Cleaning out my files–part 2: Joe Kennedy, Hugo Chavez, and Jodi Rell

Joe Kennedy claims that Hugo Chavez is “our friend,” apparently because he is willing to starve his own people (reg. req.), through price controls, in order to score PR points by giving cheap fuel to Americans.

Iain Murray explains why price controls are a stupid idea here.

Jodi Rell shows off her knowledge of basic economics here.  Her ignorance makes me very worried about her plan for universal health coverage.

I’m just connecting the dots, people…  The fact that the free market is not “fair” doesn’t mean it should be subverted, because usually the cure is much worse than the disease.
