The Land Of Strikes

Recently my native city had a bus strike in which private bus owners stopped running buses because the government wouldn’t let them freely choose ticket prices conducive to sustainable operation. This is not the first time this has happened and it explains the short-comings of a mixed economy i.e. an economy in which the government controls economic freedom. A freedom with controls is not freedom.

Perhaps one day, Indian government will realize that they ought not to be regulators, but be facilitators of economic activity. I pray that day comes soon.
