"The political classes learned nothing from doubling and tripling cigarette taxes. The higher the tobacco tax went the more people bought from the black market (or free market as libertarians rightly call it.) ... Now start imaging gypsy gasoline trucks or fly-by-night gas peddlers set up in abandoned gas stations for two or three days who move on before the gov goons catch on. What better way to teach people real economics than thriving black markets on everything?" (04/04/11)
