Civil Liberties And the Economy

It’s interesting to note the effect that elections and ballot initiatives can have on the economy.  Two states passed measures that would (theoretically) allow recreational use of marijuana.  This morning, not even 18 hours after the polls closed, sales of Pink Floyd back catalogue titles have jumped 82 percent.  In related news, Amazon is back ordered on DVD and Blu Ray titles of the Wizard Of Oz, and sales of Xbox, Wii and PS3 gaming systems and Duncan Hines brownie mix have also increased sharply.  The free market works.
