"You argue it with Holcomb."

"There's no use arguing with that bird. He's so thickheaded, you could push a stick of dynamite right up his nostrils, set it off, and the guy wouldn't even sneeze."

"Markets and the Quality of Life"

An Interview With Randall G. Holcombe (1998)

Q: What attracted you to economics in the first place?

HOLCOMBE: It offers a simple, palatable theoretical structure. And with theory, so much of the workings of the world are revealed to you. Immediately I loved the power of pure theory. <The bottom line of this theory is that the market works>. The hard part is the supposed exceptions to the market rule, and that's what attracted me to public finance.
