"Myths of the 1 Percent: What Puts Some People at the Top", J. Rothwell, NYT,  November 24, 2017.  Those working in sectors protected from competition by government policy continuously earn super-profits and capture wealth faster than everyone else. 

Edmund Phelps, New York Review of Books, "What is Wrong with the West's Economies?", August 2015. Utilitarian and Rawlsian philosophies as manifested in policy in the modern welfare state has reduced self-determination, entrepreneurship and human creativity.   

"Monopoly Isn't Always What We Think It Is", J.R. Rogers, Law & Liberty, November 2018.  If there are no barriers to entry, there is no monopoly. And who best to limit competition but the state with it's monopoloy on legal coercion.

For those interested in both theology and political economy, here is a classic piece, "Market as God" by Harvey Cox in the Atlantic (1999), recently (early 2018) circulated by Anwar Shaikh at the New School for Social Research. Where Cox has it wrong though is that bailouts are not a 'market correction', a market correction is allowing bancrupt assets to go bancrupt.
