Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Even Thomas Palley (who so far as I know was not close to any of the primary election contenders), imho, has stumbled badly in his policy prescriptions the past few months. It is extremely disheartening. In a way, the problem is more cultural than anything else. We have to attack the Anglo disease every opportunity we get. I think one more big financial shock like Bare Sterns, and the Big Crack will begin.
I have been googling a bit for Thomas Palley and I found a November 2007 paper criticising Financialisation which would seem to be another name for "Anglo Disease".
