A Corporate Wealth Tax Would Be A Disastrously Regressive Tax

A few weeks ago, a couple of professors from Rutgers University, published an editorial in New Jersey’s leading newspaper, the Star Ledger, in which they called for a corporate wealth tax; i.e., not a corporate income tax (which they undoubtedly would not repeal), but a tax on the actual increase in a company’s value.

New Study Reveals That WNBA Players Earn Less Than NBA Players!

(This is called “satire.” Please do not contact us to complain it is “fake news.”) Princeton, NJ:  The NBA says it’s committed to progressive values, but apparently equal pay for equal work isn’t one of them. Economists at the Institute for Advanced Study have today released their much anticipated, groundbreaking report on wage inequality in […]

Bernie and AOC Want to Turn Your Credit Cards into Their Welfare Program, and the Post Office into a Welfare Office!

The Loan Shark Prevention Act would socialize credit markets, and force the Post Office to cash bad checks. Here’s a good rule of thumb: If you find yourself agreeing with Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on any matter of economics, you should probably rethink your position, wonder where you went wrong, and withdraw from commenting […]

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was Right! Twice! In the Same Week! (Accidentally).

Governor Murphy’s Private Sector Retirement Scam is a Giant Kickback to Wall Street

Murphy’s “Secure Choice Savings Program” is his attempt to raid private savings and amass a large stockpile of money from which his Wall Street buddies can pilfer hundreds of millions of dollars in exorbitant management fees every year.   Ronald Reagan once said that “the nine most terrifying words in the English language are ‘I’m […]

Government Can Solve the Savings Crisis with Small Matching Contributions to Retirement Accounts

A federal program that matches up to $500 in contributions to retirement accounts would cost one-thirteenth what Social Security does, provide triple the payout, turn every American into a millionaire, and solve our national savings crisis.  And we could still keep Social Security on top of that.    Perhaps the greatest crisis facing this country […]

The Blithe Ignorance of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Shows Why Socialism Appeals to Millennials

It sounds like the plot of some brain-dead Hollywood comedy that has already been made too many times: Movie executive: OK, here’s an idea. You know those geniuses who Jay Leno used to interview on the street who couldn’t answer basic questions like who the vice president is, or what Columbus Day celebrates? Well, what […]
