Economic Barbarism and the neo-conservative agenda

by Rich on Sat 08 Dec 2007 10:04 AM PST Profile Permanent Link I forgot to add when I posted this article, that the disaster Capitalism practiced by the Chicago School of Economics authored by Hayek and Friedman and a standard practice of the neo-conservative agenda is, in my opinion, the incarnation of the Economic Barbarism Sri Aurobindo refers to in the Human Cycle.

  • Do you think that the Chicago School economic fundamentalists believe their Friedman gospel will lead (eventually) to a better world for all (via "trickle down" or whatever)?
  • Or are they self-serving through and through, with no need for justifying rationales?
  • Re IY, I'd be interested in your perspective of how SA's essay on "The Principle of Evil" (posted on SCIY by RYD a couple of weeks ago) might relate to such horrifying practices as the shock doctrine? ~ ronjon
