Businesses can simply choose to not spend. If they can't keep up with the Joneses, they shouldn't try.
Salary caps? Salary floors? Damn ridiculous.
If you're not toronto, your player expenditures increase your gate if they help your team win. So you can't simply just choose not to spend in the long run. Otherwise you're just looking at the Oilers when they used to develop players and then immediately give them up to another franchise.
Besides, 'free-market' isn't all it's cracked up to be. Most of the English Premier League is losing money. Even UEFA is embracing 'fiscal responsibility'.
