GNU, GPL, Open Source Eric S. Raymond is one of the three big figures in open source, together with Linus Torvalds and Richard Stallman.

Has he not seen the recent economic market take a rather large nose dive because there was zero control to stop companies being moronic?
It might be tedious but it keeps us all honest.


I know this is not an economics blog, but just for the record, not everyone agrees with that explanation. For instance, see:
