Heavy Lifting - thoughts and web finds by an economist

I am constantly amazed by folks who are perfectly fine with the government telling OTHERS what to do with their private property and then are shocked when the sights are focused on them.
Case in point - Tennessee professors who are being threatened by legislation that will limit the ability for them to use their own textbooks in the classroom. From the story:
1. students already have the "right" to not buy the textbook for any class and have plenty of alternatives to the campus bookstore monopoly.
2. The textbooks NOT written by TN professors were not written by robots!! Any textbook sold is going to send royalties to the author whether they are from North Dakota or Tennessee. If the politicians were consistent, they would discuss the economic impact of the royalties to the TN professor relative to a TX professor or a NC professor.
