Writing from the very region that produces more clichés per square foot
than any other “story” – the Middle East – I should perhaps pause before I say
I have never read so much garbage,
so much utter drivel,
as I have about the world financial crisis.
But I will not hold my fire.
It seems to me that the reporting of the collapse of capitalism
has reached a new low which even the Middle East cannot surpass for sheer unadulterated obedience
to the very institutions and Harvard “experts”
who have helped to bring about the whole criminal disaster.
