Blog Credo

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

This Is An Excellent Idea

This won't win elections or anything, but this is what good governance looks like.  We have a stupid method of selling cars in this country. I have never had a pleasurable experience buying a car, only less unpleasant ones.

The idea of "made to order" - or more broadly for cars - is a really good one.  It would probably lead to MORE sales, as both the price of cars comes down and the experience becomes less a miserable, haggling trial.

But most car salesman are the sort of Babbitt-esque Chamber of Commerce Republicans who see Obamacare as a restraint on trade, but benefit from monopolistic protectionist laws.
