If it weren’t for black market dealins, I’d be screwed.
I’m looking for a deal on capsized canoes.
I’m heading for Tampa to go fishing. I’m paying 25% less for cash, told where to sell my fish for a profit, will use that to take a second trip out and eventually go home. Life might get good, without these government turds.
Lots of cash day work here in California going on.
Our millions of California illegals paid thus.
Saves those hiring big bucks.
Allows the cash-payment workers to claim lower income so to get the govt freebies too.
Before the existence of the IRS, one could argue the entire economy was “black market”. I believe the entire article is based on a false premise, though I agree that when a lot of people go galt (it would fit within the author’s definition of “black market”) it does mean we have a problem.
