28 Aug

friedmanThe political principle that underlies the market mechanism is unanimity. In an ideal free market resting on private property, no individual can coerce any other, all cooperation is voluntary, all parties to such cooperation benefit or they need not participate.

    I’m impressed, I need to say. Really not often do I encounter a weblog that’s both educative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you may have hit the nail on the head. Your idea is excellent; the problem is something that not enough individuals are talking intelligently about. I am very glad that I stumbled throughout this in my seek for something relating to this.
