Letitia James, New York's attorney general, recently told a rally supporting Roe v. Wade that when she got her abortion, "I walked proudly into Planned Parenthood." How did we descend to the point where an abortion is, for some, what? An achievement? A statement? Somehow an occasion for pride?

A colleague at the Indiana Policy Review Foundation, Professor Richard McGowan, recently wrote a column bemoaning the lack of required philosophy courses in today’s college curricula. Perhaps lamenting is a better verb due to its classical connotation.

Eight years old with a flour sack cape tied all around his neck. He climbed up on the garage figurin’ what the heck. He screwed his courage up so tight, the whole thing came unwound. He got a runnin’ start and bless his heart. He headed for the ground. He’s one of those who knows that life i…

In the wake of a leaked draft Supreme Court opinion which, if it represents a final vote, would overturn Roe v. Wade, pro-choice advocates are marshaling their best – and worst – arguments against removing that ruling’s protections for abortion.

For most of my adult life, I’ve described myself as a free market economist. But, I should explain just what that means, and how it influences what I research and write about. The best way to start this essay is to observe that nearly all economic research examines the points at which market…

To conserve the reverence it needs and deserves, the Constitution should be amended rarely and reluctantly. There is, however, an amendment that would instantly improve the legislative and executive branches: “No senator or former senator shall be eligible to be president.”

Despite what you might have learned in high school civics, the Supreme Court really only has one role in our system of government – to uphold Roe v. Wade.

The leaked first draft opinion of the Supreme Court’s majority view to overturn Roe v. Wade may or may not be the justices’ final decision.

On May 2, Politico hit America with a bombshell scoop: A leaked Supreme Court draft opinion overturning the last 50 years of federal jurisprudence on abortion, discarding Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood v. Casey, and returning the matter to the states.

I’m so old that I remember when the Establishment set the rules and rebels tried to break them. Now, we seem to be embarked on a great experiment in which the former rebels are in charge and determined to get rid of all the rules.

A year after being named Time magazine’s person of the year, Elon Musk is attempting to acquire Twitter.

The most recent inflation data pointed to continued high prices, despite an announcement by the Federal Reserve of significant efforts to end inflation this year. At the same time, more than one economist suggested that we face higher recession risks this year. Both of these developments are…

Election Day is coming up – on Tuesday, May 3 – and school referendums will be on the ballot in nine school districts. It’s best if voters investigate the referendum issues in advance, so they know whether to vote yes or no. A voter might compare the benefits and costs of the referendum tax …

With the advent of war comes great prose. Just as May 1940 found Prime Minister Winston Churchill rallying his nation at the beginning of the blitz in the Battle of Britain, we have witnessed great oratory from Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky.

Someone at the gym last week asked me what I thought about Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, and I said, “I’m firmly on the side of those against World War III.”

On April 6, hundreds of protesters convened outside the Walt Disney Company’s headquarters in Burbank, Calif. Their message: Boycott Disney.

Anyone who has taken a swig from the flask of recent history knew President Joe Biden was going to decree another extension of the pause on federal student loan payments. While celebrating the economy’s health – 3.6% unemployment, 2% unemployment for college graduates – he has announced a si…

Joe Biden is engaged in the most extensive test of whether an American president can survive elevated levels of inflation since Jimmy Carter, and it’s not going well.

In the current political context, I am more traditional than progressive, although with a few liberal skeletons in my conservative closet.

Late last year, Indiana’s Senate pro tempore and speaker of the House wrote an open letter to leaders of the healthcare industry, urging them to craft a plan to reduce costs. This was a particularly smart, pragmatic and principled approach by Senator Bray and Representative Huston to seek co…

Even in what we hope will be the waning days of the pandemic, organizations like America’s Frontline Doctors are still out there, spreading lies while pretending to stand up for the truth.

If you’re a Democrat, do you think you should pay for a bunch of Republicans to decide who they want to run for public office? Or, if you’re a Republican, should you have to dig into your pocket to help Democrats pick their candidates? And if you’re an independent, there are probably many go…
