Hearing the Other Side: National Hall of Fame Teacher Interviews a Libertarian

by | Jun 9, 2022

… one of the most significant ways in which the government could aid the poor is by removing its own direct roadblocks from their productive energies. Thus, minimum wage laws disemploy the poorest and least productive members of the population. Government privileges to trade unions enable them to keep the poorer and minority-group workers from productive and high-wage employment. And licensing laws, the outlawing of gambling, and other government restrictions prevent the poor from starting small businesses and creating jobs on their own.

– Dr. Murray Rothbard, For a New Liberty, p. 206
