It needs to be said

Of course, we are all rejoicing with the people of Chile, the miners and their families and extolling the achievement of their engineers (with a little help, gratefully accepted, from other countries. A truly wonderful news and, I have to admit, enthralling TV, which I stayed up far too late to watch.

Let us not forget, though, that, as Daniel Henninger says, 25 years ago they would have been dead. They have been saved by innovation made possible by free-market capitalism. That is the truth and amidst the rejoicing we need to say it over and over again.
