Economic Stimulus the Old-Fashioned Way January 31, 2014Posted by geoff in News.
…where by “old-fashioned way” I mean “letting businesses operate without excessive and nonsensical regulation.”
Amazingly enough, today’s example of deregulation comes from California. In a freakish display of common sense, the State passed a law last year permitting “cottage food,” i.e., production and sale of food made in people’s homes.
As was the case when they legalized home beer making, an explosion of business ensued:
In Los Angeles County, there are almost 270 cottage food businesses. Statewide, over 1,200 homemade food businesses have been approved.
There you go: make doing business easier, and business expands. A simple truth, but one apparently hidden from our Executive Branch.
