Martin: What do you think about his Marxism comment at the end of the article? Is there danger in that? You should come up with an economic theory to separate old economist names or they will waste time dividing people instead of solving problems. I do not know what that will be. I do see what he was getting at with his Marx comment regarding your book. It is what I thought.
Marxism has not worked well anywhere that I have seen, it can’t. Capitalism is the main driver of technology advancement so far, but the short term perceived cruelty of it always tends to drive people to push for change. What of the future? I don’t think there will ever be a good system.
Thanks for all these excellent links Martin – it’s great to see that you and your book are getting the exposure that you deserve !
