I couldn’t have said it better myself

“Perhaps it is time to remove neo-liberal economists from public debates. A pleasant reservation, well stocked with monopoly money, could be set up where they can idle away their days negotiating contracts, invoicing each other and avoiding the sort of everyday cooperation and sharing most of us take for granted.”

So blagged an invite to the wearable arts afterparty. Well, I did help two of the stilters for about five minutes, so I reckon that makes me crew.
