Looks like Nouriel Thingy has been put on a new regime of amphetamines, Viagra and star jumps and is now reaping the rewards with a second wind of bile.

Though it's bombastic, I think there's validity in his views of centralisation and rampant greed. However what he's not acknowledging is that this is a phase in a wider and deeper phenomenon and most current odiousness will be long forgotten.

One odd thing to take away from this article is that the tone of comments is still basically unchanged after many, many years. There's a few exceptions but it's the same old shit otherwise.
