"Imagine if, instead of meeting Robinson Crusoe, Friday met another Kalinago Indian just like himself named 'Saturday.' Friday and Saturday have identical skills, and identical resources at their disposal. Furthermore, the course of events never changes this. Friday and Saturday each produce the same exact goods for the same exact purposes. They would, at all times, have the exact wants, and the exact same means to provide those wants. They would be of no ongoing use to each other." (11/10/11)
