I guess I need to get around reading this book from 2007. But it's the title of this post from the Mises economics blog that caught my attention: Pittsburgh Laughs Last. The book it is talking about: The Cinder Buggy, a fable in iron and steel, which I take is fiction. So I am guessing it's somewhere in the nexus of Ayn Rand meets Valley of Decision? Yet I don't quite get the tone of blog post in itself. It seems to be holding up Pittsburgh as an example of what success Libertarianism can bring. I do realize that must not be what it wants to imply, but it is saying Pittsburgh is this positive example of transformation. So I guess it's one more voice out there trying to take credit for all the success raining down on us. Gone are the days when everyone was more focused on blaming everyone else for the state of the region. Good thing we all work together so well which is part of the secret sauce.
