“The essential quality of a free economy is that it cannot be planned. It leaves the solution of problems to the inspiration of the individuals in the untrammeled population. When something approaching a free economy has existed, it has always worked better than the schemes of any planners.”     Thomas H. Barber

Quote Of The Day #2

by Brad Warbiany

Okay, Doug’s already done one quote about the Obama Nobel, but I just can’t resist this:

There’s a line in the movie Dangerous Liaisons to the effect that one does not applaud the tenor for clearing his throat.

I was reminded of it when I heard about President Barack Obama’s Nobel Peace Prize.

Just about says it all…
