Another day, another SSC post I like

Considerations on cost disease

Very many of our arguments should indeed be prefaced with
"Look, really our main problem is that all the most important things cost ten times as much as they used to for no reason, plus they seem to be going down in quality, and nobody knows why, and we're mostly just desperately flailing around looking for solutions here."

(of course I have my ideas about solutions; most of them are probably grouped under "simplify harder", "more taxes", and "freer markets"; but that's neither here nor there.)
