Opinions to stifle if you want to be on the Supreme Court

Judge Richard Posner, currently on the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals (I think), co-wrote a paper in 1978 that argued for a freer market in adoptable children. The basic idea is that some women have a comparative advantage in childbearing. Healthier children and wealthier families would result from a market in which childbearing specialists could trade with others less suited to the task.

As a result, he will never be nominated to the Supreme Court.
