Sir Mark Moody-Stuart, the former head of Royal Dutch Shell, has called for an EU ban on selling cars that get less than 35 M.P.G. Why? Because he doesn't believe in the Free Market Fairy:
Moody-Stuart, who is currently chairman of the mining group Anglo American, says he is a great fan of the free market, "but like most things, they have a failing. Without regulation to channel their power, markets will not deliver things which are of no immediate benefit to the individual making his or her choice, even though they may be beneficial to society."
