The Best News of 2015

What was the best news of the year? That’s a difficult question to answer if you believe in small government and you work in Washington. We certainly didn’t get the things on my Christmas list, like genuine entitlement reform and fundamental tax reform. Santa also forget to give me much-needed spending caps, like they have […]

Reflections from an unusual year

A year ago I don’t remember what I was doing. That is a function of the fact I was so ill I don’t remember anything at all; I’m glad I don’t, as what little comes to me from time to time isn’t worth remembering. The only thing that sticks is a memory of the kindness […]

http://www.westcovinalimoservices.com/uploads/3/2/2/1/32210687/952963_orig.jpg

Welcome to the Watcher’s Council, a blogging group consisting of some of the most incisive blogs in the ‘sphere, and the longest running group of its kind in existence. Every week, the members nominate two posts each, one written by themselves and one written by someone from outside the group for consideration by the whole Council.Then we vote on the best two posts, with the results appearing on Friday morning.

Council News:


The results from this year’s 2015 Fabulous 50 Blog Awards
are in and the Council scored big! Teresa Monroe-Hamilton’s The Noisy Room, Fausta’s Blog, VA Right, Sara Noble’s The Independent Sentinel and Bookworm Room all received individual awards and rave write ups, and the Council as a whole received a group award as best blogging group..

This week, The Pirate’s Cove, Right Reason, The People’s Cube and Seraphic Secret earned honorable mention status with some great articles.

You can, too! Want to see your work appear on the Watcher’s Council homepage in our weekly contest listing? Didn’t get nominated by a Council member? No worries.

To bring something to my attention, simply head over to Joshuapundit and post the title and a link to the piece you want considered along with an e-mail address (mandatory, but of course it won’t be published) in the comments section no later than Monday 6PM PST in order to be considered for our honorable mention category. Then return the favor by creating a post on your site linking to the Watcher’s Council contest for the week when it comes out on Wednesday morning.

Simple, no?

It’s a great way of exposing your best work to Watcher’s Council readers and Council members while grabbing the increased traffic and notoriety. And how good is that, eh?

So, let’s see what we have for you this week….

The Regulatory State Grew to Record Levels in 2015, and the Red-Tape Burden Will Get even Worse in 2016

For those of us worried (with good reason!) about excessive regulation and red tape, 2015 was not a good year. As you can see from the headline of this story in the Washington Examiner, federal bureaucrats were very busy imposing new mandates and restrictions on the economy. Indeed, President Obama now has the cumulative record […]

On the Financial Crisis of 2008: Why Business Ethics Failed

I submit that the academic field of business ethics failed in not being able to anticipate the fraud and exploited conflicts of interest that precipitated the financial crisis of 2008. That is to say, business-ethics scholars, including myself, fa…

Male and female he made them?

More Flawed Partisan Analysis from Paul Krugman

When I get my daily email from the editorial page of the New York Times, I scroll through to see whether there’s anything on economic issues I should read.
