“Reality is that which, when you stop believing in it, does not go away” – Philip K. Dick.

Although I know you aren’t explicitly endorsing that Pandora’s box of unintended consequences and moral hazards Wikipedia certainly does so.

I knew those all those economists were full of shit.


#9

Correct. But I do love those old Seinfeld episodes.
