Rent-Seeking


For John, BLUFYes, certain things need licenses and there should be some minimal training for certain non-standard tasks, or at least a test, but 1500 hours to be OK'd to shampoo hair is a little off the beam.  Nothing to see here; just move along.




From The Michigan Capitol Confidential.

This is "Rent-Seeking", which is, per my Computer installed dictionary:

the fact or practice of manipulating public policy or economic conditions as a strategy for increasing profits:  cronyism and rent-seeking have become an integral part of the way our biggest companies do business.
Are we saying, through the actions of the Government of Michigan, that women don't know a good shampoo from a bad one and that they are not able to tell their friends about their experiences?

This is worse than rent-seeking.  It is passing laws because we believe that women are not capable of making normal rational judgments.

Shame on the Michigan Legislature.  Shame!  Shame!

Hat tip to the InstaPundit.
