Free Market Or Crony Capitalism?

May 6, 2013 | APPEARED IN VOLUME 91, ISSUE 18

Should we allow lobbyists or the free market to decide whether “To Use or To Sell” natural gas (C&EN, Jan. 7, page 18, Jan. 28, page 6, and March 11, page 9)? Dow Chemical, Alcoa, and other members of America’s Energy Advantage want the freedom to sell their products in foreign markets, but they lobby government to prevent natural gas suppliers from doing the same. This is a great example of crony capitalism.
