I don't have an OP, I just wanted to start a conversation on this.
If you put the federal government in charge of the Sahara Desert, in 5 years there'd be a shortage of sand. - Friedman

Underlying most arguments against the free market is a lack of belief in freedom itself. -Friedman

Nothing is so permanent as a temporary government program. - Friedman

Society will never be free until the last Democrat is strangled with the entrails of the last Communist.

In general I agree. I think it's important to emphasize to people that there are no real solutions in economics, only trade offs. Many people simply assume that some social program will cure a particular social ill, but they completely the unintended consequences. Unfortunately those consequences often lead to something worse than the original problem.
