There are so many of these that it boggles the mind anyone would still be
using the crusty old arguemtn of "if we cant charge up the wazoo for it
why bother?" The argument has been beaten down more often than Al Snow.

What should be asked is, "What new carrer will the people who live and die
by this old biscut move into?"

If Hayek where alive he could easily write The Fatal Conceit II - The
Errors Of Lamerism [1]
