Every year more Americans are giving up their citizenship and moving to foreign countries. Some leave because of high tax rates, while others are exiting because of excessive business regulation. In either case, the result is that smart, talented entrepreneurs are flowing out from, rather than into, the U.S. economy.

"This summer I have the privilege of lecturing at two of the many seminars that the Foundation for Economic Education offers to select college and high school students, and to prepare for them I reread Hazlitt’s classic. Once again, I was impressed by the level of economic analysis it contains, especially in the chapters titled ‘Saving the X Industry’ and ‘Minimum Wage Laws’ for their rigor as well as the sensitivity to and concern for the human condition that they embody." - Sandy Ikeda
Read the two things that stuck out to Sandy in this most recent reading of Hazlitt’s masterpiece: http://www.FEE.org/the_freeman/detail/a-lot-of-economics-in-one-lesson
As the feds fight against bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies, they will find that the tables of political action have turned: The beneficiaries of these diffuse systems are legion, and spread far and wide. But the costs of fighting technological advancement and increased monetary freedom are laid squarely at the feet of the government.
America’s surveillance state has always aimed at social and political control. But the NSA isn’t the only story; it might not even be our biggest threat.

"In societies with more economic freedom, decreased taxes and regulation make it easier to accumulate savings and to start or expand a business. Today in the United States, getting permits and navigating the legal maze to start a business can cost tens of thousands of dollars. Getting the permit for a food truck, and complying with the various laws, can cost $15,000 at the high end.
Some of these regulations drain money from existing corporations, leaving them with fewer funds to expand; others impose hefty costs on anyone wishing to start a business. Both ultimately discourage wealth creation. Countries or states with more economic freedom therefore have more jobs, more innovation, and more goods and services—ultimately more wealth—than societies burdened by a heavy government.”
