I’m concerned about the state of business in America today. Really, I am!
I see it every day, businesses drowning in government regulations… regulations running rampant under the current administration.
As a result, business owners are living in a state of anxiety – not knowing what to expect next.
They could lose profits via new taxes…
Or see huge new expenses because of new legislation…
Or have projects shut down by the EPA…
They could even face huge lawsuits for spurious reasons, or get crippled by labor union strikes.
The list goes on.
Ultimately, when businesses live in a state of anxiety long enough, they tend to become cautious and freeze up.
They don’t hire or expand.
Instead, as John Hawkins quips, “[They] horde cash to make sure that [they] don’t get wiped out by some arbitrary decision made by a government official who has never so much as run a lemonade stand in his life.”
Bottom line: It’s time for the government to step away and allow businesses to flourish on their own – without a steady stream of regulations to hamper growth.
That’s the only way we’re going to stabilize our economy in the long run.
I don’t want to say too much more at this time.
Just know that you’re going to hear a lot more from me on this issue in the coming weeks.
For now, I’ll just leave it at that.
