The death of Augusto Pinochet the other day, and Milton Friedman last month, has had me thinking of market fundamentalism. Although I believe the original market fundamentalist beliefs came from the Austrian school of economics, the modern beliefs have chiefly become a US export. And a deadly US export at that, making Saudi Arabia’s Wahabism seem relatively harmless. Granted, it is not nearly as overt in its deaths, but the deaths still remain- and in a much higher numbers.
I saw this essay by noted Indian journalist P. Sainath. The essay, titled “and then there was a market,” brilliantly takes the neo-liberal world view to task. Due to the fact that I am swamped with the last two weeks of school, I thought this week I would lazily link to the essay. It is real short and worth your time, I promise.
