I have a ten year old AMG, and I've had to make minor repairs on my own. Since I owned my car I've had to troubleshoot and fix a Xenon issue, replace the battery and terminal cable (in a parking garage on a Sunday at noon, away from home) replace the crankshaft position sensor (that was a bitch), done the front and… » 3/04/15 11:01am Yesterday 11:01am

How do high barriers of entry help competition or innovation? How do the current infrastructure rules help innovation? We pay more and get less than many other… » 2/26/15 2:08pm 2/26/15 2:08pm
