Oh yeah. Government tilting the playing field has worked so especially
well to date. It has produced such super abundant societies with huge
surpluses that we should obviously do much more of it. If the
government had not stole so much that the dollar is now worth 3 cents
compared to when the Federal Reserve started then there would very
likely be much much more money chasing physicists and other specialties
than there is today.
