Inequality as a euphemism

It is interesting that as economics is reformed by the catastrophes caused by neo liberalism, economic debate has moved to inequality.

Discussion of inequality is always discussion of power and abuse. Always.

The economic transition from neo liberalism requires a critique of power, I wonder if the journos lauding Thomas Piketty, know what that can of worms means for them…

It’s quite reassuring, that as this system gets to its most psychotic phase, in denial of it’s obvious unravelling, that that is something economics is beginning to recognise.
