The benefits of freedom: three quotes

Try these on for size — the day’s offering from north of the border:

“In ancient Babylon, Sumeria, Egypt, China, Greece, and Rome . . . price controls promoted not fairness but famine. During the twentieth century, central banks were supposed to help safeguard economies, but they brought on the worst inflations and depressions. Alcohol and drug prohibition, intended to enforce moral behavior, contributed to escalating violence.”
