Wow.

It's a long and interesting read, but I think this passage sums it up nicely:

"Many of these developments, Rolf points out, have been driven by the belief that an unfettered free market would generate wealth for everyone. Thanks to the RAND study, he says, “we now have the proof that this theory was wrong.”"
