Too “Complex”?

The problem is not that supply and demand is such a complex explanation. The problem is that supply and demand is not an emotionally satisfying explanation. For that, you need melodrama, heroes and villains.

It is clear that many people prefer to blame President Bush. Others prefer to blame the oil companies, who have long been the favorite villains of the left.

Thomas Sowell

“As we must account for every idle word,

so must we account for every idle silence.”

— Benjamin Franklin
