Well, I'm sure if the market agreed, it would be able to make a profit. Are you saying you know better than the market?In my humble opinion, manned space exploration is essential to the long term prosperity and security of the United States. The "long term" nature of such a venture prohibits profit-oriented models from effectively assuming the responsibility for space exploration.
So the market has its limitations when it's something you find important? What a convenient theory for you!Yes, the free market has its limitations, or haven't you taken an economics course?
I wonder what would have happened if we left the A-bomb to the free market...
I have an extremely good grasp of economic theory and how you're breaking the liberal free market theory (well, what you would call conservative economic theory), by insisting that the market doesn't know what it's doing and we should tax people because the government knows better.Name-calling and childish labeling is all you got. Is there someone with at least a cursory understanding of basic economics and science that I can discuss this issue with?
