Consciousness should be raised for freedom

The Mind of the Market
Michael Shermer
( )

Economics isn’t dismal

Does the world seem bleak on your crystal ball? Is all hope for a gushing economy ominously getting lost in the dreary desert sands of depressing politics? Take heart. “In the long run, no dictator, demagogue, priest, president, or any other pretender to power will be able to control the Googlification, Wikification, eBayification, MapQuestificaiton, YouTubification, MySpacification of information, knowledge, geography, personal relationships, markets, and the economy.”
Thus forecasts Michael Shermer in The Mind of the Market (, a new book sub-titled, ‘Compassionate apes, competitive humans, and other tales from evolutionary economics.’
