      I find the two can co-exist quite happily in a life, and make a nice menage a trois with bourbon 🙂

    Great to see you making it to the regular roster, I’ve enjoyed all of your guest posts and comments thoroughly.

    On a side note, as a fellow “Ryan B.”, I’m very thankful you’re going to your full last name so I can stop being confused as to how I changed logins and made those comments that are eerily like what I think, but not exactly, all the time. 😉Report

    Serious question: “markets are most useful after we’ve defined our goals.” was also the position of Mussolini on markets. Mussolini’s goals were probably not the same as yours (I don’t think you’re interested in recreating the Roman Empire), but how do you square this view that markets should be the slaves to defined goals with democracy?Report
