Handouts versus property rights

Check out the short video below poking fun at all the wasteful and counterproductive spending in the coronavirus relief bill approved by the Congress last month. For my part, this parody makes a deeper point: instead of enacting another round of bailouts, why don’t we return to our nation’s first principles and take a property-rights approach to the current pandemic? I outline precisely such an approach in my Mercatus Center op-ed, which was published yesterday.
