    Government meddling in the free market system, never turns out well. They are fundamentally incapable of picking winners because their motivation isn’t to make a profit, but political and rent seeking (corruption).

      When I was a kid I believed in monsters under the bed. Right wingers still believe in myths like the ‘free market’. A reflection of fundamentalism in religion, I guess. Funny how their view of economics parallels their view of religion

      The fact is there is no such thing as a ‘free market’. It’s a theoretical construct that exists only in the mind like a perfect gas. The most unrestricted market in US history was in the 19th century, with little govt interference. It was an age, as Adam Smith predicted, of businessmen conspiring against the public iinterest

      Funny how many right wingers have read Ayn Rand and other myths. Few have read Adam Smith and the need for a regulated market.
