Bonus Quotation of the Day…

… is from page 159 of Rainer Zitelmann’s 2019 book, The Power of Capitalism:

Any proponent of a system that allows the state to interfere in economic affairs wherever and whenever it pleases – rather than confining the role of government to creating a legal framework for free competition, safeguarding private property and providing the required infrastructure – has not understood what market economics means. Any self-professed ‘supporter of the free market’ who gives precedence to politics over economics and harbours a profound distrust of the spontaneous forces of the market has failed to grasp the essence of this economic system.
