Going forward in 2009
As we move forward into 2009, the accepted wisdom must be caveat emptor. This catch phrase shall be the guiding principle for how we live and engage in all transactions and human interactions. Caveat emptor is the fairest principle to live by. Anyone got cheated is his own fault. He is expected to know what he is doing. We have the best educated population and we can't expect them to be stupid and be cheated so easily. There is no longer a need for institutions that check or audit corporations. There is no need for regulators. There is no need for rules and laws. We can save a lot of unnecessary business cost and time. Every transaction shall go by the buyers beware code, check yourselves before getting into a transaction. Oh, no need for the legal professions too. Contractual laws can be thrown into the dustbins. It will be the survival of the smartests. We shall call ourselves Caveat Emptor country. And we can laugh at all the silly people who got cheated or got rip off. It is simply their own faults. Life will be much simpler.
