  • Rule by decree is democratic

    In your recent editorial, "Venezuela's Theoretical Democracy", you compare President Hugo Chavez to a dictator while simultaneously acknowledging that major democratic hallmarks have been implemented under his administration. As Venezuela's ambassador...
  • Buying freedom of speech

    I was deeply disturbed by The Times editorial on malls as free-speech zones, both for its content and for the clear conflict of interest. Years ago, almost every locality had its own independent newspaper and often several newspapers. The small...

    Big Labor's expectations of Obama
    Today's topic: What should we expect from the Obama administration on labor unions? Previously, David Madland and Shikha Dalmia debated the impact unions have on ailing U.S. automakers and whether the trend of declining union membership will reverse....

    What's the right role and structure for Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac? How about the Federal Housing Administration? Previously, Abromowitz and Mitchell discussed John McCain’s proposal for the government to buy bad mortgages, the biggest players in...
  • Wheres the balance on Chavez?

    The Times printed an editorial on Venezuela's recent national referendum. I am particularly concerned because your editorial, like many in other newspapers, strongly echoed the opinions of the Bush administration, failed to provide needed balance and...
  • Free Sam Zell!

    The funniest thing about anti-media activists — whoops, I mean "public interest groups" — is that their sky-is-falling brief against big media consolidation always (and I mean always) disintegrates on contact with what I like to call "personal experience....
  • Something's fishy in Peru

    Are food and drink -- their need, their taste, their origin -- hot political matters? Yes they are, at least here in Peru, where the politics of catastrophe have collided with South American squabbles twice recently. The first fracas was the canned...
  • Mexico's spreading drug violence

    Mexico's spreading drug violence
    In the interest of national security, the United States must aggressively police its border with Mexico. But the cause of concern is not the northward flow of migrants and drugs. Rather, our focus should be on the southward flow of arms and ammunition...
  • Who are you not calling a petro bully?

    I cannot understand why Michael Ross ignored the very best evidence for his contention that the "link between oil riches and bad international behavior is even deeper than it appears." He never mentions President Bush or Vice President Dick Cheney, nor...
