How Uber Runs Afoul of Government’s Monopoly Protection Machine

Anyone who has ever taken an economics class will have heard some variation on the following lesson: Monopolies are bad. They stifle competition, increase prices, reduce production, and generally abuse consumers. Images of greedy, mustachioed robber barons surveying their smoke-spewing factories with glee are called to mind, as we learn of how the good and noble government must step in to break up these evil and corrupt institutions.

The Online Sales Tax Rears Its Ugly Head… Again

Americans have been shopping online for 20 years now. What started as a curiosity has become routine and essential for millions of people, and the days when you had to physically track down a copy of a rare book or record have become an increasingly distant memory.
