All four of my dedicated readers know that I like to keep track of Google links. Well, this one is from William Anderson writing from the Mises Institute (two words for those who’ve never heard of it: "libertarian economics") on the potential for Google’s despoiling at the hands of anti-trust bearing politicians. His point seems to be that such things are more driven by politics than anything else, and that Google has few political friends in a position to help them out if need be. I don’t agree with all his points but I agree that politics drives a lot of silly legislation.
And as I keep saying, I have no doubt the folks at Google can do everything they say they’re going to do. I merely doubt that they’ve correctly estimated how expensive it will turn out to be for them.
Anyway, here’s the link. Enjoy!
