Yet the Market Provided the Solar Boom!
It does not take the government to create a market; on the contrary, the government interferes with the real market drivers: consumers. Of course, to unpack this statement would take a long and complex dissection of all the governmental interference to get back to the exact ratio between consumer and governmental forces which started the solar clean energy market in the first place. And further one needs to investigate how “clean” solar energy really is. But let’s keep it simple for this story. For this is an example of how the market works to create what is needed. Remember supply and demand? When the consumer “demands” a product, the smart, astute entrepreneur realizes this and delivers the product. With the competitive forces of other entrepreneurs doing the same thing, the products get better and cheaper. Why? Because the highest quality cheapest product will always be chosen over the more expensive lower quality product by the consumer. Our “Founding Fathers” knew that governments only disrupt the natural markets and they kept them out of the market with constitutional mandates that have been carelessly overridden by ignorant legislators and businesspeople who do not care about freedom as much as profit.
