While waiting yesterday at the doctor's office, I had the opportunity to thumb through the February 12th issue of Forbes, wherein Paul Johnson penned an essay on the virtues of capitalism. Full read worthy essay is here. Excerpt here:
"This is not to say that the job of the U.S. government is to shape and run the nation’s economy. Far from it. Government’s job is to make it possible for the economy to run itself, in the interests of all its components and to the benefit of the American people, whether they be producers, suppliers or consumers."
