Noam Chomsky: The Assault on Public Education http://bit.ly/HhdVuE
While many of Noam Chomsky's view are far too left-leaning for me, I found a lot to like in this op-ed.
I particularly liked the Adam Smith reference:
"In short, when they have the opportunity, "the Masters of Mankind" pursue their "vile maxim" [ all for ourselves and nothing for other people,] as Adam Smith explained long ago."
Obviously, the vile maxim is the opposite of my motto: "Create more value than you capture."
I also loved this quote from Martin Wolf, senior economic correspondent for The Financial Times:
"An out-of-control financial sector is eating out the modern market economy from inside, just as the larva of the spider wasp eats out the host in which it has been laid."
