Actually, there's nothing wrong with horse meat, but if you sell beef that is actually horse meat, that is fraud, which is not what a free market is all about, but I realize you don't understand that.

Did exactly what? I'm afraid you've been hanging out with Bill Wiltrack a little too long.

I knew that, and mixing horse meat into beef is fradulent unless that is what the customer wants.

What the hell does that mean. How about a concrete example?

The concrete example is the horse meat found in burgers

Now, why did you say your theory was a concrete example?

If somebody puts horse meat in the beef, that is prima facie evidence of fraud. That is not what is meant by a free market. Stay away from economics, my friend.

Unfortunately, fraud is rife in a free market

Now, why did you say your theory was a concrete example?
