Spending Cuts: Fake or Real?

by Sven R. Larson, Ph.D.

Sensible people want smaller government. The question is how to cut it; contrary to what is often suggested, not all spending cuts are the same. Some cuts are aimed to actually reduce the size of government and ease the burden on the private sector; other cuts, however, are done to preserve government at the very expense of the private sector.

No Alternative When Government Copts Out

by Sven R. Larson, Ph.D.

Zandra is a Swedish woman with a serious disability. To live a reasonably normal life, given her circumstances, she received help from five personal assistants around the clock. The assistants were paid for by the Swedish government’s Income Security Agency, through its disability program.

Wyoming The Tax Hike State, Part 1

Guest Writer – Sven Larson

TheWyomingProsperityProject.com

Between the legislature, Governor Mead, the Wyoming Association of Municipalities and assorted local tax efforts, we as a state could easily be facing half a billion dollars in higher taxes.

Half a billion dollars. 

This number represents a worst-case scenario, and until recently I thought of it as just that - an unlikely outer-rim possibility. However, as we move closer to the 2018 legislative session, this worst-case scenario looks increasingly likely.

An Open Letter to the Revenue Committee

 by Sven R Larson

Chairman Peterson; Chairman Madden; Members of the Joint Revenue Committee of the Wyoming Legislature,

Your agenda for the meeting in Thermopolis on August 2-3 is full of proposals to raise taxes and fees on the Wyoming economy. While I don't think anyone expects them all to pass even through your committee, the rich roster of ideas is in itself a source of great concern.
