Post TANSTAAF*
Capitalism at its finest:

Quote:
The women of a remote village in Colombia are on a “legs crossed” strike until the only access road to the area is repaired. The “strike” began in late June and the women want their husbands to join them in their demands on the authorities to fix the road and to help in its construction. They say if they do not get the support of their men they will continue the sex ban.

What Rob said. This definitely had me thinking of Lysistrata, not "capitalism" of any kind. ;)
