The EU

Google says the EU requires a notice of cookie use (by Google) and says they have posted a notice. I don't see it. If cookies bother you, go elsewhere. If the EU bothers you, emigrate. If you live outside the EU, don't go there.

FDA Form of Corporatism

For John, BLUFBureaucrats slow the economy, mostly.  Nothing to see here; just move along.

The blogosphere is a big Evers to Tinker to Chance machine.  This started with ¡No Pasaran!, echoing Mickey Kaus on the blog InstaPundit.
MICKEY KAUS: “The Obama Administration continues to blaze new paths to corporatism (the cozy alliance of government with a few big businesses in each industry to the exclusion of smaller players).” All in the name of helping the little guy, of course. But wait, there’s a downside:
Obama’s second, FDA-style form of corporatism might ironically pose a serious threat to the Washington economy. After all, if all regulations are hashed out informally around a table between regulators, a few oligopolists and industry trade associations**-well, will we need so many lawyers to litigate rules in formal, quasi-judicial agency proceedings, and then to sue to get them overturned in court? Covington & Burling could lay off half its partners.
¡No Pasarán!
Actually, fewer lobbyists could be an upside.

This is heading toward a form of mercantilism and we should all read The Other Path, by Hernando De Soto.
