    The New Free Market Minute

    Part of the problem with the electorate, is a decidedly poor attention span.

    Most folks can't hold on to a thought for more than a minute or so before the phone rings, or a hot flash news item distracts them.  In fact lives have become so busy, its amazing that understanding of cause and effect is as broad as the 5% that it seems to be. In fact I fear analytical abilities are on the wane. Without that important skill, it is becoming increasingly difficult to keep people focused on what has truly become the enemy of our liberty.

    When government controls our purse, we are not truly free.


    Below the fold, is a new project I hope will help to reverse the trend towards political and economic ignorance.  It will be offered free for a time to radio stations that wish to have a morning minute type programming, or even something for fill in between programming.  It will be edgy, and hopefully coherent.  

    The idea came while making commercials for the state representative race I was recently involved with.  As one of the most effective parts of the campaign, it was clear how effective radio could be if used properly.  At the same time, it provides a new programming option for stations that want to enhance their talk radio line up.

    A battery maker runs out of juice

    I'm Jason Gillman, and this is your free market minute

    A123 Systems, a Michigan manufacturer of batteries for electric vehicles has said it may be selling an 80 percent stake to a Chinese firm, in order to remain viable.

    Normally, this would be simply a story of a business that risked, yet failed to profit enough to survive. Risking capital to seek reward is a function of free and open markets, and has been the foundation of the freest civilization on the planet.

    In 2009, A123 received millions in federal and state funds, for the creation of jobs for Michiganders. Taxpayers  unwillingly, or unwittingly saw their paychecks shrink for promises never realized, and now they may have ultimately subsidized a technology transfer to a competing world power.

    As the picking of winners and losers continues in Lansing, Should we wonder what opportunities have been missed? What if money taken by Lansing would have been left in the registers of Michigan jobs creators who need no incentives?

    For business seeing its pockets being picked, the answer is clear.

    Government is not an energizer.

    I'm Jason Gillman, and this has been your free market minute.

    Please comment on this.  Offer critique, or ideas, and feel free to contact me with script suggestions.

    Thanks in advance

    Has not only allowed the opportunity for Joe at large to get out his message in written form, but others as well.

    I think that the free market minute is good, but I also think you could put an actual radio show together (Internet based, that is).
