National Post gets it right!



It has been brought to my attention that Harvard professor of economics Gregory Mankiw, the author of the textbook used in my Microeconomics course, has started the Pigou Club. The purpose of this club : to get the American government to raise Pigouvian taxes, or what we common people usually call green or social taxes. Well, that was bound to happen.

The best thing about the Pigou Club, however, is that it gave rise to an opposing movement, the Nopigou Club. Championned by Financial Post (now part of the National Post) editor, Terence Corcoran, "the club's purpose is to counter the ideas of the Pigou Club, an informal assembly of economists and pundits who support the idea of raising gasoline taxes."

From their website :

Arthur C. Pigou was an early 20th-century British economist, one of the fathers of welfare economics. He believed governments can shape policy for the better by raising taxes on bad things and subsidizing good ones. In the view of the Nopigou Club, the Pigou approach is just another form of central planning dressed up in free market terminology.

Go take a look at their websit or blog, and see what great things Canadians (sometimes) have to say.

Generic Viagra (sildenafil citrate; brand names include: Aphrodil / Edegra / Erasmo / Penegra / Revatio / Supra / Zwagra) is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction regardless of the cause or duration of the problem or the age of the patient.
Sildenafil Citrate is the active ingredient used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men. It can help men who have erectile dysfunction get and sustain an erection when they are sexually excited.
Generic Viagra is manufactured in accordance with World Health Organization standards and guidelines (WHO-GMP). Also you can find on our sites.
Generic Viagra is made with thorough reverse engineering for the sildenafil citrate molecule - a totally different process of making sildenafil and its reaction. That is why it takes effect in 15 minutes compared to other drugs which take 30-40 minutes to take effect.

Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
