Question for Sen. Hillary Clinton

At The Manufacturing Institute, we often undertake research projects dealing with the manufacturing economy and what strengthens it and what weakens it. I’m always interested in new perspectives.

Sen. Hillary Clinton is quoted in today’s news with the following statement that I find intriguing:

There is no greater force for economic growth than free markets. But markets work best with rules that promote our values, protect our workers and give all people a chance to succeed,” she said.

I’m genuinely interested to know if there is a report or study that corroborates her statement that markets work best with the kind of rules she cites. Maybe there are quite a few. I’m interested in the sources for that statement and presume others are too. If you can recommend that report, we’d all be interested. Thanks, readers.
