More on “Wanna Bet”

More on the details and reasoning behind Dr. Boudreaux's bet:

"My prediction is that, as long as ours remains a reasonably free-market economy – and, for all of its imperfections, I'm predicting that the U.S. economy will continue to be 'reasonably free market,' and one that, despite the absurd protectionist efforts of the likes of Sens. Sherrod Brown, Lindsey Graham, and Chuck Schumer, an economy increasingly and (hence) beneficially integrated in to the global economy – our increasing prosperity and the global-economy's innovation will make Americans increasingly safe from the worst effects of tornados, floods, and hurricanes.

By the way, not only will Americans become more protected from these weather events; peoples in other market-oriented societies will, too."
