Mutualist Blog: Free Market Anti-Capitalism

To dissolve, submerge, and cause to disappear the political or governmental system in the economic system by reducing, simplifying, decentralizing and suppressing, one after another, all the wheels of this great machine, which is called the Government or the State. --Proudhon, General Idea of the Revolution

Latest C4SS Paper: The Decline and Fall of Sloanism

C4SS just published my fourth research paper: "The Decline and Fall of Sloanism"

It is a direct continuation of the analysis in the previous paper, and both are extended developments of themes originally set forth, much more briefly, in my first paper.

The series, for anyone who wants to read it from the beginning, is:
C4SS Paper No. 1 (Spring 2009): "Industrial Policy: New Wine in Old Bottles"
C4SS Paper No. 3 (July 2009): "Moloch: Mass-Production Industry as a Statist Construct"
C4SS Paper No. 4 (August 2009): "The Decline and Fall of Sloanism"

If you think these papers are worth reading, by the way, you might consider contributing to the C4ss fourth quarter fundraising drive. It's getting off to a slow start, and it's your contributions that keep these things coming. The next one in the pipeline is a further development of the theme of relocalized manufacturing as Sloanism decays: specifically, desktop manufacturing and the household microenterprise. (Of course if you don't like this stuff, you should consider supporting C4SS anyway because of the great commentary by Tom Knapp, Alex Knight and others).

"C4SS Paper No. 1 (Spring 2009)".

That's US-centric. It's spring now.

Yeah, yeah, yeah. You know those things you call "Christmas beetles"? They're really June bugs.

I just checked wikipedia for Christmas beetle and June bug. No, they're not the same.

By the way, a few things got past your proof reading.
