    Anonymous: that article is brilliant. Every once in a while, a NY Times reporter is stunned to discover that capitalism works. Living in their liberal media bubble, these reporters are shocked to find perfectly reasonable people giving an intelligent defense of a free economy.

    To Mr. Adam Davidson of the NY Times: free enterprise is the safest and fairest way to organize the overwhelming complexity of an economy. Brings to mind the classic lesson by Leonard Reed: everyone owns a pencil, but no individual knows how to make one:

    The promises are many, but here’s the reality of the new police state: NYPD Raids Activists’ Homes Before May Day Protests
    A day before Occupy Wall Street hopes to shut down New York and cities across the country in massive May Day protests, the NYPD visited at least three activist homes in New York and interrogated residents about plans for tomorrow’s protest.
    Today “there was definitely an upswing in law enforcement activity that seemed to fit the pattern of targeting what police might view as political residences,” said Gideon Oliver, the president of the New York Chapter of the National Lawyers Guild, which offers legal to support to Occupy Wall Street. “They were asking what are your May Day plans, do you know who the leaders are—these are classic political surveillance questions.”……

    NYT article was more a testament to a nyt reporter who is in awe of rich people. For a rich guy to say the world is better off because he’s rich is silly. Lets strip away all the tax advantaged benefits these corps have, strip out the legislative hurdles to exclude new competitiors, then lets talk free market. Otherwise, its just another rich guy saying hes better than you.

    Look where free enterprise has gotten us

    Chris-100% agreed but the system has veered off course and needs some corrections. Democracy and free markets , as well as a republic, dont support gov’t deciding who wins and loses in almost every industry.

    Balzac: I thought you were going to treat us to another one of your treatises on how trickle down economics is the most awesome economic doctrine ever. Just look how splendidly it works for anyone who isn’t rich. But for Randroids, of course, if you’re not rich, you’re a moocher, not a jahhhhb creeahhhtor.

    O represents the vested interests of the past:

    sums up the world we live in. In politics Barack Obama and the Obama Democrats are trying to preserve, protect and extend centralizing institutions in a time when the economy and culture are decentralizing. Those policies are producing disappointing economic and political results, because they go against the grain of our evolving society.

    Republicans, in contrast, tend to favor policies that work in tandem with the decentralizing trend. But explaining that is difficult. This is what I was getting at in my April 8 Examiner column, in these paragraphs on how Mitt Romney might make his case to young voters.

    “Romney needs to make the case that current policy — what Obama has fallen back on — is leading to a crash in which government will fail to keep its promises.

    “He needs to argue that his ‘opportunity society’ means vibrant economic growth that can provide, in ways that can’t be precisely predicted, opportunities in which young people can find work that draws on their special talents and interests.

    “Obama’s policies, in contrast, treat individuals as just one cog in a very large machine, designed by supposed experts who don’t seem to know what they’re doing (see Obamacare, Solyndra). Their supposedly cutting edge technology (electric cars, passenger rail) is more than a century old.”

    $ Bill: I am happy you participate in this blog. Your comments provoke many interesting exchanges.
    Evidently you didn’t read the NYTimes article in question. The author notes that Google made its founders rich, but its benefits to millions of internet users are much much greater than the founders’ wealth. The same occurred when Henry Ford (personally a son-of-a-bitch, yadayada) got filthy rich by making cars everyone could afford. This productive and democratic process had nothing to do with trickle down, Rand or other bizarre ideas of yours.
    You’re a smart guy, so look at the Occupy ideas and tell us whether they are motivated by a real understanding of capitalism, or by envy and resentment of the rich and powerful.
    As Alinsky wrote, leadership for radicals is: “provoke the resentment, channel the resentment”. We realists see this as the theme of the Obama presidency, and its policies like the Buffett rule, which will have no real effect to raise government revenue, but a great effect on stirring up resentment.
