23 Things…

I went out with a friend on Saturday who was reading a copy of Ha-joon Chang’s “23 things they aren’t telling you about capitalism”. He didn’t know that the ASI/Tim Worstall published a refutation of Ha-joon called “23 things we ARE telling you about capitalism.” Anyway, for anyone who hasn’t read it. Heres a free copy – LINK

  1. 2 quotes,

    “The graphic designers who used to work at the factory were counted as manufacturing workers: now they
    take their cocaine in Soho lofts they are service workers.”

    “There is no point in becoming more efficient at making Simon Cowell for example, as we all have a surfeit already. And
    so it is with things that are manufactured.”

    – i think perhaps x factor could be counted as manufacturing.

  2. “… we all have a surfeit already. And so it is with things that are manufactured.”

    Haven’t we just spent four months running around like headless chickens regarding a shortage of facemasks?

  3. well yes, demand did spike somewhat, and i bet the extra rushed production a) was very profitable and b) not as efficient as the normally supplied numbers, coz it didn’t need to be.

    Stop deleting people’s post because you don’t like them; doing so makes Tim a publisher not a carrier
