wtf? daniel

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?
