Economics Is Counter-Intuitive

People have a hard time accepting free-market economics for the same reason they have a hard time accepting evolution: it is counter-intuitive  Life looks intelligently designed, so our natural inclination is to infer that there must be an intelligent designer—a God. Similarly, the economy looks designed, so our natural inclination is to infer that we need a designer—a government.
