Borders Bookstore Closes

The "failure of Borders is a glorious event," and today's closing of Borders Store No. 1 gives us reason to celebrate - it demonstrates that the market forces of: a) creative destruction, b) consumer sovereignty, and c) the profit-and-loss system, are all working perfectly. To quote Anthony Gregory, "If voluntary competition should one day bring Amazon.com down, in the midst of a competing commercial success today unimaginable but even more friendly to consumers than that wonderful online store, we will again have reason to celebrate."
