The Latest “Statist”


Hearing and seeing this term applied more and more to the Obama Administration:

STATISM: concentration of economic controls and planning in the hands of government often extending to government ownership of industry. Statism reached its highest point in the centrally planned fascist and communist countries, but exists in varying degrees in every country in the world.[4] Between the end of World War II and the fall of the USSR many Western European nations ran ‘mixed’ (10-40% public) economies. [Wikipedia]

Note these editorials using the term:

George Will – “A Doctrine of No Retreat”

Doug Patton – “And Then They Came For My IRA”

Gene Healy – “Obama’s statist ambitions”

Tom Borelli – “The Business Consequences of Challenging Obama’s Statist Policies”
