Was hier im Gewand von Wissenschaft daherkommt ist reine Ideologie. http://www.heritage.org/Index/ Wre sie auf die Vereinigten Staaten beschrnkt, knnte dies der Rest der Welt verschmerzen. Das ist jedoch nicht der Fall. Und so besteht die konomische Freiheit nicht in der Freiheit souverner Staaten, die ihren jeweiligen kulturellen Traditionen und spezifischen gesellschaftlichen Bedingungen gemen Wirtschaftsmodelle zu entwickeln.
