The free-enterprise method of marketing real estate in the United States works well for everyone involved: buyers, sellers and brokers.Sometimes it takes a unique experience to really appreciate the marketing system we enjoy. That's the view of Realtor Barbara Hill, an owner-partner in an active brokerage business.She recently had such an experience. It involved working with a knowledge-thirsty, young entrepreneur from a republic of what was the Soviet Union.Zetta Iszhanove, a 32-year-old university professor from the city of Alma-Ata in the Republic of Kazakhstan, spent most of a two-week period with Ms. Hill, observing her real estate brokerage operation.

I absolutely support unions when it is appropriate, and I would fight for union representation when it's appropriate. What I disagree with is the concept of "union shops" where all employees must pay dues whether they belong to the union or not ( "Paying one's dues," Jan. 23). Free enterprise should be on both sides of the economy. If a union is appropriate, then let there be a union. But that doesn't mean that it is appropriate for all the workers within the designated work force.

"If that's the case, I'll pull it."

Juan David Tapia ++ and Yacir Barrero think they're completely uncool.The two kids, whose parents each make salaries of less than $7 a month, don't want what the government store offers."Do you have Nikes?" Juan asks a foreigner walking past. "Can you give them to us?"

America is at its best when our guiding principles of free enterprise and giving people a helping hand work together. The free enterprise system created our national wealth and employment opportunities. However, free enterprise also eliminated 3 million American jobs in the 2000s while creating 2.4 million new jobs overseas. Meanwhile, Apple set new records for "legal" tax evasion. The free enterprise system is focused on creating jobs for minimum wages, not necessarily in the U.S. That implies that the best opportunities for creating jobs are in the public sector.

We look for free enterprise to create our national wealth and employment opportunities. However, free enterprise eliminated 3 million jobs in the 2000's while creating 2.4 million jobs overseas. Those lost jobs are not coming back. Both Barack Obama and Mitt Romney agree that the today's principal economic problem is jobs and that the nation's infrastructure needs repair. Repairing a leaking roof is not a partisan issue. The nation's infrastructure is in crisis, and we need action now to rebuild and maintain the nation's port, road, bridge, water, sewage treatment, rail, and air systems.

I have followed with interest The Sun's recent coverage of the election, but one key fact has been underemphasized in your reporting. Please remind your readers that President Barack Obama has had four years to dig us out of the economic slump and has not done so. In fact, President Obama's "spend now, pay later" policies have worsened the recession. Mr. Obama has brought us ever-increasing debt and sky-high unemployment. Mitt Romney has spent his life in business. Mr. Romney understands that the road to recovery is to unleash the spirit of American free enterprise.

CHARLES P. McCormick was a revolutionary in a business suit.When he took over the family's Baltimore spice and extract business in 1932, he decided to treat employees as if they were partners. Colleagues thought he was out of his mind. Standard management practice of the day was to view workers as machines -- to be run until they broke down.At the height of the Depression, C. P. McCormick startled the local business community. While others were cutting pay and laying off employees, he handed workers a 10 percent raise and shortened the work week from 56 to 46 hours.
