Reason Weighs In on Ethanol; ACC Weighs In on Reason
And so goes the circle of life. With all the recent crossover between the Show-Me Institute, Reason, MoDOT rankings, etc., I feel the need to at least point out that Reason has released a new piece about the ethanol industry in America. Now, we didn’t have anything to do with this study, although we did release our own case study two months ago.
Dave over at the Arch City Chronicle was kind enough to note the work we have done with Reason, and the work of ours that they have carried in their 2008 privatization report. But back to ethanol.
The relevant Reason TV episode is very powerful. Please take a few minutes and watch it. The undeniable truth of the ethanol scam is that the entire industry would collapse if not for the subsidies and tariffs that prop it up. And, by the way, with gas prices as high as they are, this is the perfect time to find out: If an unsubsidized and unmandated ethanol product can’t succeed now, then when will it?
