Haiku of the Day:

Sophistication / Of models — the clandestine / business of reason.

Quote of the Day:

“All systems either of preference or of restraint, therefore, being thus completely taken away, the obvious and simple system of natural liberty establishes itself of its own accord. Every man, as long as he does not violate the laws of justice, is left perfectly free to pursue his own interest his own way, and to bring both industry and capital into competition with those of any other man or order of men.” -Adam Smith, The Wealth of Nations
