Raj Patel: The Value of Nothing
Raj Patel talks about economic models in a way that points out a number of significant problems with the free market one and highlights some of the the ones that are working.  Remember Mr. Greenspan's testimon before Congress? "I found a flaw in the model that I perceive is the critical functioning structure that defines how the world works, so to speak." He refers to a book that is to be published and was published this month, The Value of Nothing.
