Laissez Faire

The Republican mantra is business, if left alone, would run things much better than governments do now. I think this highly unlikely. With government, the people running things are largely crooked, out for personal gain, but they are constrained by the fact they have to behave sufficiently well to get reelected. A businessman makes no bones that he has no other goal but extracting money from others by hook or by crook. He is trained in business school that ethics are for sissies. He is like a politician who is not running for reelection, who need not make even a pretence of doing the right thing.
