Quote of the day

"Wherever producers have secured any power, they have used it to limit production, to enhance prices, and, in a word, to rob the rest of us. Power in the hands of producers has never been employed except to limit the wealth of the whole community. No force known to economic science or to experience, except the force of competition, has ever done anything to keep producers in order, and without competition they have always contrived to limit their production and to diminish their contribution to the commonwealth."

Publisher Sir Ernest Benn (1875-1954), Why Freedom Works
