Econo-what?

OK, drop what you're doing (if you possibly can) and look at this Metafilter thread. The referenced article is just stunning. It gives voice to the fears I've always had about that vague notion of The Economy, and what it really means to humans, but could not express myself for lack of education.

If anyone has solid contrary arguments, I would be very happy to hear them indeed. This seems so solid to me, but I am no economist, so perhaps I'm missing something?

I'm not going to make it through this - there is a grain of good thought in there, but it's too charged with inflamatory judgment riddled terminology to be taken too seriously. I'm actually knee deep in a series of thoughts about how we count dollars and what exactly that means, how important an interest rate really is, and why with more technology we seem to work even more to buy things that didn't exist 50 years ago.

I'm full of tidbits about interest-based economics though, trying to align the good of society to people's selfish impulses. I'm romantic (read stupid) enough to wish we could just inspire people to be socially responsible.
