Quote of the Day

“Most lobbying is probusiness, in the sense that it promotes the interest of existing businesses, not promarket in the sense of fostering truly free and open competition.”  Italics in original.

Luigi Zingales, economist at the University of Chicago, quoted in “The Self-Destruction of the 1 Percent,” Chrystia Freeland, NYT
