QE∞ Happy Hour

Quantitative Easing can now last for ever!

The good times at LOTR will only last a few hours but we hope some quantity of food and beverages will help ease the $40 Billion/month heading to the next induced bubble while your economic future and freedom tend to lag.

Have a conversation about monetary policy and other topics in a fun and free setting.  All ages, mindsets and levels of education are welcome to join discussions on freedom.

Thursday October 20th at 5:30PM until around 8:30 or so.  Join in at any time, stay as long as you like.  Mafiaoza’s Pizzaria, 2400 12th Avenue South.

Taxis Limos and the fight for free markets in Nashville

Last night at Mafioza’s, long time Liberty on the Rocks member, Rod Williams, brought along Mr. Bokhari from the limousine service Metro Livery. It was great for Ali to share his story with our group; you may have heard about Metro Livery’s lawsuit against the City of Nashville for a city regulation that is holding up free enterprise in the taxi business and has set up a fixed price arrangement of the sort that we usually expect government officials to keep from happening as a consumer protection matter. The Institute for Justice is helping, unfortunately this isn’t the first time a Nashville business needed their help going up against the city administration. We hope this one will be just as successful and customers in Nashville will be rewarded with lower prices and competitive service!

You can find information about Metro Nashville’s interesting taxi vehicle inspections at Mr. Bokhari’s blog: Selective Enforcements. Until I looked over his blog I wasn’t aware that some horse carriages in the down town district have moved out of town to tourist cities where they can operate without hassle.

Hat’s off to Rod for getting the word out, he’s been posting information about where and when people could attend city meetings on this issue, watch our Facebook group for future notices. We always welcome input from any and all Liberty on the Rocks members. If you know of any situation where the freedom of individuals are being hampered or free enterprise is endangered post it on our page or email us!

Hear from Mr. Bokhari himself:

Protectionism in Nashville for Taxi and Limos

Last night we had a great meet up. It was good to see several new faces and a couple others who have been away for a while!

Rod Williams mentioned that a local measure on anti-free market forces is once again in play. Here are several of his posts on the issue and also how anyone can take action on this.

If you use cabs or limos in Nashville this affects you!  Please note it is a timely topic with the action coming up in the city council next week.
