Musings, leadership tidbits and quotes posted by a retired Navy Captain (really just a high performing 2nd Class Petty Officer) who hung up his uniform a bit too early.

That's what economists call a situation in which someone benefits from
the entire community paying for something without contributing
themselves. Free riding may be considered a problem when it leads to under-provision of goods or services, or when it leads to overuse or degradation of a common property resource. (From wikipedia)

Seth Godin is talking about free riders on his blog HERE.
