The Problem of “Hoarding”

Share

By at Mises Wire

There is the ancient bugbear of “hoarding.” The image is conjured up of the selfish old miser who, perhaps irrationally, perhaps from evil motives, hoards up gold unused in his cellar or treasure trove—thereby stopping the flow of circulation and trade, causing depressions and other problems. Is hoarding really a menace?

In the first place, what has simply happened is an increased demand for money on the part of the miser. As a result, prices of goods fall, and the purchasing power of the gold-ounce rises. There has been no loss to society, which simply carries on with a lower active supply of more “powerful” gold ounces.

Leah Jessen is a news reporter for The Daily Signal and graduate of The Heritage Foundation’s Young Leaders Program.

A Minnesota commuter rail line is costing taxpayers approximately $22 per passenger, per trip.

“When you’re subsidizing about 80 percent of every trip on the line, it’s a really big fiscal disaster,” Annette Meeks, Freedom Foundation of Minnesota CEO, told The Daily Signal.

The Minnesota Northstar rail opened for service in the fall of 2009, providing commute by train down the 40-mile stretch of railway that runs from downtown Minneapolis to Big Lake.

The Oregon bakers who were ordered to pay $135,000 for refusing to bake a cake for a same-sex wedding filed a brief with the Oregon Court of Appeals on Monday, arguing the ruling against them was biased and violates both the Oregon and U.S. constitutions.

House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi’s husband bought up to a quarter million dollars of stock in a now financially troubled green energy company just weeks before it announced a major 2014 acquisition that sent stock prices soaring, public records show.

SunEdison told regulators last week that it is eyeing bankruptcy under the weight of $11.7 million in debt. But in late 2014,

Attorney to climate-change police: Expect a First Amendment fight

Share

By at Watchdog.org

MADISON, Wis. – In a sternly worded letter, the attorney for a limited-government group being targeted by the climate-change police is calling out the attorney general who launched an unprecedented campaign on free speech.

“The subpoena that you served on the Competitive Enterprise Institute (“CEI”) is a blatant attempt to intimidate and harass an organization for advancing views that you oppose,” wrote Andrew Grossman in the letter sent Wednesday to Claude E. Walker, attorney general of the U.S. Virgin Islands.

Grossman warned Walker that he and his climate-change cabal should be ready for a First Amendment fight.

Dear CF Friend,

I wanted to share with you some significant news from our friend David Osborne, president and general counsel at the Fairness Center—a public interest law firm in Pennsylvania dedicated to exposing government union abuse and protecting public employees.

David writes:

We’re headed to a constitutional showdown with the largest teachers’ union in the state.

Under state law, religious objectors to union membership are not required to pay the union, but they are required to send the money they would have paid the union to a charity.

Instead of simply letting religious objectors send their money to a charity of their choice, the Pennsylvania

A measure that attempted to take the power away from Missouri lawmakers and give it to the people to decide how to handle the marriage and religious liberty debate died in committee Wednesday after three Republicans voted against it.

“It is unfortunate that Republican representatives who typically campaign as conservatives refused to govern that way,” Ryan Johnson, president of the conservative Missouri Alliance for Freedom, said in a statement. “Their votes to defeat religious liberty in spite of its overwhelming support by Missourians

Twenty-five years after Anita Hill accused Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas of sexual harassment, the controversy has been revived by an HBO made-for-TV movie about the case.

During Thomas’s 1991 confirmation hearings, Hill told congressional investigators that he had made inappropriate sexual advances and comments to her while she was working as his assistant in the early 1980s. Her affidavit was leaked to the press and quickly became the center of the
