Douglas Ruskoff: Economics is not Natural Science

An excellent summary of Rushkoff's Life, Inc. His thesis: economics is a pseudo-science designed to make modern market capitalism and libertarian values seem like an outgrowth of natural human when in reality all it does is serve the interests of the few. It's a must read for anyone who has ever watched Fox News or treated the Wall Street Journal as source of news. And then they should, like, shut up, forever.
