The Writers Strike and Jay Leno’s Monologue

I am an economist, not a lawyer, and so I won’t comment on the validity of the union claim. Leno is a member of the Guild, and could very well be contractually bound in such matters (though NBC predictably challenges this claim). On the other hand, even if something might ...

California Lights the Way: Legislature Could Become Global Internet Regulator

Last week Governor Schwarzenegger created a new state agency to help Californians protect their personal information online. With more than one million cases of identity theft reported in California last year, the Office of Information Security and Privacy Protection will serve as a valuable educational resource to help residents stem ...

Wal-Mart Increases Employee Health Benefits

Beset by threats of tailor-made state and local laws intended to force it to increase workers’ health care benefits, retail giant Wal-Mart is providing health coverage to more of its employees. In 2008, Wal-Mart will provide employees with $4 co-payments for 2,400 generic drugs and will offer health insurance with ...

Healthy San Francisco raises costs for everyone

Two years ago, our family moved from San Francisco to Marin County, motivated partly by high prices in San Francisco restaurants. Now we mostly dine north of the Golden Gate Bridge and for 2008 we were prepared to give up on San Francisco entirely. The reason? San Francisco’s Health Access ...

California’s Public Retiree Health Care Liabilities

Although we have no time for Governor Schwarzenegger’s California Health Deforminator Model ABX1 1, we’re sure glad he struck a commission to get a handle on the state’s public sector retiree health benefits.

California’s Affluent Schools Ooze Corruption

UGotNerve, August 14, 2008 Human Events, January 8, 2008 When middle-class parents in California opened their newspapers recently and read that the leviathan Los Angeles Unified School District had overpaid their employees by $53 million, many likely took comfort in the belief that at least the school districts in their ...

Reality Check in Aisle 3: Safeway Has No Place In California’s Health Reform Debate

Perhaps the most hypocritical element of California Health Deforminator Model ABX1 1, the deal forged between Gov. Schwarzenegger and Assembly Speaker Nuñez, is the omnipresence of Safeway CEO Steve Burd at the governor’s side whenever he talks up the so-called “reform”. Mr. Burd has become the governor’s number one corporate ...

Waiver Denial: All Pain or All Gain?

On December 19, the federal government denied California a waiver to impose vehicle standards more stringent than national standards under a law passed five years ago, Assembly Bill 1493. The gambit is another example of California’s counterproductive energy policy, heavy on government intervention. California has set climate policy goals to ...
