The PLCB (Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board) has a monopoly on the sale of wine and spirits in the state.
“A monopoly is a grant of special privilege by the State, reserving a certain area of production to one particular individual or group.” – Ludwig von Mises Institute
Consequently, the following line from an article about PLCB’s plans to “modernize” laughably stupid.
“They also want lawmakers to let them create so-called ‘loyalty clubs,’ to offer customers discounts.”
How the hell can customers be loyal when there’s no competition?! Is this a case of Orwellian political newspeak or further evidence that the PA government is dominated by economic ignoramuses?
This nonsense has to stop. Abolish the PLCB!
