COMMENTARY BY JOHN STOSSEL

  • Market Magic By John Stossel

    People have long lists of things they think the market can't possibly do -- from building subways to fighting wars. Sometimes, the market does them anyway.

    War, for example. Even conservatives, who often praise markets, assume that only government can fight terrorists. Tell that to Matthew VanDyke.

  • Rank the Candidates By John Stossel

    My list of best to worst possible presidents:

  • Breaking the Rules By John Stossel

    Humans need rules. Rules make life more predictable. But when the rules multiply, the world needs some rule-breakers.

  • Immigration Is Great By John Stossel

    Yikes, you really hate me!    

    Many of you, anyway, based on Twitter and Facebook comments posted after I argued immigration with Ann Coulter on my TV show.    

  • Gun Lies By John Stossel

    My town, New York City, enforces rigid gun laws. Police refused to assign me a gun permit. The law doesn't even let me hold a fake gun on TV to demonstrate something.

    But New York politicians are so eager to vilify gun ownership that they granted an exception to the anti-gun group States United to Prevent Gun Violence. New York allowed States United to set up a fake gun store, where cameras filmed potential gun customers being spoofed by an actor pretending to be a gun-seller.

  • Governed by Zealots By John Stossel

    The government's environmental rules defeat even environmentalists.    

  • The War on Uber by John Stossel

    Hillary Clinton gave a speech warning that the new "sharing economy" of businesses such as the ride-hailing company Uber is "raising hard questions about workplace protections."

  • Progress by John Stossel

    Obamacare! The War on Drugs! A War on Poverty! Prohibition! The idea that government will bring social progress isn't new.

  • Wealth Gap By John Stossel

    Nearly 10,000 people turned out to hear Bernie Sanders in Wisconsin. Why? Apparently, many Democrats want socialism.

    Sanders is the Vermont senator who is running for the Democratic Party's presidential nomination.

  • Heroes, Villains by John Stossel

    Have you seen the new Jurassic Park movie, "Jurassic World?"
