Mohave Greenie December 24, 2016 at 7:53 pm But as an gains seeking capitalist, above average profits is precisely why I am investing my money. There is also usually a healthy dose of risk to go along with it. The rent seeking is usually done via regulation, so that would be where to attack it. Otherwise you risk taxing the risk taking that leads to higher productivity.
