Environmental Policy Insight

by Terry Anderson, Admiral James O. Ellis Jr., David R. Henderson, John H. Cochrane, George P. Shultzvia PolicyEd
Thursday, November 14, 2019

Whether it is climate change, polluted oceans, or smoggy skies, we owe it to future generations—not to mention our current well-being—to improve our environment. But finding the right answer isn’t always easy. Some proposed solutions would have large negative effects on the economy. Other ideas sound good but don’t have a significant positive effect on the environment. How can we find the best solution?

While the political work obsesses over impeachment hearings, I’ve asked the good folks at NORAD to fire up their Santa Tracker a little early this year – and be on the lookout for small aircraft heading north, to New Hampshire, from Chappaqua, New York.

A Century Of Ideas: Labor And Capital Market Policy: From Ideas To Actions Over One Hundred Years

Tuesday, November 19, 2019
Hauck Auditorium, Stanford University

Nowhere are good economic ideas more important for growth and stability than in labor and capital markets. Enormous technological, political, and demographic shifts in the past one hundred years have changed what is feasible and what works in practice. Panelists will discuss how ideas about the roles of government and private enterprise have changed, how good ideas stressing economic freedom can be advanced into action, and the influence of globalization on the ability of governments to apply good ideas to capital flows and immigration.

The Religion Of Climatism

by Josef Joffevia Commentary
Thursday, October 17, 2019

Greta Thunberg, the teenager from Stockholm, is the prophet of a new religion sweeping the West. Call it Climatism. Like any religion worthy of the name, it comes with its own catechism (what to believe) and eschatology (how the world will end). Thunberg’s bible is the latest report of the International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), which gives us 12 years to save civilization as we know it.

Caliph Incognito: The Ridicule Of Abu Ibrahim Al-Hashimi

by Cole Bunzelvia Jihadica
Thursday, November 14, 2019

The last week of October 2019 was an eventful one in the history of the Islamic State. On October 25, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, its leader and caliph, blew himself up during a U.S. special forces raid on his compound in Idlib Province, Syria. The next day, official spokesman Abu al-Hasan al-Muhajir, a potential successor to al-Baghdadi, was killed in a U.S. airstrike in nearby Aleppo Province. On October 31, the Islamic State confirmed the fatalities in an audio statement read by al-Muhajir’s replacement, Abu Hamza al-Qurashi, who went on to announce the appointment of a certain Abu Ibrahim al-Hashimi al-Qurashi as the new “commander of the believers and caliph of the Muslims.” The adjective Qurashi in their names denotes descent from the Prophet Muhammad’s tribe of Quraysh, one of the traditional qualifications of being caliph.

Review Of Open Borders

by David R. Hendersonvia EconLog
Friday, November 15, 2019

You might expect that I, as an immigrant and as an economist who favors the free movement of labor, would find the idea of open borders to be an obviously good policy. If you also learned that in 1977, the Immigration and Naturalization Service tried to deport me, you might think that I would also be emotionally, and not just intellectually, in favor of open borders. At times I have been.

‘Climatism’ And The Apocalypse

quoting Josef Joffevia National Review
Friday, November 15, 2019

The argument that some strains of environmentalism (in particularly in the area of climate change) have strongly religious characteristics is not a new one, but not all religions are the same: The defining characteristic of (again) some aspects of the current climate change crusade (I use that word deliberately) tie into a specifically millenarian religious tradition, something that is now attracting the attention it deserves.
