We need somebody who can explain free enterprise is plain language. We don’t have a person like that right now.
Milton Friedman’s classic bit about the pencil:
Contrast that with the rhetoric of Obama and Elizabeth Warren:
We see two different ways of looking at collective action problems, one voluntary, the other forced by the power of the state. Yes, there are things in our society which are supported by tax dollars. But in many cases these institutions are crumbling before our eyes, in some cases bankrupting municipalities. And in any event, the type of increasing nationally-directed redistribution according to political favor have little to do with local police, firefighters, or roads.
On the other hand, there’s a market-oriented approach that actually solves quite a few problems without, as Friedman would have put it, a Commissar to direct them.
Nobody builds a business by themselves, but then again, nobody so much as makes a pencil by themselves either.
