VIDEO: The Government is a Horrendous Private Sector Prognosticator

Seton Motley videoWe have before us – and the government – Comcast’s acquisition of Time Warner Cable. 

Which the Leviathan and the Left view as an opportunity to outright blockade the free market.  Or, barring that, unilaterally impose many, many a la carte regulations – that they otherwise can’t get imposed – in exchange for Mother-May-I government-transaction-approval. 

These are known as regulatory “concessions.”  Absurdly called that because we pretend the imposed-upon companies happily concede to these regulations – the same way I happily concede my wallet to the guys with the masks and the guns. 

These “concessions” are imposed – they claim – to try to mitigate what they think will be market harm resulting from the transaction. 

But really – who is LESS qualified to prognosticate what will happen in the market…than bureaucrats? 

Sadly, this is where we currently stand. 

In this video, we assess the situation – and implore the government to not yet again try to guess what’s going to happen, and preemptively regulate predicated thereon. 

Soothsayers they ain’t.
