“It’s too easily forgotten that ‘the people’ are the market. The previous truth is a crucial one in consideration of what’s taken place in the U.S. and around the world since March of 2020. In locking ‘the people’ down, in taking away their freedom to live, work and operate their businesses as they wanted, politicians locked down the marketplace itself. That crisis followed the taking of freedom brings new meaning to redundant. The marketplace that is the people has come to mind a lot of late as studies start to reveal that the various coronavirus vaccines perhaps aren’t as effective as initially assumed. Rest assured that what you’re about to read is not a medical comment. There’s no medical knowledge with which to make comment. On the other hand, you will read why central planning never works, and why public/private partnerships similarly never work.” (08/31/21)
