    Especially when you declare one side as 'none existent' and the other side as real
    Did you look at any of my supporting arguments?
    and that you buy into Mr. Mirowski's premise that 'neoliberalism'  dominates the world intellectual stage.
    I presume you know a lot of global elites who are planning to revive socialism and/ or populist Keynesianism?  I didn't think so.  Neoliberalism rules the world stage, and the few countries (such as Venezuela) who don't implement neoliberal policies are marginalized.
    Generally I don't find your diary particularly helpful.
    Maybe next time I'll put out a diary on "neoliberalism."  A good number of people here seemed to think they could argue against my use of the term without knowing what it is.

      I read your entire diary.  I just don't agree with your points, that's all in applying it to this whole Obama sux/rox meme.   I suppose it is rather interesting to have an academic discussion on neoliberalism, but short of also discussing what we are supposed to replace 'world neoliberalism' with and how -- it's not very practical with respect to actionable items.

      Also Cassiodorus -- I know what 'it' is.
