NEWARK, NJ — November 30, 2020 — I have written in this space in the past about how polarization in America is really about a tale of two economies and their respective labor markets. This division, of course, has created a prism through which each approaches policy. Therefore, it would come as no great secret that blue state economies would …

Bad Polling Can Also Be a Form of Voter Suppression

NEWARK, NY — November 17, 2020 — We have heard a lot in recent years about voter suppression. Voter ID laws, for example, are an effort to suppress the vote. Because poor people may not have driver’s licenses, especially minorities, a requirement to acquire a picture ID only erects an obstacle to voting, thereby suppressing the vote. Even if states …

LONG ISLANY, NY — November 16, 2020 — Social issues are too often used to separate us from our money at the polls. And while decent people are inclined to support such issues, they often don’t recognize that they have voted away their financial futures.   There is reason to be suspicious when words like racism, sexism, homophobia, and privilege …

NEWARK, NY — October 19, 2020 — As we move into the two final weeks of the 2020 election, we are once again hearing about taxes. The Trump people claim that Biden will raise everybody’s taxes, and Biden claims that Trumps tax cuts need to be repealed because they have only benefitted the wealthy. Well they are both right and …

GROVE CITY, PA — September 24, 2020 —In Friedrich Hayek’s 1954 book Capitalism and the Historians, the late French philosopher and political economist Bertrand de Jouvenel noted a baffling historical trend: “Strangely enough, the fall from favor of the money-maker coincides with an increase in his social usefulness.” In surveying the history of capitalism from its inception in the late …
