The working wage
Every time I’ve gotten into a written or verbal discussion about minimum wage laws (or the relatively new crusade for a “living wage,” which is another exercise of compulsive power beyond what the law requires, premised on the idea that business owners who obey the minimum wage laws are nonetheless greedy villains) someone objects that people “deserve” so much better than the paltry whatever-dollars-per-hour, and | Read More »

Obama Plan to End Small Business Programs Will be Stealthy
How many times have you heard President Obama talk about the importance of small businesses in America? Dozens? Hundreds? He’s right about how important small businesses are to the U.S. economy. According to U.S. Census Bureau data, small businesses are responsible for over 90 percent of net new jobs in America.

Steve Jobs for President
Peggy Noonan has a great piece in this weekend’s Wall Street Journal about work and the American character, what it instills in us and what is missing in America now with our depressed job market. A job, she writes, is what integrates you into society, to the national fabric of our country, and she’s right. Work earns you a reward for the blood, sweat and | Read More »

The Cult of Liberalism
Religions are largely kept together by the faith of the followers as opposed to proof. Whether it’s Christianity, Judaism, Islam or any other religion, it’s not science or empirical evidence that keeps millions or billions of people believing, it’s faith. Indeed, religions are full of claims that our current scientific knowledge would say are impossible, but nonetheless, faith persists. Given horrific events that seem to | Read More »

Life on the margins
Early in his 2012 run for the presidency, Newt Gingrich remarked, “I don’t think right-wing social engineering is any more desirable than left-wing social engineering. I don’t think imposing radical change from the right or the left is a very good way for a free society to operate.” He was referring specifically to Paul Ryan’s Medicare reform proposals, which led to a bit of tension | Read More »

Over and out for the middle class
The latest gaudy repackaging of Barack Obama’s cobwebbed economic “ideas” is to declare them a “middle-out” approach to growth. It doesn’t really mean anything – it’s just the latest effort to make the Sainted Middle Class feel as if Democrats really, really, really care about them. Republicans use such language, too. The entire political class speaks always and only to the Sainted Middle Class. A | Read More »
Jobs are the answer to social questions
In this hour of social unrest, let me take a moment to trumpet free-market capitalism as the answer to most of the big vexing questions. Capitalism is the practical expression of freedom. It is also fertile soil for cooperation. Cooperation is the universal solvent for unrest. People who are cooperating are not at war with one another. They may still harbor unfriendly thoughts about each other, but | Read More »
