I’ve stated numerous times in the past how JGW and leftist economists have areas of basic agreements. Unfortunately, I don’t think he can bring himself to give that economic analysis any serious consideration. To bad, as I’ve found classical and Marxist economic analysis to be very helpful in understanding who’s interests are being served and why.
Modern economic theory, on the other hand, is coercive and often gets applied at gun point. We have many examples of this application in the current economies of the world, our own included.
It’s my chief objection to liberalism. Conceit at best, lethal at worst.
