    Interesting reading http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2016/may/31/witnessing-death-neoliberalism-imf-economists?CMP=twt_gu

    “IMF economists have published a remarkable paper admitting that the ideology was oversold.”

      Yeah, but we need for them to admit that it’s a total failure.

      From the 1980s the policymaking elite has waved away the notion that they were acting ideologically – merely doing “what works”. But you can only get away with that claim if what you’re doing is actually working.

      Thing is, capitalism has never worked. 5000 years of recorded history proves that.

    Why would a Herald link cease to work ???

    I know I’ve bagged the herald before for being a dishonest right wing rag who ran a counterfactual dirty politics smear against Labour at the last election …..

    But they have this link to a story where John Shewan is involved which looks like they could be telling the truth …… however it seems to be removed or something http://blogs.nzherald.co.nz/blog/show-me-money/2009/7/25/banks-tax-dodging-tantamount-theft/?c_id=3

    The link is from another herald page : http://www.nzherald.co.nz/business/news/article.cfm?c_id=3&objectid=10601998 …. it’s at the bottom of that pages story regarding westpacs high court trial and is titled ” “Bernard Hickey:Banks’ tax dodging tantamount to theft”

    I’m tech illiterate and perhaps there is a legit reason clicking on the link boots you off their server ???
