This is actually all fairly useful. But that is not the reason I am doing it.
The reason I am doing it is because certain people in the property school have totally pissed me off too many times and I wish to demonstrate that, under their own terms, they are total losers. In policy terms, this is the equivalent of saying: "You're not the real free market person. I'm the real free market person. You all are a bunch of command-and-control Big Government Socialist wankers who suckle at the teat of government protected monopoly rents. Losers."
So, is it morally wrong to have a useful economic insight because one wishes to be a total immature dickweed? And, if it's wrong, I don't want to be right.
