it shouldn't be difficult for you to argue the point here.

: BTW, all you forwarded was the naive notion that the CUSTOMER decides value, a concept Adam Smith dispatched around 1776.

: Don: And how did he do this?

: I know, Don. How about I spend about three hours getting the sources together and write my argument. Then after about 1,000 words you simply say---like you did to NJ in this post---'My whole family is working class, snot-nosed Harvard boy' as if that properly ends the debate.

Don: NJ suggested I was armed to protect myself from the working class. Since my family *is* working class I have no reason taking this BS from him. He goes to Harvard, and based upon his posts I suspect he is a snot-nosed undergraduate with rich parents. I did *not* respond this way to a well-reasoned argument, but to what amounted to an ad-hominism attack by NJ.

: Doesn't that sound like a good use of my time?

: Come to think of it, why am I bothering with you at all?

Don: Since you seem to think Adam Smith dispatched the idea with ease so long ago, it shouldn't be difficult for you to argue the point here. It ain't rocket science.
