notes on government, sports and popular culture
Cone weighs a bit
on FCC chairman Michael Powell. Coincidentally, Reason online
just did a one-on-one (well, a three-on-one) with chairman Powell.
Mind you, this interview is more about the intricacies of the telecommunications industry than indecency issues.
When asked to define his politics, Powell replied:
"I consider myself moderate, slightly left of center. It depends on the issue. I'm a big believer in individual entrepreneurship and innovation. I think American capitalism is the finest economic system ever invented. It has crushed- not beaten, crushed- every alternative deployed in the history of the world, and we should be proud of it instead of embarrassed by it."
