Trade is not our enemy: Wesbury’s Monday Morning Outlook We think it was Art Laffer who said it best. Let’s say the US invented a cure for cancer and China a cure for heart attacks. If China decided to ban the cure for cancer, should the US retaliate by banning the cure for heart attacks? […]

Keep It Simple (Stupid), KISS The biggest tax debate in Washington right now is not between Republicans and Democrats, but between Republicans and Republicans.

A memorable part of President Trump’s inaugural speech pointed to mothers and children trapped in poverty, rusted-out factories, a flawed school system, and crime and gangs and drugs.
