    The concept of regulating the markets really depends on science. It's the science (YMMV) of economics that tells us, for example, that some people will be unemployed at all times in a capitalist society. It tells us that there will be cyclic ups and downs in the economy. It says that there will be jobs offered that don't pay the rent.

    If you believe in science then you'd be eventually forced to believe in unemployment compensation, deficit spending, and the minimum wage. If you don't find those palatable, then it's going to be awfully hard to believe in science.
