Good Enough for Iraq, Good Enough for Here?


In an editorial on economic reforms in Iraq, The Washington Times approvingly notes,

Less than five months after the end of major combat operations, Iraq's newly appointed finance minister has announced extensive free-market economic reforms, including "allow[ing] up to 100 percent foreign ownership in all sectors except natural resources."

One question for the Bush administration: Hey, if it's such a good idea in Iraq–and it is–why not here in the good ol' US of A, where such useless restrictions remain in many industries, including the airline industry.
