I’ve taken tests like this before. Very interesting to see where people end up.

Here’s the test:

Can always agree to disagree

This apparently puts me closer to Milton Friedman then anyone else. Not surprising really since I'm an economics student.

I think I got closer Raider (which is my favorite team in any event!).  But good to see you are learning your economics well (I have a degree in the field as well).

Not too far from what I expected, but some of the questions could use a neutral vote.

I had a problem with a lot of the questions. The one about bottled water, for example, assumed tap water wasn't fresh or not available, whereas here it is both fresh and available.

I think the idea behind the bottled water question is whether you think some things are too "sacred" or "fundamental" to be considered commodities...

As an example, some Native Americans would consider buying and selling land fundamentally flawed since land is something for all to enjoy...

But yeah, that was a rather odd question....

Entirely predictable.

And water IS... too fundamental to be a commodity sold in the name of profit.

For mine, bottled water is a crime against humanity and its purveyors should be fined heavily.  Why?  Because most, if not all bottled water sold as spring or mineral water is in fact 'town' water that's been filtered, and therefore fraud/a crime.

I've never bought bottled water... never will.  If I want filtered water I'll do it myself... even flavour it if desired.

If you want Bali Belly...go to France and drink their water....from a tap.

That's why they're the world's greatest makers of cheap, crappy wine....

Oh....the hit-rate was about 100 out of 160 .... RMIT Architecture tour.....1973.  [I was one of the 100]....

Ah, but I'm not going there... or anywhere OS.  Thus my chances of bad tap water are minimal... given all ours is filtered to remove additives, impurities and other crap.

As for crappy French wine, not a drop will pass my lips... nor will I partake of it intravenously.  Never fancied wine even when I was a drinker, so it's not on any current or future to-do lists.

Well...re bottled water...when it's actually more expensive than petrol it's really getting a little silly....but then the 'liquid' which is far more expensive than blood.....is printer ink.....

Printer ink is pretty fucking crazy expensive.  When I run out of ink, I think to myself "Should I buy a new ink cartridge or just throw out the entire printer and buy a new one...same fucking price".

I thought it had more to do with the idea that certain necessities should be provided to people on a non-market basis by the government, versus put up for sale in an open environment. But your interpretation makes sense too.

Eh...that actually may be the case...it certainly would make more sense from a modern perspective...

I saw some ultra-expensive bottled water in a cafe fridge once... $7.20 for 600ml of peach flavoured [most likely tap] water.  If that's not frickin' criminal I dunno what is.  Worse still, Coca Cola, not satisfied with sales of Coke and other pollutants they stick in bottles, got into the bottled water scam and flogs of mega-litres of the stuff, calling it spring water when we all know the Coca Cola factory is nowhere near a f**king spring.  And I'm sure they truck it in from some distant spring when town water is so cheap/readily available.

but then the 'liquid' which is far more expensive than blood.....is printer ink.....

Ah, but there's always refills. I rotate two sets of ink cartridges and I have refilled them by a local company @ 25 bucks a time.. that's for the black and colour tanks.  Not only is the quality good, the ink lasts somewhat longer than the Epson stuff.  Same when I had a HP 3-in-one, which drank ink just thinking about the job at hand.

I love bottled water. We always have some nice 16.9oz bottles and some of the smaller ones too for our little guy.
