Jobs and Unemployment


Libertarians supports capitalism and free market solutions to job creation

Maine needs a plan to encourage new businesses to move here. We can achieve this with less bureaucracy and intervention from city, county, state and the federal governments.

Libertarians believe that reducing the size and scope of government is the best way to improve the job market. Government cannot allocate resources as effectively as market forces, so even programs explicitly designed to reduce unemployment are likely to be counter-productive. Each high paying government job exists at the expense of every private sector job. The result is less private sector investment, smaller margins, and a poor environment for business. The best way to improve the labor market is by reducing the barriers erected by government. This includes lowering taxes, reducing or eliminating business license requirements, provide easier access to capital and scaling back crippling or expensive regulation.
