What Is The Real World?"

Don Boudreaux:
" Indeed, Senator, because I understand that statutes and legal rulings have effects far beyond those which are seen, I dare say that I am more aware of the real-world than are those – such as you, Senator? – who typically judge a rule to be good or bad based exclusively upon how it affects a single or a few identifiable persons.

Senator Biden, the issue isn't whether or not the real world matters. We all agree that it does. What separates you and me, Senator, is that I don’t ignore that part of the real-world that is less visible than that relatively small part that attracts the attention of politicians and the press."
The entire piece is well worth reading.
