My oped on PLCB privatization

Here's a link to my oped on PLCB privatization.  It ran in today's Harrisburg Patriot News.

It begins:

"Gov. Tom Corbett’s proposal to end the state’s liquor “monopoly” is a good thing. One of the basic principles of microeconomics is that for most products, government interference in markets creates inefficiency. 

If the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board’s monopoly on alcohol sales is broken, Pennsylvanians should enjoy lower prices without having to cross state lines. Therefore, this plan should be good for society."
