[Marxism-Thaxis] Unemployment

2009-02-01 Thread Charles Brown
The radical economist who taught me used the rule of thumb that the real
unemployment rate is about double what the BLS reports.CB

That's what I said on LBO T some years ago, and wow did a certain
individual throw a steaming hot hissy fit over that. Who is your
radical economist who taught you?

CJ^CB: Greg Tarpinian and others

[Marxism-Thaxis] Alain Badiou

On Communism
Alain Badiou in Libération

 
 
Don’t you think that there is a proper compromise between the unabashed 
capitalism of Sarkozy and your antiquated radical line?
Having begun its journey four centuries ago, capitalism, even unbridled, is 
much older and archaic that all the radical lines that one opposes to it. Let 
us cease considering that liberalism, fashionable in the 1840s, embodies 
modernity and reform. It is Communism which is a new idea in Europe.
