Bans On Fracking And Nuclear Power

by John H. Cochranevia The Grumpy Economist
Friday, September 13, 2019

Houston, They Have A Problem

by Bill Whalen mentioning Condoleezza Ricevia Forbes
Friday, September 13, 2019

About that headline: it’s a variation of a line from the 1995 film Apollo 13 (astronaut Jim Lovell, played by Tom Hanks, informing NASA’s mission control about his crippled spacecraft: “Houston, we have a problem”). In real life, those words weren’t uttered.

Michael Grossberg On Libertarian Futurism And Pretty Much Everything

by David R. Hendersonvia EconLog
Thursday, September 12, 2019

I’m not big on libertarian futurism or on science fiction. I’m not bragging. On the contrary, I think it’s due to my lack of imagination. So when I recommend an interview on the Libertarian Futurist Society’s (LFS) Prometheus Blog, you can be fairly confident that it would interest not just libertarian futurists but also libertarians and maybe even an audience broader than that.

Stock Gyrations

by John H. Cochranevia Grumpy Economist
Wednesday, February 7, 2018

Is this 1929, the beginning of the end? Or 2007? Is it 1974, annus horribilis in which the stock market drifted down 40% having something to do with stagflation, and did not recover until the 1980s? Is it 1987, a quick dip followed by recovery in a year?

No, Republicans Aren't Waging A War On G-Men

quoting Victor Davis Hansonvia New York Post
Wednesday, February 7, 2018

The Republican Party is the law-and-order party. That’s not new, and it isn’t seriously contested. However, according to liberal media outlets such as the Huffington Post, Republicans are waging a “war on G-men.” The idea that Republicans are suddenly splitting from the FBI is a fantasy designed by the Democrats to attack a GOP strength and to distract from the growing revelations about anti-Trump maneuvering by a few senior FBI officials.

Small Towns, Big Companies: How Surveillance Intermediaries Affect Small And Midsize Law Enforcement Agencies

by Anne Bousteadvia Hoover Institution Press
Wednesday, February 7, 2018

This paper explores how efforts by companies to resist government requests for consumer information may disproportionately affect small and mid-sized law enforcement agencies, as small departments face obstacles to using commercially collected information that do not occur in the context of larger departments. Differences between law enforcement agencies that serve large communities and those that serve small communities suggest corresponding differences in their ability to adapt to changes in the process for obtaining data from digital communication companies.  Failing to account for these differences may encourage policies that will only work as expected for large law enforcement agencies.

Compliance Costs Of Federal Income Taxes Are Over 1 Percent Of GDP

by David R. Hendersonvia EconLog
Wednesday, February 7, 2018

Benzarti estimates the perceived compliance costs to tax filers by computing whether there were "too few" taxpayers with itemized deductions slightly greater than the standard deduction threshold. Taxpayers who might save a few dollars by itemizing might decide that itemizing was not worth the effort; those who could save much larger amounts would presumably incur the cost of keeping records and itemizing their deductions.
