Ah. I didn't realize that I just didn't understand the situation as
well as you. Thanks for setting me straight.
If you call a tail a leg, how many legs does a dog have?
Four. Calling a tail a leg doesn't make it one.
As I said, I mostly agree with you in your analysis. The main thing I
differ on is your definition. The market is not free and just calling
it free doesn't change that.
