Markets to Americans Are Like Water to a Fish

Posted By Don Boudreaux On November 27, 2008 @ 7:22 am In Complexity & Emergence,The Economy | Comments Disabled

In my latest column in the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review [1], I argue that government grows not because markets fail, but because markets succeed so well yet so silently,  Here’s a paragraph:

In modern America, the market’s bounty is assumed always to be there, as if it emerges naturally from the soil, available for us to “redistribute” as we wish.

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone.
