But I also worry that projects like the Euro show the capacity we now have to create structures so large that they are beyond the scale of human management, given how frail that is.

Our inability to handle the compromises needed to make progress when mistakes are discovered without recrimination and punishment being on the agenda is the biggest issue arising from the Greek crisis, in my opinion.

And I have not got an answer for that.

I do. So stop trying to plan he fucking society you moron.

    Doling out recrimination and punishment is the lifeblood and key purpose of the State, isn’t it? The leopard cannot change it’s shorts, so it should stay out of big, fragile projects like the Euro.

  2. I was in heaven reading this from Ritchie today. The very thing the Tax Research UK blog is dedicated to espousing is succinctly debunked… by Richard.Murphy on the Tax Research UK blog.

  3. I think there will be cheap villas available in Greece soon. Plus the security guards will be cheap too, though they will probably want paying in dollars.

  4. We passed peak idiocy ages ago when the Occupy anarchist protesters were protesting for more Government.

  5. And Murphy does, of course, always do the literary equivilent of cacking his pants whenever it is suggested that he, Murphy, might actually like to run for office to help build the state he so enthusiastically espouses.

    He is, as others have noticed, a cunt.

  6. I am getting quite an education by googling the commentator names from his blog.

    Word of the day, “Dilligaf”

  7. How long before John Carter is banned? He’s shown Ritchie up for the ignorant little provincial accountant that he is, but Ritchie just can’t resist trying to get the last word.

    A better man would accept their error and lack of knowledge; Ritchie will just delete the comments and pretend it never happened.

  8. So Much for Subtlety

    Interested – “I think there will be cheap villas available in Greece soon. Plus the security guards will be cheap too, though they will probably want paying in dollars.”

    Greece? Forget Greece. Remember Argentina! Pretty soon you will be able to buy a very nice 19th century building for chump change. Better yet, the soccer is good, the women are pretty, the food is not bad, and the summer is in winter.
