Noam Chomsky - Free Market Fantasies: Capitalism In The Real World (1997)

"When this CD was recorded (in 1997!) there was no way for Noam Chomsky to know how economist Milton Friedman's Laissez-faire ideology on financial markets (as adopted by Ronald Reagan from 1980 going forward) would fail by 2009, and lead to complete financial collapse in global markets. All of Chomsky's 1997 commentary here on so-called free markets for the masses - with a nanny "bail-out" state for the rich - is so prescient as to be uncanny. Chomsky's 'old' material is like a ten year audio road map to the present and how/why we are burdened with a failed economy today. Chomsky's eleven-year old observations on "free markets" are so precise, this material is actually far more relevant today than it was in 1997! Trying to find the right adjectives here, Noam Chomsky proves again that he is truly an astounding intellect, and one of the profound commentators of our time. Five stars." (Customer review on
