The issue here is this relies on humans to be logical on those aspects. What we often have instead are wealthy people who calculate the maximum profit they can get before they die, which often involves doing stuff that hurts vast swaths of humans while they get no backlash, or bribe officials to weaken education programs which cost money up front but makes people easier to manipulate

Really the big issue is that the systems we currently use tie industry and government too closely together - It doesn't matter how hands off or hands on a government is if a few corrupt individuals can use the system to turn it into a fiefdom, no matter how little or how much government is
