WEEKEND SPECIAL: DENNY DIMWIT RETURNS
For first time visitors, it is the policy of this blog to cover fairly serious issues during the week. Weekends, however, are reserved for the commentaries of various animals in and around Goat Rope Farm.
The views expressed by these animals are not necessarily those of the Goat Rope staff.
This weekend we once again welcome bantam rooster and noted free market economist Dr. Denton "Denny" Dimwit. Dr. Dimwit is director of the Goat Rope Farm Public Policy Foundation, a member of many conservative and libertarian think tanks, and a senior economic advisor to the Bush administration. It is often Dr. Dimwit's practice to comment on the previous week's posts.
We hope that by including features such as this we are promoting an appreciation of (bio) diverse viewpoints, promoting a climate of deep listening and profound mutual respect, and reducing the tragic polarization of our times.
THE DIMWIT DISPATCH
Crudawackadingdong! Where do you guys get the jibberish you put in this blog anyway? I've heard more intelligent conversations at the goat pen!
And who's this guy you've been writing about this week? He obviously doesn't understand anything about the market.
What's this blessed are the poor stuff anyway? The poor aren't blessed--they're losers! And this stuff about the first being last and the last being first--that's just nuts! What about incentives?
Doesn't that guy understand that the whole kingdom thing would distort market outcomes?
Let me explain how it really works. I can do it scientificocalculostatistically. Check out the picture. Pretty nice, huh? The little handsome guy is me. Pretty sharp, right! And you see what's beside me? That BIG hen? Well, guess what--she's with me! That's what I'm talking about. If the last think they're going to be first around here, they're gonna have to deal with me!
That's the beauty of the market.
And that's the truth. You bet your cloaca.
