I don't have a lot of time today, but I have to single out one poster who has changed my thinking on a topic/issue, Empty Purnata.
I've always prided myself on my knowledge of economic systems and their effect on the people living within and outside of them. But E.P. has challenged my economic belief system, regarding capitalism as the "best" alternative in practice [rather than theory], and made me seek more information on "Market Socialism."
But others have challenged my thinking as well and I see that as a good thing; it provides the opportunity for growth. I will be back later to point those folk out.
