From James Paterson | Thursday, 24 October 2013
Last week we told you about how free markets make everything better. So it’s only fair and balanced that we tell you the other side of the story too. Government regulation makes everything worse:
For a great explanation of why governments have made housing expensive, read this from our very own Dr Alan Moran.
Our very own Sinclair Davidson, also a professor at RMIT, was recognised on Monday for hismammoth contribution to public debate. Here are three of Sinclair’s best hits:
And who knew tennis star Andre Agassi was a closet fan of the free market?

Hate the Nanny State? Then you’ll love this completely free online 1 hour 45 minute documentaryfrom 2009, Fat Head, which exposes the flawed arguments of paternalists.
If you’re in Melbourne next Thursday don’t miss this important discussion of a new book from Connor Court, co-edited by the IPA’s Tim Wilson, Turning left or right.
Here’s what else the IPA said this week:
Scallop fishermen believe a new study will prove that seismic testing by oil and gas exploration companies in Bass Strait is responsible for the deaths of marine life.
The Institute for Marine and Antarctic Studies will carry out the research, which will concentrate on the effects of seismic activity on scallops and rock lobsters.
CEO of the Tasmanian Scallop Fishermen’s Association Bob Lister believes testing in 2010 killed around 24,000 tonnes of scallops, and the industry is still suffering with a poor scallop season this year in Bass Strait..
“Something like 200 tonnes of scallops has been harvested to date, but that’s a very small quantity given the very large area that we’re looking into,” he said.
“Again, we believe it’s the impact of seismic causing deaths to mature scallops, growing scallops and probably the larvae of scallops that have caused that season to be very poor.”
ALSO LANDLINE VIEWED OCT.
The Australian scallop fishery is now a fraction of its former self, the industry is struggling with regulations and trying to stay ahead of a mysterious algal bloom.
SO GOOD: Paris Morgan will perform on Australia’s Got Talent this Sunday.
