Benjamin Barber (the author of the polemic, Jihad vs. McWorld) has an editorial in the LA Times today. Its title is: “Overselling capitalism: Why today’s markets are headed for disaster unless there is a shift in focus.” At first the editorial looks like a pretty standard entry in the growing line of comments suggesting we deny credit to the poor–you know, for their own good. But then it really goes off the rails.
