Biden's Confiscatory Tax Plans Unleash Class Warfare

by Joshua D. Rauh, Aharon Friedmanvia The Hill
Wednesday, June 9, 2021

In his latest economic policy proposals, President Biden has laid out a wish list of tax increases to help pay for his administration’s proposed massive spending increases. His rhetoric, which accuses “corporate America and the wealthiest 1 percent of Americans” of not paying their “fair share,” is a well-worn page from the class warfare playbook. Unfortunately, it perpetuates many misconceptions about the U.S. tax system and ignores the extreme negative effect that these tax hikes would have on investment, work and wages.

by Niall Fergusonvia Spiked
Friday, June 11, 2021

It is often said that the Covid pandemic is ‘unprecedented’. It is true that societies across the globe have never been shut down to this extent, in an attempt to contain a virus. But in many ways, Covid-19 itself just another entry on the long list of human catastrophes.

The End Of "The End Of Inflation"

by John H. Cochranevia Grumpy Economist
Thursday, June 10, 2021

This spring's spurt of inflation clearly already means one thing: The end of "the end of inflation." For 25 years inflation has seemed stuck on a downward trend. Those of us who worry about it seemed like end-of-the-world sign-holders that couldn't leave the 1970s behind. It's hard to buck the trend. A famous economist advised me to give up studying inflation -- inflation is 2%, he said, that's all you need to know. Apparently a new constant of nature.

Why Won't Banks Take Your Money?

by John H. Cochranevia Grumpy Economist
Thursday, June 10, 2021

Why would bankers not want to take any amount of deposits, park them in reserves at the Fed or short term Treasury bills, charge fees and a slight interest spread, and sign up for an early tee-time at the local golf club? Sure "net interest margin" or other metrics might not look good, but money is money and more money is more money.
