Stifling regulations have left America with the most inefficient ports in the world:

A recent review of container-port efficiency ranked the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach below ports in Tanzania and Kenya, near the bottom of the list of 351 top ports. America’s ports are effectively third-world. The 50 most efficient ports in the world are mostly in Asia and the Middle East; none are in America.

    This isn’t incompetence. It’s policy. The results of any policy over time are the intended and actual policy.

    And our tears are our elites’ nectar.

    Bastiat said the purpose of government is to interfere.

    Certain views get reflected in policy. Plenty of antipathy toward consumerism and capitalism by some who have wheedled their way into oversight positions; they are happy to clog up our ports. Also reflected in the anti-oil and anti-coal movements.
