Links for June and July 2011

One reply on “Links for June and July 2011”

I would be interested to know how Monbiot proposes to take the type of decision he is railing about, if not by economic calculation. Shall we ask the haruspices ? Shall we draw lots ? Shall we just play safe and ask him ?

Note moreover that he is making a caricature of economic calculation on one hand, and resorting to exactly the same type of logic on the other, when he actually tries to bring in a little objective (and incidentally, justified) criticism. There’s a very good reason for that: economic decisions are taken for economic motives. And why the rant about evil companies ? Is that the man’s version of “ceterum censeo Carthaginem esse delendam”?
