Congress Poised In 2015 To Order Edit Of The Federal Reserve Long Sought By Ron Paul, by Stephen Dinan, at washingtontimes.com. I’ll believe it when I see it. I doubt the Senate Republican establishment will allow an audit of the entity that allows Government to grow bigger than tax dollars will allow. The Fed finances Government debt with electronically printed counterfeit money. It is the Governments sugar daddy.

Which Cities Benefit From Fed Money Printing, at economicpolicyjournal.com. The Feds electronically printed counterfeit money goes to financial centers and Government first. That’s why New York, San Francisco, Washington D.C., and Arlington Virginia are a few of the cities with growing average incomes. It pays to be close to the money faucet.

Liberty Slipping: 10 Things You Could In 1975 That You Can’t Do Today, at economicpolicyjournal.com. I’m sure you could think of many more than these 10 things. To add to this list, read some of the comments at the end of the article.

Child Protective Services Threatens Dad: Let Your Kids Play Outside And We Will Take Them From You, by Lenore Skenazy, at reason.com. Another example of something you were once allowed to do that you can’t do today. This is an example of an out of control Government agency.

25 Years Ago NYTimes Got Global Warming Right, by Robert J. Bradley, at mises.orgblog. The NYTimes was once a global warming denier.

Ass-Backward Productivity, by Chris Rossini, at targetliberty.com. The 113th Congress passed more bills than the previous congress. “This wasn’t the least productive congress after all”. I guess it all depends on how you define “productive”.

The Year In Oil, by economicpolicyjournal.com. Charts showing oil prices, oil production, and oil consumption.

All The Money Spent On Red Light Cameras To Stop People Running Lights Apparently Didn’t Improve Safety, by John Lott, at johnrlott.blogspot.com. Less intersection T-Bone crashes but more rear end collisions because of people slamming on brakes trying to avoid getting a ticket. Unintended consequences? Who would have thought?

Medicare Payments For Primary Care To Drop By 50% Or More In Cal, NY, Fla, and Penn, at economicpolicyjournal.com. Lets see, how does this work again? Less will be supplied at the lower price than the higher price. Health care is not a right, it is an economic good, and it will obey the economic law of supply and demand.

Why Is United Airline Suing 22-Year-Old, by Patrick Gillespie, at moneycnn.com. Computer whiz’s site finds cheaper air fare for people, and the airlines don’t like it. Incumbant businesses always think they deserve monopoly status protection from competition.

Quotation Of The Day, at cafehayek.com, and Bonus Quotation Of The Day, at cafehayek.com. Global warming predictions that have turned out to be wrong.

What America Talked About In 2014, at economicpolicyjournal.com. Top news stories of 2014. Did the news media drive the stories they wanted driven?

New Years Resolution Statistics, at statisticbrain.com. And the number one resolution is…..

New Years Resolution Cartoon.
