A lie is still a lie. When will we relearn this truth? http://bit.ly/2dNMg6U

Moderate republicans & sane conservatives, this is your fault. Top to bottom. You allowed your movement (once pro-science and proudly intellectual) to be hijacked by monsters, lobotomizers, hypocrites and sexual predators. Now you cringe and feverishly repeat Fox-slogans that "at least Clinton is worse!" No. Your nation is in danger and you could help to cauterize the wretched infection that has warped US conservatism. Do not imagine there will be anything left of your movement to resurrect, in 2020, if you do not do your duty now and cauterize your own side's Murdochian insanity.

See this Evonomics article criticizing the effects of Milton Friedman’s dogmas that (1) corporations should only care about short term stock price and (2) skyrocketing CEO pay is endlessly good, even if it disproves market economics because high wages should draw in brilliant competitors. #1 has led to many profitable corps eating their seed corn, taking their reserves and using them to buy back stock instead of investing in new products or R&D or capacity… thus absolutely disproving Supply Side, by the way. #2 proves one thing… that the CEO caste is a conspiratorial cartel.

This is not AdamSmithian Capitalism - which the writers at Evonomics are trying to save! It is oligarchic cheating, and Milton Friedman, their patron saint, should be consigned to the dustbin.

Smart piece by David Brin about the abuse of Adam Smith and Friedrich Hayek by their supposed followers. Worth reading to arm yourself when the kneejerk libertarians start mouthing off about Hayek. If you believe in free markets, you should be extremely concerned about the world's trend towards economic oligarchy.
