Take if from Europe: Give a red light to going green

Special to WorldTribune.com By Stephen Moore If you listen to the media narrative on climate change and “clean energy,” you’d think that the rest of the world has moved smartly and seamlessly toward 21st century green energy while the U.S. is the high-polluting laggard that just won’t get with the program to save the planet.

4 percent growth? Sure, why not? Welcome to the golden age of productivity

Special to WorldTribune.com By Stephen Moore Imagine if in 1961 John F. Kennedy’s advisers had told him, “We will never put a man on the moon.” Or what if Ronald Reagan’s advisers had assured the Gipper, “The Cold War is unwinnable.

Primary benefit of Fed red tape is the self esteem of unelected bureaucrats

Special to WorldTribune.com By Stephen Moore Last summer, at the first meeting of the Trump Leadership Council — an advisory group consisting of top CEOs from major companies — Donald Trump asked business leaders what their biggest problems were.

How the Trump boom can break through Washington gridlock

Special to WorldTribune.com By Stephen Moore The stock market has risen about 9 percent since the election of Donald Trump, with an increase in wealth of nearly $2 trillion.

End the foreign-aid racket. Now

Special to WorldTribune.com By Stephen Moore Donald Trump’s wise and humanitarian move to reinstate the Reagan-era “Mexico City policy,” which prohibits U.S. foreign-aid dollars from going to non-government organizations that perform or provide referrals for abortions, has incited a torrent of liberal outrage. Democratic Sen. Jeanne Shaheen of New Hampshire seethed that the edict “(favors) […]

From Obama’s ‘tooth fairy’ stimulus plan to Trump’s transfer of $10 trillion to the real economy

Special to WorldTribune.com By Stephen Moore All of Washington seems to be in cardiac arrest over news reports late last week that Donald Trump is planning a budget featuring $10 trillion in cuts over the next decade. We can only hope and pray that the reports are accurate. This is an enterprise that has been […]

Taxing American production? How the deck is stacked against U.S. companies and workers

Special to WorldTribune.com By Stephen Moore If America’s competitors intentionally tried designing a tax system to destroy the American economy, they probably couldn’t come up with a better plan than the way the United States currently taxes its own businesses. To fully appreciate the stupidity of the American corporate tax, consider this simple example: If […]

Infrastructure spending 101: Rebuild nation and lower deficit simultaneously

Special to WorldTribune.com By Stephen Moore Back in early 2015, oil and gas company ConocoPhillips requested a permit from the Obama administration to launch an oil-drilling project in Alaska. The energy project, called the Greater Mooses Tooth development, is located within the National Petroleum Reserve and would create thousands of jobs in an economically depressed […]

How’s life in the ‘progressive’ states? Like Syria, migration is in vogue

Special to WorldTribune.com By Stephen Moore The blue states of America are in a depression. I don’t mean the collective funk of liberal voters because they lost the election to Donald Trump. I’m talking about an economic malaise in the blue states that went for Hillary Clinton. Here is an amazing statistic courtesy of the […]

GOP cold shower: Trump destroyed 2 dynasties, revived Reagan Democrat ‘deplorables’

GOP cold shower: Trump destroyed 2 dynasties, revived Reagan Democrat ‘deplorables’

Special to WorldTribune.com By Stephen Moore I stirred up some controversy last week when I told a conference of several dozen House Republicans that the GOP is now officially a Trump-working-class party. For better or worse, I said at the gathering inside the Capitol dome, the baton has now officially been passed from the Reagan […]
