Excelente libro de Tyler Cowen, un optimista incurable, sobre el efecto positivo que tiene la sociedad capitalista en el arte.
"The whole purpose of culture is to enable us to live out our days in a perpetual under-tide of ecstasy. Let not the differences in our personal tastes or political views dim the chorus of this ecstasy."

2005 La Posta del Viñatero Malbec 'Angel Paulucci Vineyard'
S. Irene Virbila
September 6, 2006
The name La Posta del Viñatero means "tavern of the grape grower." Though the Paulucci family's history with winemaking goes back to the early 1800s in Italy, the family has lived in Argentina only since 1953, when Angel Paulucci was 21. Seven years later, he planted his first Malbec in the Mendoza region.
This wine is made from a special block of vines planted in 1970 in Ugarteche that produces a deep ruby red wine, dark in tone, with a taste that's reminiscent of Cabernet Franc. Think juicy red berries with a pinch of spice and a light note of oak. Full-bodied, this is a wine that needs food — steaks, chops, ribs, gutsy cheeses.
Did I mention that it has a very attractive price-to-quality ratio?
