Free market economics is a religion

Critics of the free market argue that the imitation of the laws of life in society is awkward, has no solid basis in the natural sciences and may lead to adverse or unpredictable consequences.

Violet Socks over at the Reclusive Leftist has posted a list of summer reading on economics.

Why is should be ants be interested in the religion of Freemarketism? Well the fresh water economists (Chicago School of Economists) are trying to do what GWB (bushie) could do in 8 years — get rid of Social Security.

My question is what the hell are current workers (those who can find jobs and keep their jobs) do when they retire?? Many companies no longer fund pension funds and saving for retirement is next to impossible for large segments of the population.

Apparently the Wall Street greedy class has looted everything not nailed down and now they have their sights on Social Security — which they want to “privatize” — meaning control and loot. This privatization scam has been tried in other countries — and failed.  Read Naomi Klein’s book Shock Doctrine for all the gory details.

Gee 0bowma is doing a great job for the parasite/greed class.
