Ideas and Consequences: Economic Opportunity Needs A Moral Dimension

JUNE 01, 1994 by LAWRENCE W. REED

What really deserves our attention are those specific barriers to economic opportunity erected by government—regulations, taxes, licensure laws, unfunded mandates, building and zoning codes, special privileges for organized labor, subsidies to business, chronic budget deficits that consume needed capital, a welfare system that puts a premium on idleness and a penalty on work, and an education monopoly that fails to teach children as it vacuums their parents' wallets, to name a few.
