The NY Times "article" is interesting (if somewhat late) if only because of its links to the Law Review articles. Dan, your article was really, really cogent!

I smirked, because the article illustrated my two favorite adages about capitalism:

* A fair trade is one in which neither party walks away satisfied.
* Capitalism means doing the least amount of work for the most amount of money.

Daniel, your paper is excellent! Congratulations on inclusion in the Law Review publication and recognition by the NY Times!
