    A while back I created the Wikipedia entry for the Forced Rider problem. Some idiots butchered it. After I created the entry I added a link to it in the entry for the Free-rider problem. Today I noticed that some idiot removed the link from that page. The reason they gave is, "Forced Rider isn't a concept in economics, it's libertarian exclusively." I'd undo the idiot's edit but the idiots banned me from Wikipedia. So hopefully one of you will undo the idiot's edit. To be clear... it takes a special kind of idiot to think that the free-rider problem is an economic concept but the forced-rider problem is not. Free-rider problem: allocation < valuation Forced-rider problem: allocation > valuation

    Each department should keep track of all the relevant payment info... 1. Student name 2. Tax payment amount 3. Date of payment So if Sergio loses his tax receipts for the last month... then Aiden can simply ask each department how much Sergio has paid them in the past month. Then Aiden would compare Sergio's payments with his compensations in order to ensure that he has been paying his fair share. Ideally the departments would also use the data to share important insights. Such as... which department has received the most revenue? And... which student has allocated the most taxes to the Department of Books? And... which student has paid the largest total amount of taxes?

    My friend Michelle teaches a 4th grade public school class of 30 students. She recently started applying my ideal government to her class... 1. voting is replaced with spending (coasianism) 2. kids can choose where their taxes go (pragmatarianism) Michelle had recently given all the spare coins around her house to some kid to go on a trip. So I looked around my house, found 700 pennies and gave them to Michelle. She gave each of her students 20 pennies and they used the pennies to decide which book to read. Here's the process... Step 1 - Each student writes down on a valuation form their… 1. name

    I'll make sure to get your blog out there as much as possible...after all, it would suck for you to be a one man army. And two is better than one.
