“Correct. Nor will you see street lighting, police, etc. That is the essence of public goods. Revisit your economics text under “public goods” and “free-rider problem.”

Yes, but these are things people actually want and benefit from. Nobody but those with their hands are out for profit (and corruption) wants, or even understands, this new fiat currency.

You must be a banker.

Clean air is a public good, which benefits all people.

You once again confuse the issues of wanting something, benefiting from it, and willing to pay for it. Why don't you take a good advice and first think and study the issue a bit before you speak?

You must be a banker.

Congratulations on holding Marxist views while fancying yourself a conservative.

It was Marx who first advanced the idea that one's economic position in society determines his views. You faithfully follow him: since I disagree with your position (obviously correct, you think), the disagreement can be explained by my personal gain --- I must be a banker!. Previously , you defamed other people -- those same bankers -- without a shred of undestanding, and now you turned on me. You must've not even heard of Ten Commandments and serving as false witness, Mr. "Conservative."

It is because so-called conservatives ignorantly repeat the Leftist mantra, no longer know how their country functions, and no longer abide by Judeo-Christian morality that we have a Marxist in the White House.

Enjoy the presidency of your fellow Marxist, Nipfan.
