Buy something day

Buy something today. That's the message from LibertyScott, who's fisking the Buy Nothing Day, and the know-nothing mouthings of those promoting it. As he says, the Buy Nothing Day
is an ill-conceived attempt to make people in wealthier countries feel guilty about their consumption, based largely on the theory that everything that exists on earth is part of a zero-sum game.
Don't buy into it. Read Scott instead.
