- “The New Feudalism: Why States Must Repeal Growth-Management Laws,” by Randal O’Toole
When the House GOP leadership unveiled the American Health Care Act, I wrote that it “merely applies a new coat of paint to a building that Republicans themselves have already condemned.” All these amendments do is paint the shutters a different color. Even with these amendments, the AHCA would be worse than doing nothing.
Minimum wages cause surpluses of labor, not shortages.
While it is extremely rare for one part of the government to file a brief in opposition to another part, it is not entirely surprising in this case.

When the Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten published cartoons of the prophet Muhammad in 2005, Denmark found itself at the center of a global battle about the freedom of speech. In The Tyranny of Silence, Flemming Rose, then the paper’s culture editor and principally responsible for publishing the cartoons, writes about the people and experiences that have influenced his understanding of the crisis, including meetings with dissidents from the former Soviet Union and ex-Muslims living in Europe. He provides a personal account of an event that has shaped the debate about what it means to be a citizen in a democracy and how to coexist in a world that is increasingly multicultural, multireligious, and multiethnic. Now available as a fully unabridged audiobook on Audible.com.
