"In Bastiat‘s (1801–1850) view, government was (or was fast becoming) a morbid system whereby “everybody seeks to live at the expense of everybody else”."
It's back to Babieca in the Ciudad Vieja this Sunday, April 28th
. This always has two consecuences: 1. We will be getting together at 15:00 (3 pm)
instead of 14:00 (2 pm). 2. It also means that the courtesy of a response is requested, since the restaurant always likes to know beforehand how many people will be coming. So please let me know by Friday, April 27th whether you will be coming
this time, so the number of participants can be passed on to Carla.
Other items of potential interest include:
1. Book Exchange
: One of our number has written in to pass on the fact that "there is a book exchange opposite Disco on Scoseria in Pocitos. Quite a lot of English books there." Given this fact, are we still interested in setting up our own book exchange?
2. The List of 3s
was appended to the Bulletin last week, along with the request for more entries in the two new topics that were added: Things people haven't found here yet
and Things people thought they didn't need, but are very glad to have
. Also, if you know where to get the items, do pass this info on!
Generally, what glaring omissions jumped out at you?
3. Another helpful participant sent a link to "some very useful tax
