This link takes you to an example of how not to govern.
This does not work. It never has. Every time it has been tried, terrible results have been recorded in textbooks, documentaries, and academic journals. It's so ingrained in our national memory that no politician alive in the 1970's will suggest it.
Well...unless.... Look, here is a perfect litmus test for a politician. If they ever suggest setting price controls on consumer goods then either they are very ignorant or they hope (think) you are. Yes, yes we already have price controls on labor (minimum wage). But, at least they haven't told Company X not to charge above $3.00 for eggs...not in the past 30 years anyway.
