I here give personal experience to the quote's accuracy. I can not get certain materials (perfectly safe), in conjunction with what I manufacture, to offer the best product of its type in the world.

    If it moves, tax it, If it keeps moving, regulate it, If it stops moving, subsidize it. Ronald Reagan on the effects of "too much Government"
     -- J Carlton, Calgary     
    Because of unnecessary government regulations and monopolistic union rackets, American manufacturing of material goods has plummeted. It is too expensive to produce in America so we buy slave labor's crappy products from China. Let someone manufacture and distribute something without government intervention or prohibiting employers from contracting their workers on their own terms and you will see a successful business.
     -- E Archer, NYC     
    Let the free market work without interference from the government and labor unions and these industries would still be thriving in the USA and not overseas.
