2. Finally. And of course Robin is completely correct. And, that most people think he’s not is heartening. It is the same reason the efficient market theory is going to make me rich.

“My friend Dave…would pour soda out of the cans and bottles in his parents’ house so that he could get the cash for the deposit and/or recycling…Note that Dave wasn’t really doing anything wrong (unless his parents were prescient enough to anticipate and regulate the behavior)”

Of course he was doing something wrong. He was destroying value. Where do economists get this mentality? The older I get, the more I believe Objectivism is righter than bullshonomics, aka economics careerism.
