By your own admission (and I agree with you), there has never been the sort of free market round which this discussion is centered.
So, we agree that the conditions necessary to validate/invalidate that hypothesis have never existed. Therefore, conclude that what I said has NOT
been proven false.
This is not to suggest that I am infallible (I'm not) nor that the argument is unfalsifiable, nor that the argument cannot
be invalidated (maybe it can). But if you're interested in discourse you're going to have to do better than sloppily unsupported assertions that contradict your previous comments.
