Much of the past 12 months, both in America and around the world, has been devoted to discussions of Keynesianism versus the Austrian School of economics; of the value versus risks of “Quantitative Easing,” of free markets versus government-dominated markets; and of the right of government to accede to unlimited demands on her resources, no matter the cost.

In our April and May 2001 issues we reported on the administrative hearings involving the 16-to-1 Mine and their fight against countless MSHA citations, many of which seemed to be driven by inspectors following their own agenda.
What gives this illustration great importance is America may be facing the same kind of dilemmas that have brought Japan’s market such long-term grief.
