Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

It is amazing how they do not understand that a feudal system is just not possible.. high unequality is possible if you accept not to become mega-uber rich (Brazil and mexican uber rich are not that rich).. but a full feudal system collapses. A system with very low equality can even collapse (Minsky logic or Lehman logic) but a feudal system has no equilbrium point with high technology and a service economy. I think DeLong clearly showed that this is the case... but never mind... they would never read DeLong.. he is an historian or historicist or whatever.. who cares, he is certainly someone not to be trusted..even if once upon a time he was a rational republican.

A pleasure

I therefore claim to show, not how men think in myths, but how myths operate in men's minds without their being aware of the fact. Levi-Strauss, Claude
