自相矛盾的市场观

From my friend 薛兆丰’s “茅于轼老师的市场观常自相矛盾“,

“我当然敬重茅于轼老师,不仅因为他的风度和品格,更因为他在国内率先且不懈地推介市场经济的行动。但是,我也一直认为他对市场经济的阐释,经常有自相矛盾之处。

例如,他欣赏美国的“后院市场(yard sale)”,认为那些买卖有助促进交易双方的利益;但他见到一个妓女后,就得出“并非任何交易都有利于买卖双方的”的结论(见其《生活中的经济学》)。”

I often enjoy 兆丰’s article and think this is another interesting article.

Mind you, a paradoxical world is more fun isn’t it? :) In a mix of tongue in cheek, let me say this. I enjoy living in a paradoxical world where one can pick and choose things as one sees fit. For us regular 張三李四, it may be too much to expect us to enjoy living in a world of pure logic. May be the likes of Kurt Gödel can, but not many people can.

Plus in a paradoxical world, I can conclude pigs can fly, if and when I need it.

In fact, pigs can fly! QED. And they seem to enjoy it. Take a look.
