Event: Lincoln, “When Govt. Stacks the Deck”

June 11, 2013

As we move into the thick of summer we are going around the state for our “When Government Stacks the Deck” series.  This is an educational series on cronyism.

Basically, cronyism is a practice of government picking winners and losers (either purposefully or inadvertently) through special relationships between business and government, special tax breaks targeted at select businesses, etc.

The Nebraska Legislature recently approved policy measures to attract wind energy development in the state.  The tax break would likely only affect large companies.  Thus, putting smaller companies at a competitive disadvantage.  Likely not the intent of the bill, but it is the result.

Join us at BigShots Indoor Range to learn more about how cronyism erodes the free market and negatively effects all of us.
