Quote of the Day II

"It is difficult to get a man to understand something when his salary depends upon his not understanding it."

~Upton Sinclair

A few examples come to mind: unionized public school teachers and school choice/vouchers, UAW workers and globalization, protectionist U.S. sugar beet farmers and the proven benefits of free trade, existing banks and Wal-Mart's pro-consumer attempt to enter banking, etc. Any other suggestions?

How 'bout that. A free-market thinker quoting a socialist!

My salary isn't really affected by being free-market or socialist. I could become a socialist tomorrow and my salary would remain the same.
