thanks for clarifying that all up my friend.
i see your point and i can also see how i may have been perceived as being preachy,though that really wasnt my intent.
you and i have conversed before and i guess i was taken aback by your responses but it didnt occur to me that you felt your back was against the wall.

you and i disagree from time to time but we always been decent to each other and i wish for that form of discourse to remain.

be well bubba.

The narrator is indeed strongly biased, but the pieces are nicely divided on all sides. You mention there are bigger names in economics. Which ones? Id be interested in reading them.

In reply to this comment by renatojj:
Interesting article, I wouldn't call it a good summary, but a biased assortment of opinions. Economics has, unfortunately, become a very convoluted subject permeated by politically motivated rationalizations and borrowed thinking. Not all of it is lost, though.

Is there anything in particular that stood out for you that you wanted to show me, was it the alleged defender of free markets' expert opinion on its impracticality? : There are bigger names in economics that have stated the exact opposite, it doesn't mean anything. If you have doubts about free markets, bring them forward, try to understand at a basic level why they wouldn't (or would) work. I assure you it'd be more a fruitful exercise in understanding economics than to rely on foregone conclusions.In reply to this comment by rbar:

Nice summary of some current thoughts on free markets ;-)
