    there are some fundamental economic rules & from those fundamentals one can derive some other laws/rules, (debateable whether those could explain it all) the article however makes the same mistake that most economists make, rather than starting & slogging away from there, it simply makes up answers based on its leanings/prejudices then finds a justification for them.

    Have to concede that everyone has a right to express their opinion.
    Hope very few of them think they know all of the answers?
    Sadly...we have Journalists and Politicians who seem to think they know everything

    Never, ever, compare physical laws with soft human inspired laws.

    Murdoch knows this. Which is why has been cocking a snoot at politicos for so many years.

    He knows how to manipulate people.

    Particularly those that think they know what is going on.

    reforming the way?"

    Crystallised. Our distraction as politicians & voters, searching the one for the knowingly false, the other for the hopefully genuine: an image of omni-competence. Our state mis-read, prescription lacking for escape, recent leaders have failed brief chances to free the people, to offer equal partnership, real empowerment for talent & conscience.
