National Debt Ceiling Fight: Does It Matter?

In this newsletter, I discuss the upcoming special session in Texas, the latest economic growth and jobs created in Texas, the national debt ceiling fight, budget cuts needed, and more!

Hello Friend!

There’s much to be thankful for as we close another prosperous week and look forward to more flourishing in the upcoming one. I hope that part of your weekly enjoyment comes from reading this newsletter. Please send any improvements and subscribe if you haven’t already and share this newsletter with others. My motto: Free-market capitalism best lets people prosper!

I’ve had a busy week preparing for the recently announced special session in Texas that will start July 8. The specific issues on the Governor’s call have not been released yet, but I’m hopeful that property tax cuts and other important items to our lives and livelihoods will be on the call. I discuss this and more below. There hasn’t been much downtime since the end of the regular session on May 31 as we at TPPF prepare our sound research and new ideas for bold strategies to help Texans prosper.

Another thing that’s been keeping me busy is presenting to those new to TPPF this summer what is economics and how institutions matter. You can view my syllabus “Economics—Let People Prosper” here. This is one of my favorite things to do each semester as part of our Philosophy of Freedom course, which I present along with a few of my other colleagues.

Here are other ways that we can stay connected.

Now let’s get to the economic and fiscal situations in Texas and D.C.
