Lessons in Capitalism

This is why I fear unrestricted capitalism less than I fear government control of the economy. Short-term thinking will always catch you in the end if people are given a choice. Compare this result with efforts to clean up a dysfunctional government bureaucracy, like, say, HUD or NASA or Traverse City.

I don't recall ever buying anything at a Circuit City. I don't buy much at Best Buy either, but what little time I have spent in their stores (I tend to buy things online because I generally know what I want) has been pleasant enough. Maybe I'll try to get a job there. Sounds like they want sales people that actually know something.
