Basic supply and demand laws don't apply huh?
Limiting productive output huh?
Actually, I don't mind a bit of market regulation, and like manpower planning it can lead to efficiencies which might otherwise be unavailable
because the regulators have useful information that is not available to the individual producer.
But, as a rule, for a supposedly free enterprise country which lets markets speak for themselves, the US has more tarriffs and more insane protections
than any other economy in the world. Not only that, but the application of them is hypocritical to the Nth degree.
