Link Harvest: NN Econ FUD, Brits on "3 Strikes"

Claims that Net Neutrality is a "job killer."
http://www.digitalsociety.org/2010/02/what-would-net-neutrality-mean-for-u-s-jobs/

I shall get around to longer debunking with links. The short version is that companies are winding down their capital investment without any regulation for the simple reason that they don't think they need to invest more. The problem is that fantasy economics ("all regulation cost money and is bad for jobs") long ago displaced real economics (companies invest where investment appears likely to yield profit).

Meanwhile, across the pond, the Select Committee on Human Rights in Parliament has looked at the proposed "3 strikes" law and does not like what it sees.
