@FT : the Italian Election debacle, Almost Marx comments

To The Financial Times editors :

Your unstinting advocacy of the Neo-Liberal swindle, from The Iron Lady & Reagan to the dismal present of Macri & Macron, and its ignominious collapse and consequent immiseration of the 99%, again announces the watershed of the catastrophic nature of that economic romanticism ! More hand-wringing about The Rebellion Against the Elites, rhetorically transmogrified into the latest iteration of  FT Speak as the Populist Menace!

Almost Marx


About stephenkmacksd

Rootless cosmopolitan,down at heels intellectual;would be writer. 'Polemic is a discourse of conflict, whose effect depends on a delicate balance between the requirements of truth and the enticements of anger, the duty to argue and the zest to inflame. Its rhetoric allows, even enforces, a certain figurative licence. Like epitaphs in Johnson’s adage, it is not under oath.' https://www.lrb.co.uk/v15/n20/perry-anderson/diary
