From CBS, New York

“As you sit down to dinner, this story illustrates eating out like you have never experienced before. We are talking about super-secret, illegal dining experiences hosted in homes. CBS 2 investigative reporter Tamara Leitner went undercover to see firsthand how this underground world works.”

Greg- How bizarre that serving up dinner in your own home and asking people to pay you for the experience is a punishable crime. While this is considered a danger to the public, our high streets and shopping malls abound with outlets serving up all manner of unlabelled foods, much of it recognized as damaging to health. The State of Business, chapter 20:

‘Little resembling a free market remains in most of those major nations that built their greatness on the free market and then regulated it out of reach to those without degrees, certificates, and bank loans. Letting your child go out on the street selling lemonade today (as I did when a boy) might easily result in the toddler being taken into care. We are not free to turn our home into a restaurant or herbal treatment clinic, and require a license or permit to sell anything in a public place. Where a semblance of the free market survives, it thrives, in farmers markets and flea markets, car boot and yard sales, eBay and Craigslist and Silk Road.
