On the other hand, Left proposes that free markets should not be absolute.
This goes the same in privatization. Agencies should have a properly regulate free markets and privatization. Unregulated free markets tend to be monopolized and competition ends. Also, there should be the guidance of the government as anti-trust regulation.
Wealth trickles down in the Right perspective. It all boils from the investments made by the wealthy. According to Sen. Phil Gramm “I never was given any job by a poor man”.
