The Inevitable Conspiracy

Readin' along on a little Adam Smith this eve, ran into a passage that suddenly struck me askew of the usual angle.

Of course, Smith was imminently suspicious of business interests, basically wishing that "People of the same trade" ought not to meet together. Ever. Because, as Smith asserts, "the conversation ends in a conspiracy against the public, or in some contrivance to raise prices."

Adam Smith, precrime precog.
