La vape a réussi d’accomplir ce que l’Etat ne peut pas

Une bonne information et une réglementation équilibrée sont plus efficaces que l’interdiction pure et simple : du bon sens, et pourtant… Les collégiens, les lycéens et les étudiants ont augmenté leur consommation de cigarettes électroniques, malgré les préoccupations croissantes.

Iran escalation: Europe’s rightful restraint

They remember well the failures of the Iraq war and aren’t cowed by Mike Pompeo’s disapproval. Following the killing of Qasem Soleimani by American forces in Iraq, Washington and Tehran have spent days saber-rattling. Recent explosions in front of the U.S. embassy in Baghdad have intensified hostilities—President Trump is making direct threats against Iran on […]

Tesla’s Fatal Strategy

On October 21, 2019, President Trump praised ongoing trade negotiations between the United States and China. Still, as negotiators work towards a deal that would alleviate tensions and reduce tariffs amongst the countries, the trade war persists. And that fact could spell disaster for Elon Musk’s Tesla — a company banking hard on generous financial assistance from […]

Trump Lays Foundation for Deregulation — Now He Should Cement It

How do you modernize the United States, make it open to innovation, free its entrepreneurs, and show that it is open for business? For decades, conservatives have made the case for deregulation as a way to relieve burdensome D.C. regulations.

Greta Thunberg deserves mockery

At this point, there’s hardly any need to repost the video of Greta Thunberg speaking at a UN press conference earlier this week, so widely has the footage been spread on social media.

Prior to the midterm elections, the Republican-held presidency, Senate, and House barely moved an inch on […]

Trump’s worst export is his trade policy

The latest news in Donald Trump’s multi-front trade war is focused on China, in the wake of the president’s decision (over the objections of most of his advisers) to impose a fresh round of tariffs on Chinese goods and China’s unsurprising threats of retaliation. As troubling as those developments are, we shouldn’t move too quickly past his other […]

The EU’s carbons taxes are protectionism à la Trump

The new president of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, is assembling her cabinet, which will be presented and subjected to hearings by the European Parliament in autumn.
