oh yeah, and concerning that picture of a farmer spending all his money on hookers not farm equipment:
an Austrian would argue that it is okay for a farmer to be doing that because markets shift towards where they should be
that is, if markets wanted tons of strippers and no food, that’s where it would go
so yeah, suck my dick haters
What’s your point? Sounds like a straw man argument.
This guy is so incredibly brain dead. “If the markets wanted strippers instead of food, that’s where it would go.” Really? You *really* think if you open the markets that somehow, people will magically suddenly forget that they need food to survive? Do you really consider society to be that fucking incapable of sustaining itself? That’s pretty much what I’m hearing right now.
people can’t understand hypotheticals
How exactly is that a hypothetical…to anything? What’s your big example? “If the market wants more strippers than it does toothpaste, that’s what’ll happen. If the market wants more strippers than cars, that’s what’ll happen.” Like what’s your point? Do you really think that most rational people will pick a stripper over brushing their own teeth? Or that it should actually matter to you what the fuck people do on their own time? JFC, Keynesians. Y’all baffle me.
>yfw there’s no such things as “rational”
It’s hilarious that people take your hypothetical and assume that’s were you think markets will go. Hint: NO ONE KNOWS WHERE MARKETS WILL GO! If we did, we would completely control our economy and limit the busts while replicating the booms. We’d have perpetual growth with relatively no effort. But we don’t because markets are organic.
If he said the market might shift from food to cocaine or from food to urine, it would still be as correct as saying the market would shift from hookers to food.
So many idiots.
