To Owen's point, because buyers don't pay for routing slots they may not
really care if they buy 2 /24's or a /23.  If the "/24's" really are
cheaper, they'll buy them if they know their upstream will advertise /24's.

Call it what you want... I can point to examples of how market
does not necessarily result in a positive outcome for the people subjected
to the process.

Whether it is an invisible hand or an invisible fist is largely a matter of
you are in the equation when bad actors manipulate the market for their
own gains.
