Why Can't Chuck Get His Business Off the Ground?

iam.ij.org How can Americans create private sector jobs? The solution to America’s jobs problem lies not with budget-busting federally mandated “stimulus” programs. Instead, what is needed are specific reforms that wouldn’t cost taxpayers, would create a broader tax base for cash-strapped cities and states, and would provide opportunity for millions of Americans who worry where their next paycheck is coming from. As demonstrated by a series of eight new reports issued in October 2010 by the Virginia-based Institute for Justice, one of the principal obstacles to creating new jobs and entrepreneurial activity in cities across the country is the complex maze of regulations cities and states impose on small businesses. IJ’s “city study” reports are filled with real-world examples of specific restrictions that often make it impossible for entrepreneurs to create jobs for themselves, let alone for others. Chip Mellor, the president and general counsel of the Institute for Justice, said, “If the nation is looking to the federal government to create jobs in America, it is looking in the wrong place. If we want to grow our economy, we must remove government-imposed barriers to honest enterprise at the city and state levels. Remove those barriers, and you will see a return to the optimism and opportunity that are hallmarks of the American Dream.” IJ’s eight reports document how irrational and anti-competitive regulations block entrepreneurship.

    What I want to know is, are there any local or state governments that are doing away with any of their regulations to increase job growth? Not that I expect government or cancer to try to shrink itself…

    To be more technical, it’s corporatism – based on old British mercantilism. But you are absolutely right when you say that it is NOT capitalism. Capitalism cannot exist in the absence of a Free Market.

    What we have isn’t capitalism. It’s cronyism. Big entities paying off Congressmen to get their way and screw everyone else. We haven’t had a truly free market system for decades, but since people still CALL IT capitalism, the Left gets to vilify it and point every time they add a new rule saying “See? Capitalism doesn’t work” when we haven’t had it for as long as most people have been alive.

  11. jonescomplete says:

    this is the opposite of capitalism btw. socialist governments loooooove big companies because they are easier to manage, and if they go rouge, easier to vilify.

  12. jonescomplete says:

    lmfao you might want to take another look at those two… this is no free country, but at least we do not have a progressive majority. move to an area were the general population is poor but has growing industry, like china or India or anywhere in central africa. I am moving to India.. Go to a place where the gov simply cannot manage you haha 😀

    I wish I had the ability but I’m not good with the cold so I’ll just go underground live in a hole or above ground in the middle of nowhere and develop software that i can sell tax free. hehehe

  14. cmb271 says:

    Well yes, you need the government to shove their finger in your ass, then you gotta pay for insurance so when you blow a thiefs head off for stealing your stuff your insurance can pay it and a business license to sell or give away anything you make or find and blah blah blah government bullshit.

    LOL To be a taxi driver in Bay County FL, you only have to have a vehicle, a sign, and insurance. But if you want to pick up people in Panama City, Panama City Beach, or the Airport (which is in the county) you must meet their requirements and have your vehicle inspected, and pay a fee for the vehicle and the driver permits.
