Response to TBF (Reply #6)

7. You just saved me some money...

and a portion of the remainder of my life not wasting, as you say, time on something we already know.

I seriously have no problem with the French -- they just keep coming up lately -- but did this Frenchman just hustle the economics world? "Our Marxism is so vastly superior to yours, infidel swine," like a really nasty French waiter.

They say this book has taken the world by storm because now it is possible to discuss alternate economies after the failings of the capitalist trickle-down economic theory the world has been engaged in for so long, and the economic inequality is now so pronounced.

Really? I mean, really?

I am glad I didn't buy this book.

Not that there is anything wrong with buying the book, reading the book, or the French!
