Re: Left, Right; and Liberal Economists

Please help make the Manifesto better, or accept it, and propagate it!
Should we equate big business with bad business?  For a liberal  economist 
all businesses are good as long as their "bigness" or "smallness" is earned 
thru the competitive market place.  In India, the license-permit raj created 
the situation where it was profitable to play the political game 
(rent-seeking) than to serve the customer.  For this, the primary blame 
should be on the government which created such the rent-seeking environment.

Economists are dime a dozen; mainly those are remembered who strive for the 
truth and stuck to their guns.  Chameleons do look powerful because they 
match their surroundings, but who considers them role model?
