This Week's Think Tank

1) Health economists Alan Garber and Jonathan Skinner wonder whether American health care is uniquely inefficient.

2) This won't shock anyone who was alive in the 1990s, but a review of the literature shows that there's little evidence that higher marginal tax rates harm growth.

3) What will health-care reform mean for small businesses and their employees?

4) A report out of Harvard suggests that carbon capture technology is going to be very, very expensive.

5) Brookings has some suggestions for how the stimulus money could be used to make America more metro.

Re carbon capture: The paper notes that the choice of base year can have a 50% effect on the estimated cost, and it also predicts costs falling by 65% by 2030.

Not sure how these costs compare with the costs of other proposed AGW reduction methods.
