Even though current theories of economics perfectly describe the 
behaviors of individuals and companies regarding address assignment and 
allocation?  Ted, anyone who has read this list for more than a week 
knows that Milton and Tom disagree fundamentally on a number of points.  
Learned people do that.  That gives us the opportunity to listen to the 
arguments, shrill though they might be at times, use our heads, and 
decide for ourselves.  Any economist of any value could have predicted 
our current situation, given the current policies.  We have not, until 
recently, invited them to the table to listen.  You are suggesting that 
we now disinvite them?
