Feudalism Update

I somehow missed Oyster's post on the vibrant, guild-and-favor centered economy we have here in New Orleans. What benign liege lords and ladies we have here in our fair market city, to allow 7.5% of enterprising tradesmen and women to participate in a venture!

How inefficient the "free enterprise" system would be that the so-called "republics" use, where they set rules and regulations for all tradesfolk, allow just anyone to participate in a venture by following the rules, and allow "the people" to decide what tradesfolk to patronize with their coin. How much better it is that our wise leaders will make these choices for us!

There might be more news coming directly related to your (substantive) point about this article, rather than my snark.
