The subprime crisis in historical perspective

Competitive Enterprise Institute
by Matthew Glans and Eli Lehrer


In recent weeks, it has become difficult to avoid news media warnings of economic calamity stemming from the subprime housing market collapse. For example, The Wall Street Journal recently warned that the subprime crisis could rival the fallout from Savings and Loan (S&L) meltdown in the 1990s and the bursting of the tech stock bubble in the early 2000s. ABC News has suggested that the proposed government actions to deal with the crisis do not go nearly far enough...,06330.cfm

Ron Paul on the verge of going third party

by Eric Dondero


The Libertarian Party or Constitution Party route still seems to still be up in the air. Ron Paul, famously a ditherer right up until the end, may not even know the answer to that question himself right now. Ballot access wise, the Libertarian Party makes more sense for Paul. But ideologically the CP and other Constitutionalist Parties are a better fit. But with $18.8 million raised for his effort, one thing is sure; the likelihood of Paul just quietly pulling out of the race after a few losses in early GOP primaries is very slim...

Yahoo! News

From False to Real Solutions for Climate Change

Writing for Monthly Review, Patrick Bond says, "Amidst her welcome critique of the biofuel mania, Vandana Shiva's ZNet commentary last month (December 13, 2007) also made this point: "The Kyoto Protocol totally avoided the material challenge of stopping activities that lead to higher emissions and the political challenge of regulation of the polluters and making the polluters pay in accordance with principles adopted at the Earth Summit in Rio. Instead, Kyoto put in place the mechanism of emissions trading which in effect rewarded the polluters by assigning them rights to the atmosphere and trading in these rights to pollute."

He died in America, at a new medical unit in Fort Knox - in America - where we support the troops, according to every single lapel-flag-pin-wearing politician and pundit on the airwaves, and yet, Sgt. Gerald Cassidy died neglected and unnoticed. Shame on us."
