Failure to anticipate the global financial crash that began a decade ago was expected to precipitate embarrassment, if not a major crisis, for the economics profession. Even the Queen of England publicly asked why economists had got it so wrong! Ten years on, the storm has evidently been weathered without fundamental change to mainstream thought and practices. Public attitudes to the economics.

    So what sounds good in books, cannot work in real life with real people! I believe the theory of communism was never wrong, but I think the way that it was implemented was wrong.

Karl Marx did most of his work in the British Museum in London, the city to which he fled because his revolutionary activity elsewhere made whole nations dislike him.

I found "What's Right What's Wrong" to be a wonderful tool for parents and educators to bring about discussion of moral and ethical dilemmas. My children loved being challanged by the questions raised in this book and had spirited debate as to "what is right and what is wrong".5/5(2).

So if you ask me the thing wrong with Marxism in theory, I will tell you it is the additions made to Marxist-Leninism which is the main issue. As it turns out, authoritarianism is terrible even when a commie does it and democratic centralism is a good excuse to suppress dissent.

The point here is: a shitload of progress has been made since feminism’s second wave in the 60s and 70s.

So much progress has been made that some people (feminists, even!) are becoming concerned that men are actually going to be left behind soon. But the problem is that, like I said, feminism, in the process of enacting all of the progress of the last 50 years, became more than a.
