Today, October 26th, 2011, the New York Times publishes my op-ed on the causes of the current crisis. Awesome.
How come? I’ve been making this argument for 25 years, anyway, what changed? The times caught up to me? OK, stupid question. I got better at expressing the argument? Possibly. I know who to thank for that.
I think it’s a matter of need. Our times need radical thinking–paradigm shift and all that–but the radicals who are thinking don’t (maybe can’t) want to be part of their times. The exception to this rule can be found in Zuccotti Park.
Anyway, you all, have fun with this op-ed.
