    That’s a great post. Just don’t forget to hammer home that the misconceptions and blame runs both ways.

    It ties nicely to this article, arguing over similar ground. It’s perspective is from the angle that private enterprise has been viewed as uniquely strong and there’s now a backlash against that.

    But what I’m drawing from you both is exactly that a dispassionate, honest and accurate view of therelative strength of economic actors would help us all.
