Mike Hicks
When the economy is getting much better or much worse, the trend is obvious even if there are occasional mixed signals. When the economy changes little, almost every piece of new data can be confusing.

Skarbeck: Risk measure stokes debate over merits of index funds

September 6, 2014
Ken Skarbeck
While the goal of many investors is to “beat the market,” it is a well-known fact that most investors (including professionals), underperform the market over the long run. Hence, the argument to buy index funds. Investors who invest in index funds accept the aggregate ups and downs (volatility) of the broad stock market.

While it might sound like a naughty "Blazing Saddles" villain, Salty Cowboy is actually a worthy addition to the town's dining lineup.

Sticking it to commutersRestricted Content

September 6, 2014
I found [Sheila Kennedy’s Aug. 11 column] to be incredibly compelling. For years, I worked in Louisville, Ky., while living in Indiana, and for each of those years I was required to pay into a sinking fund (often referred to by commuters as a stinking fund).

DEBOY: Let’s fix our leaky water pipesRestricted Content

August 30, 2014
Alan DeBoy / Special to IBJ
As challenging as developing and preserving water supplies for the next 50 years might be, as identified recently in a water resources study by the Indiana Chamber of Commerce, another significant challenge looms just as large for most water utilities.

RACE: Rest areas, welcome centers send negative message

August 30, 2014
Bruce Race / Special to IBJ
Indiana has branded itself as the Crossroads of America. We take pride in being an automotive and industrial state. You’d think we’d embrace the idea of rest stops that welcome visitors and celebrate the car culture.

Hoosier football thrives away from the spotlight. Paying visits to Franklin College, University of Indianapolis, and Wabash College.

Hicks: Liberalism on campus is mostly irrelevantRestricted Content

August 30, 2014
Mike Hicks
That academia is a creature of the left is hardly in question. Voting patterns and political contributions of professors are widely studied, and astonishingly leftist. Diversity efforts seek to build a cadre of people who look different but think exactly alike. Still, I wonder how much it really matters.

It seems like every month, a new "pick-your-own-ingredients-and-move-down-the-line" eatery is opening, putting the pressure on diners rather than a chef to get the combination just right.

Study Indianapolis criminal justice centerRestricted Content

August 30, 2014
The IBJ is correct [Aug. 18 editorial]. There are too many unanswered questions about the proposed half-billion-dollar criminal justice center and the little-tested public/private partnership (P3) contracting model under which a private consortium would design, build, finance, maintain and operate the facility in return for predetermined annual payments.

KENNEDY: Daniels diminishing higher learningRestricted Content

The current political focus on what we used to call “vocational education” not only minimizes the value of a liberal education, it ignores the reality of today’s job market.

Hicks: Who actually pays the taxes? Good questionRestricted Content

August 23, 2014
Mike Hicks
Among the most misunderstood concepts in public policy is the burden of taxes. One unfortunate result is a good bit of bitterness and calumny over who pays their fair share.

  5. Problem: most of the people responding to this article don't know about this service AT ALL! Why? Lack of awareness. This isn't IndyGo. This is CIRTA: might as well be the mattress company because they are asleep at the wheel - something like 3 directors over the last year? Playing with federal grant money is great! This "region" wants commuter rail service, has spent MILLIONS on Transportation studies yet can't even support a commuter bus line? This is largely for suburban riders to get to downtown - not for "service people to work in our hotels and restaurants" ! Get your head out of your backside!! These are professionals, students etc. that don't want to fight traffic, save some money on parking, gas, stress.... if CIRTA would put their federal money into widely promoting the sevive to Greenwood, Fishers & Carmel instead of finding directors and studies - this would be a successful service. Our family uses(d) it daily for the last several years - but the recent uncertainty & now unreliability due to cuts from Carmel has been a problem. Now, costs us an additional $350/month for gas & parking ( $4200/year) plus vehicle wear, service, environmental impact ... YES - this REGION needs this this type of service in order to keep growing and getting the people it needs to fill skilled positions in downtown Indianapolis. Think outside of your own car !!!
