Joseph Bast: More sanctimonious garbage from National Geographic

By Joseph Bast The November 2015 edition of National Geographic is devoted to global warming. (See excerpts I’m addressing in PDF form.)

Avik Roy: Hillary Clinton’s drug price plan would make the problem worse

By Avik Roy Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has unveiled a set of policies designed to tackle the high price of branded prescription medicines. Her plan, such as it is, wouldn’t solve the problem of high drug prices; in certain ways, it would make that problem worse. But advocates of the free market are mistaken […]

Phil Richardson: The unaffordable Health Care Act: 2016

By Phil Richardson No surprise: Obamacare costs will increase in 2016 and the fine for not having health insurance will skyrocket.

For that matter, when I write, “Belushi,” “Chaplin,” “Disney,” “Gates,” “Jobs,” “Madonna” or “Obama,” and a few hundred other family names, no further explanation is needed for readers to know who the first subject of this week’s […]

Thomas Sowell: Hillary 2.0

Thomas Sowell: Hillary 2.0

By Thomas Sowell Many people may share Senator Bernie Sanders’ complaint that he was tired of hearing about Hillary Clinton’s e-mails. But the controversy is about issues far bigger than e-mails.
