    every time the subject turns to economics, especially matters of "supply and demand".

    They want you to believe that corporations are a force of nature, instead of entities that are entirely designed, created, organized and controlled by humans. They want you to believe that the best way to improve the game is to throw away the rulebook, remove the referees, erase the field and goal lines, and just let everybody have at each other.

    I think that's commonly known as a "barroom brawl", and only ends when everything is wrecked or one side is beaten to a bloody pulp or the sheriff (or somebody who is a Voice of Authority) steps in and makes them all stop.
