Bottleneckers coins new word in american lexicon

[Books will be for sale at the event!]

  • Bottleneckers exposes industry insiders who convinced the government to block competitors through anticompetitive laws and regulations.
  • Everyone from President Obama to Charles Koch now agrees government overregulation in the form of occupational licensing arbitrarily forecloses economic opportunity, especially for entrepreneurs of modest means.
  • Bottleneckers provides a fascinating history of why many Americans can’t simply start their own businesses. It puts a human face on the villains behind laws that limit competition.
