The Pro-Commerce Constitutional Tradition

I'm often sort of meh about Ramesh Ponnuru's columns, but "The Supreme Court Isn't Pro-Business, But It Ought To Be" is an exception:

The problem with the conservative defense of the Roberts court is that it’s too defensive. The court ought to be pro- business. It shouldn’t twist the law to serve the interests of corporations. But there’s no getting around the fact that the promotion of commerce -- and particularly its protection from politicians in the states who would exploit or block it -- was a major reason we replaced the Articles of Confederation with the Constitution in the first place.
