Peace of Mind - Boston

by Brian ORoark

Competition is the standard we shoot for in market structure.  Consumers are generally made better off as prices fall, output climbs, and new products come to market; however, in this song by Boston, the idea that we compete with others in terms of status may lead to undesirable outcomes.  Perhaps peace of mind is more important than a greater piece of the pie.
