"The Boston Red Sox are following our politicians’ lead, enacting paternalistic market restrictions that defy basic economic principles. The team announced a new Digital Ticket Initiative, which will require upper-bleacher patrons to swipe at the gate the credit card they used to purchase the tickets, effectively killing the secondary ticket market for those seats."
