A bit of good news in a rather dry season: As the Wall Street Journal wrote this week, the Administration has begun acknowledging how occupational licensing regimes are needless barriers to job creation, raise prices, and often do nothing in terms of advancing the public interests. It’s about time. IWF has written about this issue before, and the Institute for Justice has been the leader on this issue for years. Let’s hope this is the beginning of some actual bipartisan progress in reforming these bureaucratic regimes that make it harder for people (particularly people with less formal education) to get jobs. We could use a little of the American Dream being brought back to life.
