Existing laws don't quite fit the sharing economy of Uber, Airbnb, and Lyft. How can we best structure laws for innovation and entrepreneurship?
In the sharing economy, safety issues, taxes and regulation have tended to be an afterthought. But now, regulators and officials are questioning the practices of start-ups like Airbnb and Uber.

Safety? Regulations cannot guaranty safety.
Satisfaction? Regulations cannot guaranty consumer satisfaction.
Loss of Tax Revenue? Why should the state have a cut of my hard work?

Voluntary association is sufficient to manage consumer risk, and the self governance of these organizations ensures a quality brand - a set of protections unto itself.

In letting our opponents redefine the terms of the debate, we have allowed ourselves to descend to the position where we constantly have to explain what we don't mean.

The unpredictable and spontaneous relationships that build up cities can't be recreated by planning, even in a single neighborhood.

The new mini-documentary Locked Out tells the courageous story of Melony Armstrong, who overcame the odds to overhaul the state of Mississippi’s licensing requirements for African hair braiding.

Not only is it a powerful story about free enterprise, but it also highlights how aggressive regulatory regimes undermine human flourishing and societal well-being.

Happy Earth Day!

Don't let anyone convince you that the government needs to manage our natural resources. Our second installment of Cliches of Progressivism explains why.

This month's Arena debate: Which Way Do You Lean on Economic Theory?

Read these quotes from Mises and Friedman and choose the one that aligns with your opinion of what makes for good economics.

I bet Mises would say to the Friedmanites, "You're all a bunch of Socialists."

Forget the "markets vs. the State" debate. Systems of voluntary cooperation are what build societies and prosperity.

FEE is proud to partner with the Young America's Foundation (YAF) to produce "Clichés of Progressivism," a series of insightful commentaries covering topics of free enterprise, income inequality, and limited government.

www.FEE.org/cliches

The first cliche, written by Freeman Editor and Director of Content Max Borders, addresses economic inequality in the marketplace.

The opinion editorials/columns will be published weekly, so be sure to check back each week!

Introduction
The Foundation for Economic Education (FEE), one of the oldest free-market organizations in the United States, was founded in 1946 by Leonard E. Read to study and advance the freedom philosophy. FEE’s mission is to offer the most consistent case for the “first principles” of freedom: the sanctity of private property, individual liberty, the rule of law, the free market, and the moral superiority of individual choice and responsibility over coercion.
