Foreign Intervention Losing Favor with Americans

DECEMBER 04, 2009 by EXECUTIVE ALERT

“At the very moment President Obama is looking to thrust the United States ever more into global affairs, the American public is turning more isolationist and unilateralist than it has at any time in decades, a survey released yesterday said. The Pew Research Center poll found that a plurality of Americans – 49 percent – think the United States should ‘mind its own business internationally’ and leave it to other countries to fend for themselves.” (Philadelphia Inquirer, Friday)

“When the others are all over ears in trouble, who would not be isolated in freedom from care?” –William Graham Sumner

CURRENT ISSUE

July/August 2014

The United States' corporate tax burden is the highest in the world, but innovators will always find a way to duck away from Uncle Sam's reach. Doug Bandow explains how those with the means are renouncing their citizenship in increasing numbers, while J. Dayne Girard describes the innovative use of freeports to shield wealth from the myriad taxes and duties imposed on it as it moves around the world. Of course the politicians brand all of these people unpatriotic, hoping you won't think too hard about the difference between the usual crony-capitalist suspects and the global creative elite that have done so much to improve our lives. In a special tech section, Joseph Diedrich, Thomas Bogle, and Matthew McCaffrey look at various ways these innovators add value to our lives--even in ways they probably never expected.
