The Multifront Attack on Business Hero Elon Musk

How Ayn Rand’s Ideas Can End Big Government by Yaron Brook and Don Watkins

An Electoral College Within Each State

Instead of the United States abandoning the Electoral College, state legislatures should take us in exactly the opposite direction. From now on, they should abandon a statewide popular vote for president, and instead either appoint electors directly or implement an Electoral College-type system within each state.

The Merchant of Mars

The Merchant of Mars

The head of NASA convinces the President that space exploration should be done by private industry, and the United States government declares, “The first person to land on Mars, live there a year, and return alive owns the whole Red Planet.” Welcome to the greatest race in history.

Granny and the Anti-Capitalist Cliff

U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan, caricatured in political ads last year and again this month as pushing Granny off the cliff of Medicare, is now the running mate of the maker of RomneyCare, who is running against the maker of ObamaCare. With the consequent renewed debate over...

Socialism and the Meaning of Investment by Government

Government makes ‘investments’ in us that we can’t refuse. Many, including me, have identified the socialist premises in President Obama’s remarks on July 13 in Roanoke, VA. But are Obama’s actual policies as socialist as his socialist rhetoric? The answer is yes, but...

Read Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand

Read Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand

I do not recommend the movie based—unfaithfully, in my judgment—on Atlas Shrugged (Rand 1957) that is opening this weekend. (See my analysis of one scene from the movie and novel.) Instead, I urge every thoughtful individual to read the novel, again and again, and to...

AIG is Left Holding the Government’s Bag

On March 16, Obama said this about AIG:  I do want to comment on the news about executive bonuses at AIG. ... This is a corporation that finds itself in financial distress due to recklessness and greed. Under these circumstances, it's hard to understand how derivative...

Obama’s “Logic” on the Mortgage Crisis

In his "Remarks by the President on the mortgage crisis" on February 18, Obama stated: Our housing crisis was born of eroding home values, but it was also an erosion of our common values, and in some case, common sense. It was brought about by big banks that traded in...

The Antidote to Obama

In his Weekly Address yesterday, Obama said, “I didn’t come here to do the same things we’ve been doing … .” After all, Obama is for “change.” Before Obama took over the country, and even before Bush’s 2008 financial bailouts, federal, state, and local governments...
