Who said it's your job to interrogate me and that my job is to answer
ill-conceived yes/no questions of ignoramus vintage? I'm not a
president and you're not a journalist at my press conference. I don't
have to answer any of your questions if they don't interest me.

All I'm saying is your sanguine faith / superstition in "mathematical
economics" is not allowing you to think clearly and intelligently
about providing health services to a needy world.

In contrast to what I'm doing, which is actually quite substantive
compared to anything you've written in this thread so far.

I'm sketching real future prospects whereas you're talking about
numbers and money, like some DC-based cube farm policy wonk.

Between the two of us, I think I'm doing the useful work of
brainstorming a future, whereas you're parroting the way most USAers
think and talk: weak in STEM, close to incoherent about the future.
