Don't Reform the Fed, Fed-Exit!

Opponents of a central bank should take advantage of the post-Brexit vote revival of secessionist sentiments to promote a secession from central banking, or "Fed-exit." Ending the Federal Reserve's monopoly on money is the key to restoring and maintaining our liberty and prosperity.

From Coast-to-Coast, Thousands Line Up for Jobs

Between today and November, political incumbents and their challengers will make a lot of promises to disgruntled voters. One of the most often repeated will be that, if elected, the first matter of business will be to create more jobs for the struggling economy.

What I Brought With Me to the Republican National Convention

The national political conventions are a lot like professional wrestling. Sure, we know what's going to happen, but every four years, it's fun to see who's throwing around chairs and getting slammed into the turnbuckle.

Take a Breath, Folks, 2016 is not 1968

The latest fad, propagated by many members of the commentariat, is to equate the America of 2016 with the America of 1968. I heard it more recently from Chuck Todd of NBC News: "Not since the summers of the '60s and violence in Watts, Detroit, and Chicago has the nation felt so hopelessly divided."

A Warning on Drug Pricing from Bill Gates

One of the most popular punching bags on the presidential campaign trail this year is America's biopharmaceutical industry. Bashing drug companies was telegraphed early on as a key Democratic strategy to shift the blame for the failure of Obamacare to contain health care costs away from the Democratic/insurance industry alliance that wrote the law.

Who Will Win the Hillary Clinton Veepstakes?

A Vice Presidential pick is a defining moment in a campaign, motivating nominees to utilize unique strategies. Some try to accentuate their heavyweight status by partnering up with less vibrant versions of themselves in what might be called the "Bad Xerox Without Any Toner" maneuver. Think... Dan Quayle.
