The Free Market Foundation's Submission on the Licensing of Business Bill 2013
Economic growth and licensing
Commenting on the substance only of the proposed Licensing of Businesses Bill does not adequately deal with the economic consequences of the implementation of such laws.
Whatever the proposed purpose might be, there is no doubt that licensing will impact negatively on the economy and most particularly on the poorest people in the country.
The proposed licensing laws run directly counter to the policies that are necessary to bring about growth, employment and a reduction in poverty.
