Una d’aquelles coses que sempre he pensat però mai no he sabut expressar. Es exactament això el que passa en aquest país, per exemple, amb els petits comerciants, que obtenen una protecció dels seus interessos concrets i materials que va en contra dels interessos de la immensa majoria de consumidors, massa dispersos com ni per pensar-hi d’oposar resistència.

M’apunt la referència del llibre d’Olson per llegir-lo.

Si no coneixeu el blog d’Eric S. Raymond, vos el recoman.
