    1. Stuart,
      Yes, one of many lessons and thought-provoking points made by Mr. Rahman. It took some time to pick up off the floor and re-attach my jaw after reading his lengthy and direct article. Without getting into details, an economic system that combines the most beneficial features of capitalism and socialism can be developed. A “meet in the middle” grandest of reforms/compromises, so to speak, along the lines of social democracy. Hopefully Chomsky, Wolff, Hedges, Negri etc. will engage in debate after reading Mr. Rahman’s critique, as the points he makes deserve/earned him a response.
