Fair enough. This was just regular old cronyism. Not the race to the bottom.
This is why government contracts are broken. You are forced to go with the low bid in cases like this, so you end up with garbage. Yet, you still end up giving away no-bid contracts to preferred cronies like KBR. All the fascism, none of the quality.

Right. His point is dumb. His form of capitalism would require such a burdensome regulatory check the transaction costs associated with it would sink any enterprise. Further, as you point out, everyone would be coerced to comply with said regulation. I.e.

His wrongness was definitely a bit oversold. That said, he was wrong in the strength of his assertion. I have a pet peeve with overly stubborn reductionist thinkers that assert things like "The only reason X happens is because of Y."

I can just imagine how much of a dick he was being. "But... but... it's the air... or something... YOU CHEATED! I'M STILL RIGHT!"

I would debate with a philosopher because it is less dense?
Monthly caps are a bandwidth. It's a rate. I can't, for example, get twice the data cap in less than a month.
