Iron Man vs. Captain America: Who's Right?
September 6, 2018
In Captain America: Civil War, the main conflict is not just a fist fight between Tony Stark and Steve Rogers.
It's a battle of ideas.
Should the members of the Avengers superhero team remain free to decide when and how to use their powers in defense of others, or should they be registered and controlled by government?
To find out who's right, we first have to think about how government decision-making actually takes place. And the best way to think about that question is to apply economic analysis to politics using a framework called "Public Choice."
