Palin on Energy

But Palin differs, saying, “We’ve got to allow the free market to dictate what’s most efficient and economical for our nation’s economy. No, at this time, our country can’t afford the subsidies. Before, though, we even start arguing about some of these domestic subsidies that need to be eliminated — should be — we need to look at ending subsidies and loans to foreign countries and their energy production that we’re relying on, like Brazil.”

Here.

The lady needs to verbiage to describe free markets.  Doesn’t quite make sense.  The “free market” is not a dictator.  It is a process of give-and-take, trial-and-error, and discovery.  It is what works. Further, subsidies are not luxuries we cannot afford. They are political actions implemented by government that distort what buyers and seller truly want. They prevent sellers from discovering what buyers truly want because sellers have to satisfy a new party to transactions: politicians.
