In your free market, less importent, might mean nonexistent. There very existence might be a product of regulation. Regulation which benifits them, I.e. multinational banks, but also the huge economic activity that depend in them... I.e. businesses which can get loans because of their existence but wouldn't and don't have access to such loans in other regulatory environments that make operating such institutions impossible. There is a reason some countries have more cheep credit than others. And access to cheep credit increases economic activity and innovation.

In the scramble to make the GOP more diverse, a lot of people are looking at Asian Americans, whom many believe are a natural constituency for the party. I would love it if Asian Americans converted en masse to the Republican Party, but the challenge for Republicans is harder than many appreciate.

President Obama did spectacularly well with Asian Americans, garnering nearly three-quarters of their vote. This runs counter to a lot of conventional wisdom on both the left and the right. On average, Asian American family income is higher and poverty is lower than it is for non-Latino whites....
