So Much For 'Supply and Demand'

Gas prices are rising sharply, even though America has never had so much gasoline waiting to be sold.

Could we stop pretending this is a market-driven economy? Our economy is driven by the men who rule it and, as long as they represent criminal cartels, we the people will be the losers.

There's nothing wrong with saying a democratic government should control the economy and rig the game to benefit the people the government represents. In fact, under the circumstances, there's a lot that's right about that. It's time for some changes around here.
