"Here’s a quick question for anyone who takes seriously politicians’ pronouncements about what particular industries are 'vital' or are 'of the future' or are 'crucial to meeting consumers’ needs' .... Why do virtually none of these politicians, when they leave office, found their own non-political firms -- firms that specialize neither in granting clients access to incumbent politicians nor in projects that depend upon getting subsidies or other favors from those same politicians?"
