A Free-Market Energy Vision — Robert L. Bradley Jr.

Freedom—the use of reason and persuasion in place of coercion—is a worthy goal. In the U.S. energy sector, market reliance, though compromised by both pro-business and anti-business government intervention, has produced economic coordination, fostered economic growth, and democratized wealth. Government intervention, on the other hand, such as occurred in the 1970s with U.S. oil and gas price controls, has produced shortages, civil strife, and bureaucratic waste. - Robert Bradley Jr.

Environmental Mush: An Ethical Abyss — Alan Caruba
