This pattern of government action shows up in all areas of government policy." Dean Baker "When the modern corporation acquires power over markets, power in the community, power over the state and More ››

By: C.Jay EngelIn a recent interview on CNBC's Squawk Box, Neel Kashkari explained his dissenting position on the March rate hike. His position was that there is not yet enough inflation. In fact, he thinks that the Fed's 2% inflation target shouldn't be seen as a hard ceiling. He even stated that predictions of coming inflation worries are baseless:For the last five or six years, the Federal Reserve keeps predicting inflation is around the corner. And those predictions end up being wrong.Of course, with the massive expansion of the Fed's balance sheet going into areas like the stock, bond, and More ››

By: Ryan McMakenAs the immigration debate goes on, many commentators continue to sloppily ignore the difference between the concept of naturalization and the phenomenon of immigration. While the two are certainly related, they are also certainly not the same thing. Recognizing this distinction can help us to see the very real differences between naturalization, which is a matter of political privilege, and immigration, which simply results from the exercise of private property rights. Immigration results naturally from allowing persons to exercise their property rights. Naturalization, on the other hand, is a political act. Naturalization Is about Politics, not PropertyNaturalization is More ››

By: Alice SallesGovernment's meddling in the healthcare business has been disastrous from the get-go.Since 1910, when Republican William Taft gave in to the American Medical Association's lobbying efforts, most administrations have passed new healthcare regulations. With each new law or set of new regulations, restrictions on the healthcare market went further, until at some point in the 1980s, people began to notice the cost of healthcare had skyrocketed.This is not an accident. It's by design.As regulators allowed special interests to help design policy, everything from medical education to drugs became dominated by virtual monopolies that wouldn't have otherwise existed if More ››

After the election, we believe the price of gold came down as the market priced in higher real interest rates in anticipation of lower regulations. We indicated that this euphoria will cede to realism, meaning that regulations might not be cut quite as much. We also suggested that any fiscal stimulus on the backdrop of low employment may be inflationary. That is, expectations of higher real rates might be replaced with expectations of higher nominal rates; net, bonds might not change all that much, but the price of gold may well rise in that environment.
