Today

 

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

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
