The Devil Can Quote Scripture


At the bottom of the Lou Dobbs Tonight page today, "Tonight's Thought" is, incredibly, a quotation from Ludwig von Mises:

The common man is the sovereign consumer whose buying or abstention from buying ultimately determines what should be produced and in what quantity and quality.

Of course, ripped from context, it's doubtless intended here as an encouragement to consumers to boycott companies that "export America." Quick, cheap free energy: Someone hook a turbine up to von Mises' grave.

Tonight's guest, incidentally, will be Marc Andreessen, the man who launched a thousand browsers, defending outshoring—might be interesting.
