Invoking Cloture (Again) on "Serials Crisis = Library Underfunding"

I regret that I must use the moderator's prerogative to invoke cloture
yet again on the recurrent hypothesis summarized in the subject

We have heard the plaint before: The culprit is whoever is denying
libraries the limitless funds to keep paying whatever refereed journal
vendors keep asking.

A little reflection will confirm that no supply/demand problem, elastic
or inelastic, cannot be solved by hypothesizing an evil demon who is
misappropriating the requisite funds.

I shouldn't have let it resurge yet again.
