Crimping Entrepreneurship: The Attack on Motor Carrier Sponsored Equipment Acquisition Programs

The article examines how and why legislation and regulation relating to equipment acquisition may preclude an individual from becoming an independent business person, a dream held by many despite knowledge of financial risk. The author argues that, unless a law is violated, government should not determine what is good or bad for individuals who establish or operate businesses, including penalizing individuals and motor carriers who choose to participate in carrier sponsored programs. The author argues that such programs, which are bona fide, are advantageous to lessees and economically sound, and that political crimping of such programs should be stopped.
