In defence of Scrooge

Scrooge has a bum rap. Scrooge was a good guy -- at least by 'modern' standards. Argues Steven Landsburg (tongue somewhat in cheek):
In this whole world, there is nobody more generous than the miser—the man who could deplete the world's resources but chooses not to.
Ebenezer Scrooge. Hero to both John Key and Al Gore. [Hat tip Stephen Hicks]
