Fracking, economic freedom, and David R. Henderson. Those were my thoughts this morning as I read the story on how NY may ban fracking.
The politicians in NY are making the decision that all NY citizens are not allowed to frack - even those who would wish to. It is a classic case where economic freedom is violated, although politicians will not phrase it that way. (They will always claim its for the greater good.)
Speaking of economic freedom - please mark your calendars for January 21st. David R. Henderson will be speaking at Susquehanna University. He might not address fracking specifically, but he's been on the front lines fighting for freedom for many years.
