The game is rigged against the little guy and in favor of the big guy. Government does most of the rigging. Some stories I came across today:
- Billionaire Obama fundraiser Warren Buffett took some time over dinner to thank bailed-out Barney Frank donor Brian Moynihan, CEO of Bank of America, for taking good care of Buffett’s billions in Moynihan’s taxpayer-backed bank.
- “Lawmakers assembled in Baton Rouge approved two economic incentive packages Thursday for Sasol and Lockheed Martin, just one week after expressing concerns about their cost. Louisiana’s chief economist said the projects would result in a net cost to the state” New Orleans Times-Picayune.
