Here’s a tweet by Matt Yglesias:

It’s not just housing

Is it really that “strange”?  Yes, there’s far too much government planning in the housing sector.

But housing is a laissez-faire paradise compared to America’s second largest sector—health care.

And health care is a laissez-faire paradise compared to America’s third largest sector—education.

And then there’s agriculture.  Law.  Transportation.  I could go on and on.

To be clear, America is a more free market economy than most other countries.  But how often to you see pundits claim that, “Actually, country X is not a free market economy”, and then cite some intervention that is fairly minor compared to the widespread interventions in America’s second and third largest sectors?
