recalling the following Nobel Prizes

There's a simple solution to the tragedy of the commons: let someone own them and charge for access. This is the only real way to overcome it. And you'll never see it endorsed by any greenies because implicit in it is that there is an optimal level of pollution people will tolerate. But again, empirically you get market baseed views justified. The government claims ownership and/or thwarts attempts at extending property rights into these areas, the predicted result is overuse, which is exactly what happens. Which people then blame on the free market...

I about fell out of my chair when I read that Milton Friedman's Nobel Prize was going to be revoked...and then I realized that it was satirical, but still it wouldn't suprise me. Friedman is one of my heroes.

After Al Gore received the prize over Ira Sendler (who saved thousands of children), I lost all respect for those who decide who gets it.

l want to know when are they actually going to allow and use most of the fantastic inventions instead of holding them back so our lives remain mediocre one example is Nikola tesla his invention of wireless power just like we get wireless communication was kept quiet because it was not commercially viable for fat greedy capitalists. His final 30 years of research was banned and kept hidden by the U.S government.
