Welcome to Finance and Fury, the Furious Friday edition
Today we will be talking about conservatives and why they are not conserving anything anymore. In particular, the new form of conservatives the neo-con conservatives and the noble lie or the big lie.
Remember the Occupy Wall St movements? And the population protesting the 1%? Some perspective is you were likely in the world’s 1%. The anger should have been directed towards the political systems that facilitated the behaviour that led to the GFC.
It seems like the power dynamic is increasing over time. The representative political system gives the people an illusion of control.
This has been an explanation as to why supposed conservatives don’t act like it or use supply side economics.
We will touch on this again next week when I cover Brexit, where the conservative party keeps pushing the British independence off.
