How is it that progressives, who otherwise favor all sorts of forms of economic regulation, occupational licensing schemes, and unnecessary barriers to entry, find this single cartel–taxi cabs–is unnecessary.
Well, many progressives have suddenly found another cartel they can’t stand. New Jersey, as well as Texas, and Arizona, only permit the sale of cars through in-state car dealerships. This renders the Tesla sales model–selling direct to consumers–illegal in many states.
And, like always, they're wrong.
