Happy Fourth!

Today is Independence Day in the U.S. I briefly contemplated writing something about the notion of independence as it relates to the independent trader but decided that such a post would desiccate a very rich concept. So instead I’m going to celebrate independence, which at least in part includes the freedom to disagree, by linking to a high frequency cartoon version of a quasi-Marxist analysis of the crises of capitalism. I assume that no one who reads my blog comes close to being a Marxist, but this offering by the ever clever RSA Animate is worth looking at. And if you find his argument wanting, there is, naturally, a critique.
