True or false: State intervention tends to enable big business at citizens expense

Just curious what the general feel across the board on this particular question is.


The real phrasing of the question is as follows (character space constraints):

True or False:
State intervention tends to enable big buisiness at the expense of labor and consumers.

Innovate more or something.

This is for the common good. It isn't dooming any chain to bankruptcy and if it is then that chain probably needed to be scaled back in location count in the first place.

What common good? Where was the people's cry to the government to make this happen - to save us from the wretched food chains who will only post their nutritional information online? Where was this cry?

You have a wild imagination about what constitutes as "common good."

There wasn't any such cry. I wasn't crying for it. I can appreciate it being there.

An interview with the guy who owns the Davanni pizzeria chain, that was mentioned in an post 76, talking about the impact of the new federal mandates on his industry:

I could maybe list a couple of "small governments" where "big business" DID run roughshod, but you would just claim they weren't really small because the fact that "big business" ran things "proves" they were actually "big governments."

That's where the loading comes in.
Somalia...

Stateless in Somalia, and Loving It!


Look at that flourishing market!


Even the CIA factbook admits:

Quote:
"Despite the seeming anarchy, Somalia's service sector has managed to survive and grow. Telecommunication firms provide wireless services in most major cities and offer the lowest international call rates on the continent. In the absence of a formal banking sector, money exchange services have sprouted throughout the country, handling between $500 million and $1 billion in remittances annually. Mogadishu's main market offers a variety of goods from food to the newest electronic gadgets. Hotels continue to operate, and militias provide security."
Quote:
The second sentence, however, depicts Somalia as a lawless country in disorder. As for disorder, Van Notten quotes authorities to the effect that Somalia's telecommunications are the best in Africa, its herding economy is stronger than that of either of its neighbors, Kenya or Ethiopia, and that since the demise of the central government, the Somali shilling has become far more stable in world currency markets, while exports have quintupled.

As for Somalia being lawless, Van Notten, a Dutch lawyer who married into the Samaron Clan and lived the last dozen years of his life with them, specifically challenges that portrayal. He explains that Somalia is a country based on customary law. The traditional Somali system of law and politics, he contends, is capable of maintaining a peaceful society and guiding the Somalis to prosperity. Moreover, efforts to re-establish a central government or impose democracy on the people are incompatible with the customary law.



The killing and shooting we hear about on our news is really due to weak-to-invisible transitional government in Mogadishu ( which they like and do well under) will become a real government with actual power.
