Wayne's Free Market Is Mythical

The walking, talking embodiment of the mythical free market in Idaho today is Wayne Hoffman, executive director of the Idaho Freedom Foundation. He called a few weeks ago and asked if we could get together and get acquainted while he was in the north country on other business. No harm in getting acquainted I thought, though for Wayne, there was some “harm” encountered. It seems the speeding ticket he received was because he was running late for our get together at an Irish Pub on Lake Drive in Coeur d’Alene. Though we are polar opposite on many things, there are some issues where we have commonality – government over-reaching and the public’s loss of trust in government “honesty” at all levels, for example. It was a pleasant enough discussion but when he used the phrase “free market” as in “we have to return to a true free market” I took strong exception/Chris Carlson, The Carlson Report. More here.

DFO: Make sure you read this one to the end. Chris saves some good insight for last few graphs.

Question: Do you believe in a mythical free market system, too?
