The Parable of the Amazon Farmer
Troy Camplin

I have to laugh at the notion of naturally-occurring emergent complexity when applied to economics, particularly Anglo-American capitalism. There is nothing whatever ‘natural’ about this system. Markets do not emerge, they are engineered. The legal infrastructure which supports this system is painstakingly crafted to achieve certain outcomes and to benefit particular individuals.

The thumb is always on the scales. It is only a question of whose thumb. Complexity don’t enter into it.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
