This was a collaborative work, and the authors worked hard (!) to find
as much common ground as possible.
After reading through the full paper, you would probably be inclined
to revise that to "a paper with Tom Vest's name on it conclude that
'An approved, well-functioning market is preferable to *many* but not
Anyway, that's the way I actually did conclude. But that should come
as no surprise, as that's perfectly consistent with what I've been
writing here all along. I am not averse to markets, either in general
or in the vast majority of specific instances; I just have reasons to
doubt that they'll work -- much less be "well-functioning" -- in
*this* specific context.
I am finalizing a bunch of things to put online (the long promised
"other shoe" ++) over the next day or two. There's a link in the
paper, but I'll ping you directly when the materials are actually up.
