My point was that your whole argument for running the marathon seems to be economic. And day after day you come here and espouse the virtues of the Austrian School, which is so friggin great that no major country in the world has ever adopted it.

Call me crazy. Call me a bleeding heart. Really don't care. I'm just not a subscriber of your economic newsletter...
