ENGAGING THE ANTI-ENTREPREURIAL ESTABLISHMENT: Jeanette Peterson of Washington State's new Institute for Justice (IJ) Chapter, has an op-ed in today's Seattle P-I about our state's abysmal small business environment.

I'm glad to see IJ on the march on this one! This garbage collector's case and those that follow will be very interesting to watch! Our state's regulatory establishment will never surrender--it has to be defeated, whether it be through the legislature or the courts. Monopolists have no incentive to give up their monopolies and we cannot rely on the beneficence of unelected bureaucrats.

Jeanette's article, it seems to me, has a simple message to the regulators and anti-small business folks: be afraid.
