Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
A major part of the antipathy of the corporate class to much long term government planning by elected governments is that they are private governments engaging in long term planning, and they view their interests as best served if the long term private corporate government plans can proceed unhindered.

And the massive blind spot of neoliberal fantasies about the economy is the fantasy that allowing all of the long term private corporate government plans to proceed unhindered except in conflict with other private corporate governments will lead anywhere but system crisis.

I've been accused of being a Marxist, yet while Harpo's my favourite, it's Groucho I'm always quoting. Odd, that.
