Following on from yesterday's little rant.
The Market Economy works, period. However, it only works for the participants. That is why the notion of school vouchers is so insidious. The people efected (the students) are not participants in the market.
If it were the children who made the decisions about where the money was spent, and if the economics included travel time and expense, then perhaps it would work. Since these are not conditions met by the experiment I cannot see how vouchers could ever benefit the system. The people with a vested interest have nothing to gain or lose, consequently the free market concept does not apply.
OK, that's me done for a while. Just had to get that off my chest.
