By trying to pick and choose winners and losers in the marketplace, the government distorts the market and creates inefficiencies.

I'm curious: do you feel the same way about the minimum wage? Child labor laws? Requirements that new cars have seat belts and airbags? Do all of these create inefficiencies in the marketplace?

Tips For Taking Your Laptop Into and Out of the US? 940

casualsax3 writes "I'm going to be taking a week long round trip from NYC to Puerto Vallarta Mexico sometime next month, and I was planning on taking my laptop with me. I'll probably want to rip a few movies and albums to the drive in order to keep busy on the flight. More important though, is that I'm also going to be taking pictures while I'm there, and storing them on the laptop. With everything in the news, I'm concerned that I'll have to show someone around the internals of my laptop coming back into the US. The pictures are potentially what upsets me the most, as I feel it's an incredible violation of my privacy. Do I actually need to worry about this? If so, should I go about hiding everything? I've heard good things about Truecrypt. Is it worth looking into or am I being overly paranoid?"
