        Why you should buy a 5 year car and sell it after 10 years
        \_ Not every kind of failure can be measured by maintenance cost.
           Complete engine failure is more costly than brake-line leakage, but
           is less likely to kill you.

        Most people think Free Market is not fine the way it is
        and needs some adjustment/tuning.
        \_ Why don't you move to France, you Cheese Eating Surrender Monkey?
        \_ Tuning in their favor no doubt.
           \_ obviously. the emotion is not too different than that
              that which fueled the French revolution
              \_ I mean "tuned in their own favor" versus "for the common
                 good". I think the French Revolution was more of the latter.
                 \_ who determines that? the people who revolt or
                    the people who were revolted? Do you give each
                    individual an equal weight?
                    \_ The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few.
                       However, I think that these people who think the
                       free market needs tuning are mostly thinking about
                       themselves and not the common good.
                       \_ don't you think most people in this world (e.g.
                          most are 3rd world countries) think about
                          themselves much more than they think about
                          others? Have you been to China and Brazil?
                          \_ Yes, I do think so, which is why I think the
                             results of the poll are meaningless to use
                             as a guideline to set economic policy.
