End IRS Scandals: Abolish the Corporate Income Tax

Eli Lehrer | Posted 07.19.2013 | Politics
Eli Lehrer

For all of its populist appeal, the corporate income tax is arbitrary and exempting some organizations from paying it is equally arbitrary. Abolishing the corporate tax altogether would supercharge the economy and wouldn't serve any particular set of political interests.

Jeremy Grantham Has Bad News and Good News

Grantham's greatest concern, though far from his only one, is that the world's farmers may not be able to produce enough food at affordable prices to feed the 9 billion or so people that are projected to inhabit the planet by mid-century or sooner.

Will the U.S. Swing for the Climate Change Fences?

When you think about it, if Obama is boxed in at home, what has he got to lose if he pushes for a "grand bargain" on climate issues globally?

Tom Hayden

There is little promise, so far, of a coming "reverse polarization" or evolutionary leap that might prevent the piracy of our life support nor much sign that our institutions will heed the warnings of climate scientists, and even the CIA, about the deepening eco-crisis.

An Agenda for Regulatory Reform: Think Big (and Small)

Eli Lehrer | Posted 06.17.2013 | Politics
Eli Lehrer

Poorly thought-out government regulations can do tremendous harm. To date, the Republican Party's efforts against them have been heavy on bluster and light on action. By thinking bigger and thinking smaller, however, there's a good chance that the GOP could move forward with real regulatory reform.

For Climate Change Solution, Look to Yesterday's GOP

Michael A. Livermore and Richard L. Revesz | Posted 03.28.2013 | Green
Michael A. Livermore and Richard L. Revesz

In the 1980s the GOP lead the charge in favor of the idea of using markets to control pollution. Moderate Republicans (of which there were a significant number) opted for dealing with environmental problems with economic tools that employ price signals to keep air and water clean.

Joe Keefe | Posted 05.20.2013 | Green
Joe Keefe

A carbon tax is the only step that truly enlists markets in the fight against climate change. As fossil-fuel companies are forced to pay for the damage their carbon is doing to the planet, the price of their products would rise.

Andrew Winston | Posted 05.20.2013 | Green
Andrew Winston

The defenders of the status quo argue that U.S. companies will be at a disadvantage if we tax carbon or invest in clean energy because "China's not doing anything." But there are three little problems with this logic.

No Option: An Adult Response to Climate Change

Physics also does not care about you or me or our grandchildren. If we continue to pump carbon into our overheating atmosphere, we will lose the climate conditions that have birthed and nurtured humanity for hundreds of thousands of years.
