Writes Peter Gay:
Check out this nonsense. Once again, a perfectly reasonable and predictable outcome of price controls is blamed for the chaos the government created. In this case, the man’s “crime” was twofold: taking advantage of artificially low prices, and being more efficient than the government in relief work for his neighborhood. As usual, the one the State calls a criminal is in fact a hero!8:05 am on November 5, 2012 Email Llewellyn H. Rockwell, Jr.
