Janitors – like G.E. shareholders – pay no taxes!  (Or so should say Sen. Bernie Sanders).  Steve Landsburg puts it all in proper perspective.

In today’s New York Times, my friend David White argues eloquently against a G.O.P.-sponsored proposal on Capitol Hill to allow state-level protection of wine wholesalers.  These wholesalers don’t want to compete with wineries who are now allowed to ship wine directly (the horrors!) to out-of-state customers.  Speaking as a wino – but even more as an economist – I can only cheer David’s superb essay.

In today’s Investor’s Business Daily I try to calm fears that America is ‘running out of oil.’  (Coincidentally, David White – see above – was instrumental in helping me with this essay on oil.)

Here’s the Wall Street Journal‘s Mary Anastasia O’Grady on Jimmy Carter’s recent visit to Cuba and his making nice with the Brothers Castro.

Jim DeLong explains some of the dangers of centralized medical-care provision.

Veronique de Rugy argues powerfully for the elimination of the Alternative Minimum Tax.

Mark Perry posts a telling picture of the U.S. balance of payments.
