  • Richard B. McKenzie
  • Gordon Tullock


It is only human for one to feel sympathetic toward the person who dies with everything going wrong; a malfunctioning liver, arteriosclerosis, a defective kidney, ulcers, respiratory problems, and waning eyesight. However, such a tumultuous exit may indicate that the individual involved has more thoroughly enjoyed life than the person who dies with only a failing heart and everything else in perfect order. If this is the case, the sympathy may be misplaced.
