P.J. O'Rourke on Economics

Excerpted from Don't Vote - It Just Encourages the Bastards:

"The free market is not a creed or an ideology that political conservatives, libertarians, and Ayn Rand acolytes want Americans to take on faith. The free market is simply a measurement. The free-market tells us what people are willing to pay for a given thing at a given moment. That's all the free market does. The free market is a bathroom scale. We may not like what we see when we step on the bathroom scale, but we can't pass a law making ourselves weigh 165. Liberals and leftists think we can."

P.J. O'Rourke's new book can be purchased here. He can be seen live and in person in Washington D.C. on Wednesday November 3, 2010. Oh, and it's absolutely free. For more information about this event click here.
