If both the West and the East adopted laissez-faire capitalism, they would finally meet and profit from their sweetly complementary strengths, says Fred Reed.
However, “government investing in infrastructure” is leftist gibberish and is just as silly and wasteful as government “investing” into military. Most of the infrastructure, if it is to be built, should be built by private enterprise.
Fred should realize that one is either a private entrepreneur who “can do things,” or a government bureaucrat whose main job is preventing private entrepreneurs from doing things. Not both at the same time.
