Even commies get the blues

Well, I don’t know about the blues, but apparently they like Diane’s book. Hooray for commies with good taste in summer reading!

“An Unreasonable Woman” by Diane Wilson (published by Chelsea Green). A true autobiographical story that is as engaging as a good novel. Written by a fourth-generation commercial fisherwoman in Texas who gradually got drawn into leading a fight against a multinational polluter and regulators who turned a blind eye. The writing style is stunningly original, full of humor and irony, authentic dialogue, and rich images and similes.

PS: no offense intended towards socialists of whatever stripe. Honestly. I’ve got beautiful hardcover editions of Capital, volumes 1, 2, and 3 on my shelf at home. I’ve got a hunch that at the asymptote, a neoclassical model of the purely competitive economy converges with a Marxist model using the labor theory of value, though my math skills are way too sucky to ever be able to prove it. So please forgive my use of the term “commies”–it’s a blog. Blogs are snippy. Right?

Core to the concept of a Lean Economy is understanding the need to move toward a “slack” market rather than one that is “taut.” When British economist David Fleming died unexpectedly in 2010, he left […] Read More

Prehistory of the Next American Revolution

What now? A new Revolution? If we are to counter the dangers both of corporate domination and of traditional forms of socialist statism, decentralization is essential—both of economic institutions and of political structure. We are at a point in our nation’s history that could, decades from now, be taught as the prehistory of the next […] Read More

The Seven-Point Protocol for a Lean Economy

In the future, what will our local economies look like? How will they function if there is little, to no, state or national support?
