A “Bold Vision” for “We” “As A Country”


The new “bold vision” the Canadian Auto Workers union is pushing means just one thing: they want the money, other people’s money, for themselves.

The push is disguised under the political “we”. Economic analysis (both social choice and public choice theories) show that the “we as a country” has no ascertainable meaning, except dictatorial: those who utter it want their preferences to be imposed to others.

For a summary of relevant theories, see my “The Public Choice Revolution”, Regulation 27:3 (2004).
