A good friend, who is a prominent libertarian lawyer, just got engaged. I was joking with him about how we could cater his wedding:
We will order the Roast Chicken from the A.L.A. Schecter Corp, the Steak from the Crescent City Slaughter-House, the cake from the Lochner Bakery, the groceries from Nebbia, bread made from Fillburn’s wheat, have some delicious Carolene Products filled milk, and Heald’s vineyard can provide the wine. And maybe when everyone’s done Angel Raich can provide some of her choice product for the after-party.
But then I realized that almost every economic liberty case involves food. Why is this? What is it about food? I suppose that food is a prototypical instance where the health/safety rationale kicks in. Anyway, random observation.
