Daily effects of indoctrination 2, part 5 

Today's daily effects is an interesting one. On the surface I should support the idea that a voluntary transaction is being applauded for building community. But suppose the kids on the block want $20 but the guy in the next town would do it for $10. Should I sacrifice $10 to build my community? Suppose I use this logic as a means of supporting import restrictions? I know, it only says odd jobs, but I actually hire someone as my handyman, whose livelihood depends on selling me his services.

Background of this series here.
