State of New Mexico Archives: on Free Trade

David Clements: Consumers should pick winners and losers, not government

Competition is central to a free market. Consumers, rather than the government, should be tasked with picking winners and losers. Government should facilitate an enhanced economic environment by making the tax code simple and regulations predictable. Hard work should be rewarded. That means no more bailouts or special favors for companies and industries with powerful D.C. lobbies.
