Crony Capitalism: By-Product of Big Government

http://mercatus.org/sites/default/files/Crony-Capitalsim-Holcombe-v1-0_0.pdf

——————–

The academic literature indicates that, in addition to other negative effects, cronyism can cause public mistrust in government that limits the effectiveness of core government functions such as maintaining property rights and other individual rights…  The literature also suggests that trust can be restored by the practice of good government.  It seems that the best way to do so is with a smaller, more focused government that is centered on carrying out its core functions and to steer clear of cronyism.
