Castro’s Abandonment of Socialist Principle

Forty years ago, Fidel Castro began his quest to convert Cuba into a socialist paradise. Nationalizing the means of production, the Cuban government became the sole employer, and everyone was required to become a loyal employee of the state. Today, Cuba's socialist system is much like those old, dilapidated ... [click for more]

Support Cuban Dissidents-Lift the Embargo

If the Cuban authorities persist in jailing Cuban citizens for criticizing Cuban socialism, they might have to implement a new five-year plan for prison expansion. I recently spent a week in Cuba. Since the United States embargo against Cuba makes it a criminal offense for Americans to spend money there, I had ... [click for more]

Robbery with an Environmental Badge

As the federal government has devoted itself to rescuing Americans from more perils, fair treatment of individuals is a luxury that the government can no longer afford. Few programs better illustrate the modern contempt for due process than Superfund. Congress enacted Superfund in 1980 to deal with the problem of abandoned hazardous waste sites.

Book Review: Is There a Third Way?

Is There a Third Way? by Michael Novak (London: Institute of Economic Affairs, 1998); 62 pages; £6.00.

While ... [click for more]

The King’s False Legacy

You have to wonder about the monarch who is so beloved by American presidents, Henry Kissinger, and the big establishment media. That's the case with King Hussein of Jordan. The encomiums got a little extreme. President Clinton somehow learned that this "magnificent man" who "lived his life on a higher plane" was already in paradise. One ... [click for more]

Brazil and the Crisis of Paternalism

After the Brazilian government devalued the Brazilian real, causing the Brazilian people to lose more than 40 percent of their savings, the Brazilian authorities issued the customary line that governments follow after a devaluation.

Pay Equity Errors

President Clinton has pledged to step up enforcement of the Equal Pay Act. The promised $14 million to fight wage discrimination was on his list of bribes to the American people, otherwise known as the State of the Union address.

Patriotism along the Southern Border, Part 3

Part 1 | Part 2 | Part 3 In 1910, Mexico celebrated the 100th anniversary of the beginning of the war for Mexican independence from Spain. The political climate in Mexico was peaceful and orderly.

Tax-Cut Fallacies

The Republican collapse on taxes is as about as surprising as an elephant's fleeing a mouse, which, come to think of it, may be exactly what's happened. It looked as though the congressional Republicans were going to make a 10 percent across-the-board unconditional tax-rate cut the centerpiece of their agenda. ... [click for more]
