Economics questions are very often decided on emotion, not facts or logic. Nowhere is this truer than on the question of a government-mandated minimum wage. In a recent letter, Mr. Livdahl cites the rising prices of goods and services as a call to raise the mandated minimum wage. He believes this will make it easier for people to get through trade school or college. If your thinking does not extend beyond the end of a bumper sticker slogan, you might tend to agree. After all, it feels so good to envision the benefits of a government-mandated minimum wage. Unfortunately, on this question, emotion and economic reality clash head-on.
WAR! Here we go again! We hear the call to attack and destroy ISIS from all arenas: from Tom Patterson (“Time for US to get ‘crazy’ and fight to win in Middle East,” East Valley Tribune, Aug. 24), from Joe Klein (“An Evil That Must Be Stopped,” Time Magazine, Aug. 25), and from many politicians, government advisers and so-called military experts. And this after just having briefly commemorated the 100th anniversary of the beginning of World War I, “The Great War,” the “War To End All Wars.” As we lackadaisically prepare ourselves to slay our newest foe, ISIS, it might be worthwhile to glance at an excerpt from Ernst Glaeser’s renowned best-seller from 1928, “Jahrgang 1902” (“Birth Year 1902”).

Past generations of Americans defied the odds to achieve the right to participate in the political process — overcoming menacing threats of violence, arrest, and coercion, all to earn the right to vote. As United States citizens, we pride ourselves on living in a country that has become the standard-bearer of democratic values worldwide. But a troubling pattern has taken hold, threatening this distinction for generations to come.

Doug Ducey and Christine Jones are occupied in convincing Arizona that “immigration” is the only issue facing our Grand Canyon State. Both candidates desire to let President Obama know their personal feelings, and one (Christine Jones) thinks she can simply send the president of the United States an invoice to pay for a fence and more border patrol agents. The endorsement of Joe Arpaio ranting for Doug Ducey — a son of a police officer with no political background — indicates that the “Go Daddy Mama” and the “ice cream man” should not lead our state. On the other side of the fence, stands tall, a quiet gentleman, Scott Smith, who was Mesa’s long-term mayor; a leader served with excellence. This is what he did for Mesa as mayor: improved and revitalized Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport; in our worse economic recession, gathered the Chicago Cubs to remain in Mesa — in as much constructed a new baseball stadium; increased funding for Mesa’s metro rail system, linking to other transfer points for the East Valley; and negotiated with Apple to take over a new facility employing hundreds of new jobs. Smith was elected by President Obama to chair as president of the Conference for Mayors. Scott Smith is a proven leader; Arizonans can rest at ease while Smith governs our state. I moved into Mesa in 2008 — the worst time in our economy. Since I am able to see the improvements in Mesa, that leads me to believe a man such as Scott Smith will satisfy every requirement as Arizona’s next governor.
The Arizona Technology Council took its donation back from Gov. Jan Brewer's political action committee after she used its cash to try to defeat a legislative candidate it supports.
The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) rates the relative quality of the private plans that are offered to Medicare beneficiaries through the Medicare Advantage program. CMS rates Medicare Advantage plans on a one- to five-star scale, the highest quality being five stars. This star rating provides an overall measure of the plan’s quality and is an indication of the quality of care, access to care, responsiveness, and beneficiary satisfaction provided by the Medicare Advantage plan. This means that the higher the star rating a plan receives, the more likely you are to receive the care you need, when and where you need it - and most of all, you are more likely to be satisfied with your plan.
