A Brief Post-Sandy Interview with John Stossel
John Stossel is adamant that the free market will sort everything out in post-Sandy disaster zones, such as New Jersey. In a painfully predictable Fox News op-ed, he criticized Governor Chris Christie for enforcing New Jersey’s law that restricts price increases above 10% during times of emergency. According to Stossel, the libertarian patron saint of the Mustachioed Month of Mouvember, people in Jersey would not be suffering the long lines at the pump if they would simply be willing to suffer price gouging and, uh, not having fuel at all.
The Indelible caught up with John Stossel and asked him to illustrate the government’s duty to citizens in times of emergency.
