Default Re: Booze and Money (Tim Fernholz & Megan McArdle)

It get a little old how much it is asserted that humility in what is knowable means we should do nothing. It's like there is some weighting function in conservatives that weights any harm done by the state 100 times more then any harm done by the market. I suppose you could reply with a rejoinder the same weighting function exists among the left but it weights harm done by private individuals more then the state. This is true I suppose, but that one is only 20 instead of a 100. :/
