    If people cannot find truth in one country, they’ll immigrate to another. I’ll bet the population of the U.S. decrease within the next few years.

    On the issue of regulations:

    Can you please pass on this question to Dr Paul?

    A brief clarification of the meaning of regulation is needed. Be it private or public.

    See, with all the current problems there’s indeed a deficit of trust, so no regulation would be interpreted as ‘you can do what you want’, sell anything or miracle cure with no valid basis, can add any thing to a product, or set a private business for some kind of ‘electronic or high tech miracle cure’.

    So unregulation means anything goes?

    Thanks

      Honestly, I don’t think there’s a difference. Unethical business behavior is used because there are no/little consequences for the people or corporations using them. In Economics it is every bit in ones interest to be as honest and quality driven as possible, otherwise you don’t stay in business very long and you loose both real and potential capital. Most regulations are written by the regulated and serve only to mitigate responsibility to the public, through the monopolization of force by the government. Regulations protect the company from liability more than they protect the consumers. Deregulation also means that all unequally favored entities, now are liable for their actions. Yes, it puts the average person at greater risk but they now have far more power to be compensated for wrongdoing through private property laws.

        Well, I think of regulation as a set of standards to conform to because they have been worked out for the public good. For health or any other issue.

        So, one will use private property law for business, health, reputation, etc?

        Thanks for your info.

          “Well, I think of regulation as a set of standards to conform to because they have been worked out for the public good. For health or any other issue.”

          That is indeed the theory behind them, but as you look closer they only benefit the consumer secondly. In more instances than not the first beneficiary is the regulated, alleviating them of liability, and making it expensively prohibitive for their smaller competitors. In most cases smaller competitors are driven out of business, making the market-share those large companies hold, even greater. Its a self feeding leviathan. Companies lobby to get regulations, which gives the state more power, which companies use to further lobby for more regulations, which further increases state power.

          “So, one will use private property law for business, health, reputation, etc?”

          Yes, Those are all examples your private property, with the exception of reputation. You don’t own the minds of others, and your reputation only matters in those minds, external to your own. Reputation is also freely abundant, and Private property laws only codify the rights of scarcity.

        it’s in a company’s best interest to be ethical? maybe your local bakery or restaurant, but does being ethical help multi-nationals? standard oil became the leading oil company under Rockefeller because it did everything above board? Enron became huge because it did everything above board? JP Morgan became rich because he was honest? that argument holds no water. businesses, like people, will take advantage where advantage suits them. this belief that the market will correct itself and regulate itself has no foundation in reality. while over-regulation stagnates economies, no regulation simply allows for monopolies to form and rip off the consumer with no consequence.

          but what do these companies look for?

          regulation that works in their favour…and against their competitors.

          remove the regulation and they have to compete in the free market.

          e.g. JPM, GS, AIG, Wells Fargo… all currently can ‘outcompete’ (ostensibly) your local bank…why?
          because they have regulations that bailed them out.

          Fem… LIBERTY does mean ‘anything goes’… not just things that YOU approve of. Why? because something you find offensive that someone does, turned around also means something YOU do offends someone. If we give government the power to ‘regulate’ this behaviour, whoever’s in government gets to mandate whatever THEY find offensive.

          What’s the ‘limit’ to this? 2 simple rules. No coercion (violence or threat thereof), and respect of private property rights.

          If you think you ‘own’ your house, even if the mortgage is paid off, think again, there are no ‘private’ property rights. You owe property taxes, and the IRS will send a SWAT team if you fail to pay. So that fails the 2 tests.

          Bob,
          Firstly, you would trade a monopoly of business, for a monopoly of force and violence?
          Secondly, that is a half truth. In Business there are two sides to scale. There is the “economy of scale” which mean that as a buisness grows, the per-unit cost of their product or service goes down. Then there is the “diseconomy of scale” which means that as this entity grows the per-unit cost of the product goes up, unless this can be offset to the individual consumers. Most international corporations do this by using public roads, public land, and public funds through subsidies, and they protect their standing through the legal monopoly on violence the state holds. Try to imagine how costly it would be if they had to provide those for themselves. In all likelihood monopolies would not be as prevalent in a truly free-market society because there would be little or no means for them to off set the diseconomies to the consumers. Not to say that they wouldn’t exist at all, but only a modicum of imagination is needed to see that there could be spontaneous solutions to prevent them from attaining too much power, and there would many disincentives for them to even grow to that size.

    If the news business really want to make a good social contribution here are some simple suggestions:

    1- Make a simple but comprehensive diagram of the current health care system, put in some $$$$ numbers used, services provided, number of people serviced and what sector of society. So that people can make an informed choice that is beneficial, including VOTES.

    2- Inform the people what ‘socialized medicine’ is and how it differs from the other options. Show us numbers too.

    3-If the current problems are not solved because all it matters is to sell the news and get VOTES, then inform us what law allows to go out of the country for reliable medical services. I don’t want that, but are running out of ideas to survive.

    socialized medicine isnt that bad. Socialism is that government simply dont have certain things for non-profit. Like prison farms. Education. Military. And health care. The United States is putting more of its fellow citizens in prison than anywhere else in the world. 5 times higher than China. Obamacare is really Bob Doles old plan from 1994. Most of Obamas Political idea are really republican.

      I would recommend reading Henry Hazlitt’s Economics in One Lesson. Socialism is self destructive becuase it perverts the Profit/Loss paradigm. There are no proper tests to see if the product or service is being employed or created efficiently, which effectively removes the incentives for innovation, and consumes wealth and resources. Why do you think the USA lead the world in medical innovation for so long? How come you heard at 20:1 new medical advancements coming out of the US vs. Everywhere else? Why not Canada or the UK? The slightly freer market in the US rewarded people for innovating medicine more than in any other country. Profit/loss is far and beyond the most effective test and reward system to spark innovation. Socialism unintentionally lowers the standard of living for everyone, because it more prone to wealth destruction, than creation, making things more expensive for everyone. Capitalism unintentionally raises the standard of living for everyone, because wealth is allowed to be created, saved, and grown making things less expensive for everyone. Do you drive an affordable car? Do you own an affordable computer? Do you have food in your fridge? Do you own a fridge? Do you have clothes on your back? All brought to you by capitalism and profit! Sure greed is “evil”, but most of the products of it are really good.

      It should be mentioned that that argument could be used for any of the examples you cited.

      Profit, and by extension greed, encourages the production of abundance.
      Abundance lowers the cost, making more good and services available to more consumers.
      Profit unintentionally raises the standard of living for everyone, not just an unequally favored minority of the population.

      I would agree, however, that too many citizens are being imprisoned for non-violent / non-victim crimes and this should be addressed immediately.
