The New York Times advances a questionable hypothesis

"Industrial policy" redux?

James Pethokoukis observes that Hillary Clinton sounds like she wants to implement "industrial policy".


My suggestion: conservatives should chip in to buy Ms. Clinton and her political allies each a copy of the newest expansion pack of Civilization. It's fabulous. It would keep them busy for months at a time. And they would get what they have always wanted: a chance to run the world. And we would get what we have always wanted: that they would leave our economy alone.

Pareto improving. Win, win. What more can you ask for?
