I hate capitalist friction. I have a lot of services that I now are screwing me over to the tune of several hundred dollars a year total - my bank, my cellphone, my cable, etc. - but I can't fix it. For one thing, many of them have virtual monopolies (due the cost of getting into that market), or it's simply too much trouble for me to cancel one service and switch to another, and take the down time of transition, or just all the time talking to customer service, etc. etc. Oh for the idealized fictional world of friction-free economics!
