THE D.C. TAXI COMMISSION’S protectionist regulatory strategy. “Like any other business, taxi drivers think it would be great if no one could compete with them.” Plus this: “If the taxi commission really hasn’t been capable of processing a new application in almost four years, perhaps we should outsource their work to the folks at the Apple Store, or for that matter, the DC DMV, both of which seem able to process thousands of applications a week.”
It’s almost as if the regulators don’t really care about consumer welfare or something. . . .
