Trump Ushers in Financially Responsible Empire

If Russia were to enter a long term expensive military conflict it could possibly sink the entire economy or eliminate for generations Moscow’s debt free status. Sending officially invited advisors and selling top-notch equipment – has no negative long term effects. Trump isn’t the only one who sees the value into playing geopolitics on a strict budget.

Hungary Shows the Way to Help Threatened Christians, Yazidis of Syria, Iraq

Other traditionally deeply Christian nations like Spain, Portugal, Italy and Ireland need to jump on board too and follow Hungary’s bold lead. The parties that still –laughingly – dare to call themselves Christian Democrats in the European parliaments need to throw their cowardly and contemptible “me-too” open borders liberalism and cultural appeasement overboard at long last too.

Come on Treasury, Time Doesn’t Stand Still

The structural tax cuts would replace the Low-Middle Income Tax Offset (LMITO), which does nothing to improve economic efficiency, and will cost the budget about 10% more than expected. Further, all future federal governments should follow the lead of the UK Treasury in using dynamic tax analysis to give accurate information on economic efficiency and revenue estimates.

Food Is Freedom: How Washington’s Food Subsidies Have Helped Make Americans Fat and Sick

Beyond the simple fact that a tax on meat would be yet another example of government overreach, there are other problems with a meat tax. It is also based on a subjective and dubious interpretation of the effects of meat on both the environment and on personal health. Such a tax would, like existing taxes on sugar and tobacco products, disproportionately impact the poorest Americans.

America’s Financial Suicide: The Budget Deficit Rises 26% in One Year as Federal Spending Spirals Wildly out of Control

We are in the process of committing national financial suicide, and most Americans don’t seem to care.  As  you will see below, the federal budget deficit for the fiscal year that ended on September 30th was the largest in 7 years.  In fact, it was actually 26 percent larger than last year.  Federal spending is wildly out of control, and “non-discretionary spending” is projected to go through the roof in the years ahead.  Under our current system, it is literally going to be impossible to turn things around.  As the Baby Boomers continue to retire, the amount of resources demanded…

Solving Wicked Problems

Education is a ‘wicked problem’ if you go by Australian Public Service Commission criteria. The APSC has long claimed that some policy areas are so complex that they are “highly resistant to resolution.”

No, School Choice Does Not Cause ‘Segregation’

The mental gymnastics displayed by some people in order to blame school choice for Australia’s education woes never cease to amaze. A recent OECD report on school choice and equity indicated Australia has one of the most ‘segregated’ school systems in the OECD. This just means schools tend to have less diversity of student socioeconomic background — not that they are practising apartheid. And if we look at education equity in terms of what actually matters — the effect student socioeconomic background has on achievement — then Australia’s equity is actually slightly better than the OECD average. So finger-wagging at selective and…
