The Cato Institute has released its sixth edition of its handbook on policy. I haven't read all of it yet, but I liked the section on Federal Tax Reform. If I find other goodies I'll update this post.

In case you don't know CalPERS is California’s public employees’ pension fund and it has grown into a very powerful political force thats starting to influence the private sector. The Independent Institute has more to say about its growing political influence.

Schwarzenegger Calls for Spending Cuts

Here's the money quote:

Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger used his second State of the State speech to call for spending cuts — not tax hikes — in order to close an $8.1 billion deficit, pleading with lawmakers to "ignore the lobbyists."

Update: I also liked this part of his speech:

If a politician tries to take credit for job growth, don't believe it. Ladies and gentlemen, I did not create this record number of jobs.

Businesses created them. Small businesses. Large businesses. Women-owned businesses. Minority-owned businesses.

Economic Freedom in 2005

I'm sorry I haven't blogged in a while, I've been busy and I haven't found anything interesting to blog about. This is important though. The US is no longer in the top ten of the most economically free countries in the world. On a brighter note, it does seem like the world is gradually moving towards liberalization, but there are still some who are resisting.
