Time to Try a Free Market Energy Approach

September 22, 2011

By Phil Kerpen, AFP Vice President for Policy and published in the Daily Caller

Time after time, politicians believe they know best. Taxpayer-funded investments in “green jobs” have been repeatedly exposed as failures, but what F.A. Hayek called “the fatal conceit” — the idea that central economic planners have the knowledge and wisdom to make decisions for us — keeps a firm grip on Washington. Politicians seem intent on picking winners and losers, substituting their own political whim for legitimate consumer preferences, but fail to recognize the disastrous consequences.

Another Back-Room Deal: Obama’s Mortgage Refinancing “Stimulus” Plan

September 14, 2011

Facing a feeble economy, a falling approval rating, and a stubbornly-high unemployment rate, the pressure is on for President Obama to “do something” to get business activity back on track and Americans back to work. So in an address to the nation last Thursday, the President announced a new plan he thinks will do exactly that. Among the proposals, only a few have a chance of passing through the Republican-controlled House of Representatives: to conservative lawmakers, "stimulus" is a dirty word. But fortunately for the President he can proceed with one plan – a mortgage refinancing program that will cost taxpayers $600 million – entirely without Congressional approval.
