I think that you would find that capitalists tend towards effective market
solutions(that is in fact why most of them are capitalists.)

Suddenly, I feel like I should be grabbing your hand and engaging in a
rousing rendition of "Kumbayah my lord."

Rather you or myself like it or not, given the existence of a player
that has the capital to make this idea go, the market now has an
opportunity to decide for itself. 

Perhaps next you might wish to stamp your feet and threaten to hold your
breath until they go away?
