Homma tosin leviää käsiin, sillä Tennesseen palokunta ei ollut yksityinen. Luettuani annoksen Ironmitressiä päätin tsekata fatkoja netistä.
Tässä vaiheessa Takkirauta varmaan sanoisi "hupsista". Itse en sitä tee sillä pidän sitä erittäin ärsyttävänä.
Factually, this was a government fire department. The argument should end right there. This situation is a result of the state, not the market. Unfortunately, it won't end there. A lot of left-liberal media elites, statists, and left-wing bloggers have been using this tragic situation as an excuse to attack the free market and libertarians in general.
The idea that the free market would lead to this outcome is silly. According to all accounts the homeowner offered to pay the fee on the spot. He even offered to pay more than the fee and cover all costs associated with putting out the fire. What for-profit company would sit there and refuse to extend their services to a potential customer begging to give them his money? Even on the hampered market we live in now, no company operates like this. Only the state operates like this.
The fire chief could not take the homeowner up on his offer to pay because the chief is a part of a bureaucratic chain of command that cannot adjust to new situations. He cannot on his own make the decision to take the money and put the fire out. He has superiors to report to.1. Syytä markkinoita valtion virheistä
