        it was assinine from the beginning placing a dollar value on all decisions. had a great time wit it in the 80's when I took on a professor and one of Rhenquist's former clerks on why we should legalize drugs using Posner's theory whenever he would come back to moral or  arguments I would ask him to justify them economically. Posner while a brilliant man is no fucking genius. His ideas are no better than others when questioned. Scalia and the uncle Thomas would differ, fuck them.
