In 2011 I wrote THE GOLDEN CALF: ECONOMISM AND AMERICAN POLICY to explain and expose the belief system called economism, which basically amounts to the uncritical worship of the so-called free market. I was particularly concerned to shpw how economism was far from being the hard-headed set of economic laws its proponents claimed, but rarther a form of warmed-ovfer religion. I was then prompted to begin this blog as the 2012 campaign progressed and I saw the Republican Party increasingly taking its positions straight out of the economism playbook--and, as always has to happen when trying to sell economism as practical policy, being dishonest about its claims.

I was particularly concerned to show how economism was far from being the hard-headed set of economic laws its proponents claimed, but rather a form of warmed-over religion. I was then prompted to begin this blog as the 2012 campaign progressed and I saw the Republican Party taking its positions straight out of the economism playbook--and, as always has to happen when trying to sell economism as practical policy, being dishonest about its claims.
