Do we really have a free market in America or is the free market dead? This is a question that doesn’t seem so outlandish anymore. I was telling a friend the other day how different the 1980s felt as compared to today in terms of opportunity. What I was feeling in the 80s was a market that was less regulated than the one we have today. You could feel the opportunity in the air. Back then the landscape of the market permitted people like Bill Gates and Steve Jobs too take an idea and turn it into something great. Could they do the same today? My guess is no. Below is a clip of my favorite judge asking the question, “Do we really have a free market in America anymore?” Check it out.
So based on the judge’s analysis and your own personal experience in today’s economic environment, do we really have a free market anymore? I definitely have my doubts.
Liberty forever, freedom for all!
