The United States is not Europe and Texas ain't France: America as the thoroughbred economy


  • Richard W. Fisher


Remarks before the Cato Institute, Washington, D.C., October 10, 2012 ; "I would suggest that if you want to see an economy that has avoided the traps of an overburdened social structure like that which you have discussed today, and if you want to consider a fiscal and regulatory regime that attracts rather than chases away business and jobs, you might look to Texas."
