Coal will save the economy
Published on : Saturday, January 3, 2009
The benefits of coal-generated electricity are too often ignored in public policy debates. The alleged deaths caused by coal are based on speculative links between pollution and disease, and unwarranted extrapolations from responsible estimates to levels that grab headlines and prompt contributions. Coal helps keep American homes, businesses, factories, airports, schools and hospitals humming, and provides myriad benefits that never get mentioned by anti-coal factions. Even if we accept these groups’ assertions as fact, the benefits of coal should be considered in any policy debate – just as we acknowledge (and strive to reduce) motor vehicle deaths, but recognize the value of transporting people, products and produce, writes Paul Driessen in the Townhall.
Hunger is still killing millions
Published on : Monday, December 29, 2008
The financial crisis has set the clock back in more ways than one: in December, the Food and Agriculture Organisation said the food and financial crises, which followed each other, have wiped out nearly 30 years of progress on reducing hunger and the number of hungry rose to 963 million in 2008. India, no doubt, will be hit hard because even before the meltdown, the country had a staggering 230 million undernourished people, the highest number for any one country in the world. It is estimated that 43 per cent of Indian children below five years are underweight and malnutrition is believed to account for half of child deaths, writes KumKum Dasgupta in the Hindustan Times.
Government’s non-interference will speed up the recovery process
Published on : Sunday, December 21, 2008
Government interference through providing fiscal stimulus packages, will unfortunately push the global economy into a massive depression, the very outcome that these policies are expected to prevent. A more recent example is the protracted depression in Japan even till today, despite all kinds of fiscal stimuli and quantitative easing to prop up the economy throughout the past decade. Yet, the recent Group of Twenty summit in November showed strong preference for aggressive fiscal stimulus packages, which they believe will prevent the current recession from getting uglier, writes Kaushik Das in the Live Mint.
The Krugman Recipe for Depression: Time not to follow the Nobel advise
Published on : Saturday, November 29, 2008
In a recent "60 Minutes" interview, President-elect Barack Obama said, "keep in mind that 1932, 1933, the unemployment rate was 25%, inching up to 30%." What the new administration decides about marginal tax rates also matters. Mr. Obama said in a Thanksgiving talk that he wanted to "create or save 2.5 million new jobs." People who talk about saving new jobs are usually talking about the private-sector's capacity to generate jobs in the future – not about the public sector alone. We know that the new administration is going to spend. But how? It can try to figure out a way to do that without hurting the private sector. Or it can just spend, Krugman-wise, and risk repeating the very depression we seek to avoid.
Government Made the Financial Crisis; Let Us Not Make It Worse
Published on : Friday, October 10, 2008
In view of the present financial crisis, Pierre Garello of the European Resource Bank helped draft a petition aimed at the governments and people around the world. Please consider endorsing this statement, and help introduce a degree of sanity in the ongoing discussion about the prospect of the global economy.
Former Soviet Republics most dangerous for journalists
Published on : Thursday, February 7, 2008
In ‘Muzzling the Media: The Return of Censorship in the CIS’, a report prepared by the Freedom House, it is claimed that most former Soviet states, including those in Central Asia and the Caucasus, are the most hazardous on earth, outside of active war zones, for journalists to work in. Entrenched authority in these states are increasingly unwilling to tolerate the "watchdog" role that media strives to play in open societies. Except for Georgia, ranked "partly free", all other states were rated as "not free." And, "none is moving in the direction of more freedom.”
