The Power of Political Science

So, Yglesias writes a post about the business elite hating the unions. Fair enough; trivial,  but okay – hey, the guy writes a dozen posts every day.

So, Prohvessor Farrell quotes Yglesias and adds Adam Smith’s quote about businessmen constantly conspiring to suppress wages of the workers.

That’s it, two quotes, and no explanation from the esteemed Professor. What does it all mean – we are left to wonder about the mysterious ways of Political Science… Does it mean that the existence of labor unions is justified by owners’ crookedness? Sounds like it. But what if they stop conspiring? What if there is only one employer in town – would it make the labor unions unnecessary?
