Thisssssssssssss.
 
"[I]t is not true that individuals are free to take markets or leave them. If access to the fruits of economic cooperation are available only through participation in markets, then while true that anyone can choose to be an outcast, one does so at great personal cost. How many of us living in a market economy are going to refuse to buy and sell? What the older, and in my view more important critique of markets amounts to, is an objection to the organization of economic cooperation in a way that is not only personally distasteful and demeaning – robs us of our “personhood” as Radin puts it – but unnecessarily sours human relations. It is a plea to others to come to their senses and join the search for a different way to organize economic cooperation. In terms Arrow surely understands, markets are a matter of social, not individual choice, and like all social institutions, markets provide incentives that promote some kinds of behavior and discourage others. In essence, what any economic institution does is reduce the transaction costs of engaging in certain kinds of economic behavior. But as we saw above, while markets reduce transaction costs for individuals seeking to buy and sell from one another, markets leave formidable transaction costs for external parties seeking to express their collective interest. In other words, markets are biased in favor of individual negotiations between two parties, and biased against collective negotiations among multiple parties, leading to predictable inefficiencies. Moreover, since the forms of interaction that are encouraged are mean spirited and hostile, and the forms of cooperation that are discouraged are respectful and empathetic, the detrimental effects on human relations are far from trivial."

Story
Tagline
I know we can do this.
Introduction
I'm Franklin,the scientific method and the potential it has to improve the world, brings me joy. I no longer have political leanings and am overwhelmingly disgusted with consumer culture as technology has made them irrelevant. I don't think societies problems have solutions in past ideologies, laws, regulation or religions but I have faith in you and your ability to change and grow. Why? Because you are a human being (presumably) and we are all capable of amazing things.
Bragging rights
none to speak of.
