  • "R.I.P."

    Tom Lantos' life story was extraordinary in many ways: Holocaust survivor, economist, and long-serving congressman who ended up being Chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee. Congress had a little more integrity with him around, and his death this past weekend was a major loss. It's also...
  • “P-4, But Little More”

    Washington may join negotiations on investment and financial services with the “P-4” group of Singapore, New Zealand, Chile and Brunei. We’re hardly opposed to this initiative, but a recent U.S. Chamber announcement went too far in expressing hope that these talks “will serve as a catalyst to open markets...
  • “It’s Confusing Being Green”

    Beware of color coding, which can inform but also inaccurately simplify. Take green, for example, which has come to be associated with the environmental movement, but over the years has also been linked to some differing concerns. Indeed, environmentalists questioning “green credentials” should realize...
  • Storm clouds on the horizon

    Today’s jobs report doesn’t paint the picture of a robust economic recovery. After excluding the 225,000 net decline in Census 2010 workers, total payrolls increased by 100,000 during the month of June. Construction and financial activities remained sore spots, shedding nearly 40K on net...

  • Introducing Smart Grid to the Public

    Smart grid is front and center in the WaPo today. The lead article expounds on the benefits of overhauling the energy grid to create a more energy efficient, effective, safer electricity distribution system -- and the paper provides an excellent chart that gives a simplified explanation on how Smart...
  • Tesla Lives! A Book Review

    My electric reading tastes led me to pick up Samantha Hunt’s new novel, The Invention of Everything Else , an attempt of sorts to revive our appreciation for Nikola Tesla. He indeed was a path-breaking electrical genius who has long since been forgotten by the general public and very much deserves being...
  • Not Out of the Woods Yet

    Today's passage of EESA 2008 is expected to help shore up troubled credit markets in the weeks and months ahead. In addition, the legislation should help to bolster investor confidence and business confidence to some extent once it is up and running; however, data released this week only served to...

  • The buying spree is over…now what?

    With the recent softness in the housing market, the end of the Federal Reserve’s mortgage-backed securities (MBS) purchase program has fueled concerns that mortgage rates could rise sharply and choke off prospects of a housing market recovery. The program only ended last week and rates climbed...

  • BBQ, Fireworks and Tea Parties

    For most Americans, Independence Day is a time to gather with family and friends to celebrate the birth of the United States and to honor the brave men and women whose sacrifices secured our freedom. We fire up the grill, chill the beer, don our red, white and blue, sing along to patriotic tunes, and...
  • What's at stake in the new administration

    At NAM 's conference last week, former Michigan Governor and current NAM President John Engler laid out what's at stake for U.S. manufacturers with the Obama administration and the 111th Congress coming to town next month. First, you have the agenda of the environmental community, including climate...
