coase.jpg科斯(Ronald H. Coase):每当经济学家看到他无法解释的现象——这样或那样的商业行为——他就在垄断上找理由。而由于我们在这个领域是非常无知的,所以也就有着大量无法解释的现象,于是在垄断上找理由也就成了家常便饭。(One important result of this preoccupation with the monopoly problem is that if an economist finds something — a business practice of one sort or other — that he does not understand, he looks for a monopoly explanation. And as we are very ignorant in this field, the number of ununderstandable practices tends to be rather large, and the reliance on a monopoly explanation is frequent. — Source: Coase, R.
