The Big Business Profitability of the Nonprofit College Board

Headquartered in New York City and Reston, Virginia, with six regional and two international offices, the College Board is a nonprofit association of more than 6,000 educational institutions. Its goal is to promote excellence and equity in education. The Board was founded in 1900 by 12 prestigious universities to create a standardized test to admit students based on merit. According to its mission statement, the College Board prepares students for a "successful transition to college through programs and services in college readiness and college success — including the SAT and the Advanced Placement Program," writes NCPA Contributing Fellow Carole Hornsby Haynes...

Four Reasons to Abolish the Social Security Benefits Tax

The Social Security benefits tax is perhaps the most bizarre tax on the books. In particular, it penalizes moderate-income seniors who wish to supplement their Social Security benefits, writes NCPA Senior Fellow Pam Villarreal...

EpiPen: A Case Study of Government Harm

Much has been written about the dramatic price hikes for EpiPens, which inject a drug that counters severe allergic reactions (anaphylactic shock). The federal government changed its guidelines such that the EpiPens have to be sold in packages of two (while customers might prefer just one, or at least an odd number). Also, the federal government gave public-emergency grants to states on condition they stockpile EpiPens. Further, the Food and Drug Administration has hindered other manufacturers' ability to compete, writes NCPA Senior Fellow John R. Graham...

Hillary's Economic Plan Will Cost Americans Jobs and Income

Clinton's Tax Plan Won't Just Hurt High Income Earners

Hillary's Tax Plan Will Cost Everybody, Not Just the Rich

Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has proposed a number of changes to the income tax code, targeted mainly at high-income earners. The tax changes would have little impact on 90 percent of the population in terms of tax liability. However, households in the top ten percent of the income distribution, who currently pay 53 percent of all federal taxes, would pay 80 percent of the additional tax collected, according to an NCPA analysis...

How New Cold World Order Threatens Humanity

The greater concentration of power in the hands of those cold to human suffering may bring the world to a humanitarian tipping point, writes NCPA Senior Fellow David Grantham...

The Economic Effects of the Clinton Tax Proposal

Compared with other presidential election year cycles, the 2016 campaign takes place in a period of perplexingly slow economic growth. Secretary Hillary Clinton's tax proposal, the center of her campaign's fiscal policy, stresses fairness. To reach "broadly shared prosperity," in this slow-growth environment, the Clinton tax proposals seek to promote growth and equity by shifting the tax burden to high-income taxpayers, writes NCPA Senior Fellow and Beacon Hill Institute Executive Director David Tuerck...

Hillary Clinton's Tax Plan under the NCPA's Model of the U.S. Economy
