  • Free Trade Needs Louder Cheerleaders

    July 10, 2019
    There’s a new RealClear Opinion Research poll out, and it shows a disappointing lack of support for free markets and trade. RealClear found that only half of registered voters thought global trade had been a net positive for the U.S. over the past ten years. This is a significant decline in support, down from what had been a bipartisan consensus for decades.
  • VIDEO: Learning the Lessons of Tariffs and Trade

    July 3, 2019
    Our friends at the Adam Smith Society—the Manhattan Institute’s professional association for business students—have hosted some excellent events and presentations over the past few years, including at their 2018 annual meeting. At that event The Wall Street Journal’s Mary Anastasia O'Grady interviewed Prof. Douglas Irwin about his 2017 book "Clashing over Commerce: A History of U.S. Trade Policy." The event took place in April of last year, but their conversation is still very much relevant to trade debate going on today.

    At the Competitive Enterprise Institute this week we’re still reflecting on the success of last Thursday’s 35th anniversary dinner and gala, and thanking our friends and sponsors for making the night so wonderful. On Friday, I blogged the annual dinner movie, a 10-minute short inspired by “Game of Thrones” and our own experiences working in the imperial city of Washington, D.C. Today, I'm pleased to bring you another short film, this one on the history of CEI.

    Last night was the Competitive Enterprise Institute’s 35th anniversary dinner and gala here in Washington, D.C., and a crowd of several hundred friends and supporters made the evening very special. The crowd was especially moved by tributes from the stage to founder Fred Smith by current CEI President Kent Lassman and longtime friend-of-the-Institute Rebecca Dunn.
  • For Better Policy, Congress Should Stop Punting to Executive Agencies

    June 19, 2019
    Yesterday the Federalist Society’s Regulatory Transparency Project and Article I Initiative hosted a fascinating panel discussion here in Washington, D.C. about the dynamic relationship between Congress and federal regulatory agencies. Panelists assembled in the National Press Club to discuss a new law review article by Prof. Donald Kochan of Chapman University titled “Strategic Institutional Positioning: How We Have Come to Generate Environmental Law Without Congress.”
