Dr. Merrill Matthews of the Institute for Policy Innovation says yes, but for most Americans it’s a long commute.
One goal of President Obama’s stimulus bill was to create environmentally friendly “green jobs.”
And it’s done just that. The Washington Times reports that 11 U.S. wind farms have bought nearly 1,000 electricity-producing wind turbines, creating about 4,500 jobs, uh, oversees.
See, nearly 700 of those turbines were bought from China.
Now a new American-Chinese joint venture just announced it plans to buy nearly 250 Chinese-made turbines. That venture wants 30 percent of its $1.5 billion in funding from the stimulus money.
So if you’ve been looking for work for a while, you need to know that taxpayer-financed stimulus money is creating jobs.
And you might even be able to get one of them. Just make sure you like Chinese food.
Free Minds And Free Markets - By Peter Schwartz
"A free mind and a free market are corollaries," Ayn Rand writes. What is the full meaning of a free mind? Why does force negate a conceptual consciousness? And what is the resulting connection between the value of reason and the value of capitalism?
This lecture presents the underpinnings of individual freedom—in theory and in practice. It examines the origins of the concept "force" and shows how the concept is applicable only to volitional beings. It shows why political freedom is necessary, and possible, only because man has free will. Relating these points to such developments as evolutionary psychology and behavioral economics, Mr. Schwartz further explains how our culture's view of man as a deterministic entity leads inexorably to demands for more government controls and regulations.
