Infrastructure Investment: A State, Local, and Private Responsibility Despite huge and ongoing budget deficits, some policymakers are proposing to increase federal spending on infrastructure. President Obama on Thursday unveiled a new federal infrastructure initiative, and he has been campaigning for Congress to pass a long-term highway bill. The president and other leaders believe that more federal spending on roads, rail, and other assets will boost growth and create jobs. Cato scholar Chris Edwards, however, argues for devolving infrastructure activities to the states and the private sector.

The Next “Crisis”: The Debt Ceiling Sometime in the next 30 to 60 days the federal government will reach the legal limit on its ability to borrow, setting up the next potential budget crisis in Washington.  Unfortunately, says Cato scholar Michael D. Tanner, much of what we are being told about the debt limit and the upcoming fight is simply untrue. Tanner argues that while failing to raise the debt limit would not be a good thing, even worse would be failing to take meaningful action to reduce the debt, federal spending, and the growth of government.

Tanner "Do the American People Agree with Obama?," by David Boaz "Boehner's Bogus Debt Ceiling Line in the Sand," by Tad DeHaven "Should U.S. Fiscal Policy Address Slow Growth or the Debt?

China, America, and the Pivot to Asia Despite the United States’ focus on the Middle East and the Islamic world for the past decade, the most important international political developments in the coming years are likely to happen in Asia. The main factor driving Washington’s interest in the region is the growing economic and military power of the People’s Republic of China. In a new study, Cato scholar Justin Logan examines the U.S. foreign policy implications of China’s growing power and influence. "China, America, and the Pivot to Asia," by Justin Logan [...]

The index is based on the Fraser Institute's Economic Freedom of the World report. This year's survey also features chapters on the state of Punjab's long decline and India's urgent need for reform in agriculture and the labor market.

Why the Hagel Nomination Matters President Obama on Monday nominated former GOP Sen. Chuck Hagel as the next Secretary of Defense, replacing the retiring Leon Panetta. Neoconservatives are in an uproar over the selection. Cato scholar Justin Logan suggests that the pending battle over Hagel's nomination could be a "perestroika moment" in the American foreign and defense policy debate. "If Hagel survives this process," argues Logan, "it will show that you can stare down the neocons and live to tell the tale." "Why Americans Should Care about the Hagel Nomination," by Justin Logan "Hagel’s a Good Fight," by Benjamin H. Friedman "Obama Needs Hagel in Pentagon," by Doug Bandow "The Neocons’ Fight over Chuck Hagel Moves to Act Two," by Christopher A. Preble [...]
