Is the NYT really the voice of “intelligent” capital?

My rant for the day!

The NYT likes to think of itself as the voice of intelligent capitalism. Articles like these show just how deep in the sand (or shit) their heads are.

Of course Bloomberg, another voice of “intelligent” capital, didn’t post a link to the Oxfam report so you could see for yourself what they say!

Aaron Vansintjan’s blog post forwarded earlier today is a welcome critique of this worship of growth.
