A wonderful read from Mr. Jeffrey Tucker. He explains how markets work, how the customer is king in a free market. And most importantly of all, how we take it all for granted.
The Miracle at Mon Ami Gabi – Laissez-Faire Bookstore: Who is holding a gun to people’s heads to make all this happen? The answer is no one. Kings of old would display their wealth through their dining habits and make ostentatious display of the number of people who served them. Today, we are all kings. But we are even better off, with more selection between dishes and the number of places we can eat. We coerce no one. Our servants beg for the chance to wait on us and work themselves to the point of total exhaustion.
