Video fine Keynesianism?
I heard Gordon Brown at the G 20 say "The first step to kick starting the world's economy is for Mr. Hamilton to pay his video store late fees"
The friend who sent this message has been following the campaign against conspiratorial worldviews on this blog and sites like All Embracing but Underwhelming with a certain amount of pity, and he has recommended this youtube clip as a case study in conspiracy theorising. I can't watch the clip at the moment, because Muzzlehatch visited my home a week ago and used up all of my download quota watching cheesey Robert Wyatt and King Crimson performances from the '70s. I'm hoping that someone who hasn't suffered a similar indignity will be able to explicate Aaron's clip in the comments box under this post.
Of course, not everybody in the British Isles, let alone the world, thinks that Gordon Brown is the best man to handle the global economic crisis. In a typically succint post, David Osler explains why the protesters besieging the G 20 summit deserve respect, and why the notion of overthrowing capitalism is not a logical absurdity, no matter what the Daily Torygraph's columnists claim.
