No more exporting acetone!!

Considering the many applications for the use of acetone, the efficacy of the product and its necessity in terms of the daily lives of virtually every American------I mean, it's the best nail polish remover, paint thinner, etc., and, by the way, its industrial use is off the charts, and it's huge in terms of the production of other chemicals------I propose that Washington immediately ban Dow Chemical from exporting acetone to other nations. By limiting the global market for acetone the price would surely decline, saving the U.S. consumer, well, a lot of money, and boosting the U.S. economy in the process.

Ludicrous? Of course. Is it any more ludicrous than a push by Dow Chemical (the Dow Chemical that does two-thirds of its business outside the U.S.) to ban the exporting of U.S. natural gas would be? Of course not. Well, that's what's occurring as I type.
