Watching the U.S. Open coverage this morning, I saw this piece about how property owners at Erin Hills in Wisconsin have worked with the local Amish community to trade resources and labor for a mutually beneficial relationship. This is a great lesson in subjective value and freedom of exchange. No government officials are intervening, no one is forcing anyone to participate, and no one is setting "fair" wages or prices. Just groups of people choosing to work together...you know, like free human beings. Enjoy.
