Public Address 21 November 2012 - Triangulated by Fools

Triangulated by Fools
9:22 Nov 21, 2012 in Hard News by Russell Brown

The spread of market mechanisms into every facet of life – as health, education and the environment get treated as mere commodities – has seen economic efficiency worshipped in its own right as a totem, and as a substitute for morality.
