No, "said commercialism" is NOT "vital to the economy". Stick to tech. There are already enough people spewing economic fallacies.
As Murray Rothbard once said, "It is no crime to be ignorant of economics, which is, after all, a specialized discipline and one that most people consider to be a 'dismal science.' But it is totally irresponsible to have a loud and vociferous opinion on economic subjects while remaining in this state of ignorance."
I like the rest of the post though. I though the Seinfeld writers made up the holiday.
