t is simple. We pass laws insisting the consumer must buy turnips from a licensed vender. We then sell a few licenses to a handful of venders at a high price. He then got to the producer and demands a cut for peddling his turnips. He also jacks up the turnip price to make a good profit. Over time, he develops expensive tastes and convinces himself that those turnips are valuable and up goes the prices and down goes the cost.
