    Government's job: stay out of the way
    For the current election cycle, "jobs" is the new black. It's the buzzword that transcends the left and the right. From the parties of Occupy Wall Street to the tea parties of last year, and from the Republican Party to the Democratic Party to the Worker'...
  • Stop the latest backdoor stimulus

    In 2009, President Barack Obama lifted the $400 billion cap off the bailout money that Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae could pass on to the taxpayers. Apparently, $400 billion wasn't enough. Fannie and Freddie are publicly owned. You and I own them and all the...

    Obama needs to get over his China envy
    Up to 40 million Chinese people still live in caves. That's more than the populations of Texas and Illinois, combined. In fairness, a fraction of these caves are apparently pretty nice, complete with electricity and well-compacted dirt floors. But that'...
  • Maryland Senate votes to tax the rich

    The state Senate voted Thursday to significantly raise taxes on Marylanders earning half a million dollars or more — prompting complaints that liberals were bent on launching class warfare in the state. The Senate's vote to adopt what is being...
  • Constellation and EDF: A marriage gone south

    Two years ago, Constellation Energy Group and its French nuclear partner EDF were BFFs. Today, with EDF seeking to torpedo the Baltimore company's plan to sell itself to Chicago-based Exelon Corp., the relationship between the former "best friends...

    In his letter ("Free trade does not kill jobs," Aug. 30), Thomas Jandl responded to my recent opinion piece in The Sun ("What's killing jobs?" Aug. 27) by questioning my analysis of our trade practices. He misunderstood the basis for the piece. His...
  • The downgrade and the aftershocks

    The downgrade and the aftershocks
    As Warren Buffett once observed, it takes about 20 years to build up a reputation and five minutes to ruin it. Last Friday's decision by Standard & Poor's to downgrade U.S. debt from AAA to AA+ was just that kind of hit — and the markets are showing...
  • Baltimore on the fast track

    Baltimore on the fast track
    One can only hope that crow tastes like chicken, because after the success of the Baltimore Grand Prix, there are a number of people dining on it this week. That may even include, gentle reader, the members of this newspaper's editorial board who,...
  • Should millionaires pay higher taxes - or just the rest of us?

    Should millionaires pay higher taxes - or just the rest of us?
    President Obama is proposing to raise taxes on millionaires in what's called the Buffett Rule. Billionaire Warren Buffett begged Congress to raise taxes on people like him, noting his tax rate is lower than his secretary's. Such a millionaire tax would...
  • Warren Buffett was right to call for higher taxes

    Warren Buffett was right for his call for higher taxes/debunking the "lost jobs" claim of the ideologues ("Buffett wants wealthier Americans taxed more," Aug. 16). Thanks to the tea party, controlling the spiraling debt is now a priority. Now the tea...
  • Free trade is destroying the American economy

    Your recent article ("Democrats press Obama on jobs tour" Aug 15) lists the people on President Obama's economic team who have come and gone: Larry Summers, Christina Romer, Paul Volker, Peter Orszag, Jared Bernstein and Austan Goolsbee. Only Ben Bernanke...
  • Warren Buffett is wrong

    Warren Buffett is wrong
    The United States tax code is so backward that billionaire investor Warren Buffett pays only 17 percent in income taxes, a rate even lower than that of his secretary. Or so he claims. While I have great respect for Mr. Buffett, and while I agree that...
