John Stossel on ObamaCare
futureofcapitalism.com

John Stossel has a new column on ObamaCare:

Obamacare has barely started taking effect, and the evidence is already rolling in. I hate to say we told them so, but ... we told them so. The laws of economics have struck back....thanks to the compassionate Congress and president, parents of sick children will be saved from expensive insurance -- by being unable to obtain any insurance! That's how government compassion works.

GE's High Speed Rail Angle
futureofcapitalism.com

Michelle Malkin notices that General Electric will get its piece of the $53 billion the Obama administration wants to spend on high-speed rail: "In another such fortuitous coincidence, one of the top beneficiaries of the new White House rail bailout is GE Transportation -- the leading manufacturer of diesel-electric locomotives. President Obama recently named GE CEO Jeffrey Immelt to head the new White House jobs council."

John Stossel is also skeptical of high-speed rail. He writes:

At last month's State of the Union, President Obama said America needs more passenger trains. How does he know? For years, politicians promised that more of us will want to commute by train, but it doesn't happen. People like their cars. Some subsidized trains cost so much per commuter that it would be cheaper to buy them taxi rides.

Review of No They Can't
futureofcapitalism.com

There have been so many pro-capitalism books by television news personalities in the past few years — Michelle Caruso-Cabrera's You Know I'm Right: More Prosperity, Less Government, Joe Kernen and Blake Kernan's Your Teacher Said What?! Trying to Raise a Fifth Grade Capitalist in Obama's America —  that when John Stossel's No They Can't: Why Government Fails — But Individuals Succeed crossed my desk, I approached it with a certain weariness. 

Mr. Stossel is great, don't get me wrong. The more television news personalities stand up for capitalism, the better. A dozen of them could write books, and they would still be a beleaguered minority. But is there anything for a reader already on the capitalist side to learn from yet another one of these books?

Yes there is. Mr. Stossel's book turns out to be quite well done. Two of the best pieces of content in the book are charts. One shows the decline in workplace fatalities per 100,000 workers between 1933 and 2005. The chart shows that "before regulation, deaths dropped just as fast." Or, as Mr. Stossel puts it, the establishment of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration "made no difference" in workplace fatalities.

Stossel on Romney
futureofcapitalism.com

John Stossel's take on Mitt Romney' speech at the Republican National Convention: "He said nothing of significance. .... Romney said he has a 'plan to create 12 million jobs.' Huh? Why not 13 million? Why not 50? Promising 12 million is an absurd conceit."
