White House Calls in the Deans — China Growth Slows — Bloomberg Says He’s Going to Heaven

COURT MOVES AGAINST PART OF DODD-FRANK — CEI’s John Berlau: “[The recent] ruling of the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals that Dodd-Frank’s ‘conflict minerals’ disclosure mandate violates the First Amendment is the first time ever a court has ruled that a provision of Dodd-Frank violates the Constitution … And it couldn’t happen to a more misguided and destructive provision of the law! As my Competitive Enterprise Institute colleague Hans Bader and I have written in blog posts, articles, and regulatory comments, the conflict disclosure mandate creates a compliance nightmare, hurts American miners and manufacturers, and does the greatest harm to those it was intended to help — the struggling worker in and nearby the Democratic Republic of Congo.” http://bit.ly/1eO54N
