: The more of Adam Smith I read the more I'm convinced the man was a bloody marxist,

I'm sure Stoller would argue otherwise.

Its not that capitalism has been 'betrayed' as such. The problems are more complex. Some people have called corporatism, with its crony ism in government, 'socialism for the rich'. In other words they buy exemption from competition by using the power of government (in a very much voluntary two way deal).

That people dont seem to care is alarming, that people think this is what capitalism is all about is more so.
