Next, please explain to me how a publicly funded, non-profit agency (such as the proposed cold storage) can even remotely be considered part of the "free market"? Mr. Wright, in the "free market" people are forced to pay taxes, buy their own property, supply their own capital etc.,etc.
As for government "subsidizing" corporate growth, I think you may have it backwards. In my universe corporate growth subsidizes government (ever increasingly so) along with the average taxpayer. So logically, if you limit or abolish taxation you encourage corporate and personal income growth. But alas, government growth would suffer (how many trillion in the hole are we now?). The only competition "thing" going on is the competition among the "fierce, proud, independent" Alaskan communities for public monies.
I guess there is a precedent for Mr. Wright's economic universe. It was once run by a man named Benito Mussolini. Let's see... it had something to do with government control of industry.
