This short article says a lot. It explains a lot that has been commented on in this blog and it’s comments.
I thought this comment flagged by Kevin Drum, from Martin Wolff at the Financial Times, says a lot:
“Financial systems are important servants of the economy, but poor masters. A large part of the activity of the financial sector seems to be a machine to transfer income and wealth from outsiders to insiders, while increasing the fragility of the economy as a whole. Given the extent of the government-induced distortions in the system, even the fiercest free marketeer should accept this.”

That linked article, which is an interview with a clinical psych who has a lot of insight into narcissism, is one of the best things I’ve read on our botched economic system. Narcissism and a lack of healthy emotional attunement is surely at the heart of this beast.
Thanks for that link.
