Carla Howell on Technology

Libertarian Challenger Governor (MA); 2000 Challenger for Senate


Anti-trust case on Microsoft will not work

Q: In terms of some of the other issues that the government has been getting involved in, say the Microsoft case, could you explain your position on that?

A: The Microsoft antitrust case is not going to work. It could be outright disastrous for high-tech in America. And, it will create all kinds of new problems, while diverting resources that should be concerned with true crime, not with successful big business.

No ATM fee ban-leave the marketplace alone

Q: If an ATM fee ban came up in the Senate, would you support it and if not why?

A: No. Leave the marketplace alone. This is an absurd idea, that telling a business not to charge for a particular service is going to help anything. Itís only going to displace cost. Itís going to make things worse and create new problems, by imposing government regulation. Itís interfering with the free market in an area where the federal government has absolutely no business.
