Citing several studies showing that people “vote with their feet” by leaving states where “big government and big labor are imposing restrictions on efficient employment markets“, Dan Mitchell asks:
If we know that pro-market policies work for states, why does the crowd in Washington push for more statism?
And why isn’t the incoming crowd in Sacramento not seeking to undo the statist policies already in place in the (once-)Golden State? I mean, California does have the third highest unemployment rate.
Maybe those statist/pro-union policies have something to do with that?
