The Asylum of TerminalFrost

Rearranging me ’til I’m sane

Ugens citat

Okay, så der er to ugens citat. Sue me.

Fra en nyhedsartikel i Berlingske forleden omhandlende (hvis jeg husker ret – jeg har ikke andet end citatet, som jeg rev ud af avisen) de tyske partier de Grønne og FDP’s reaktion på, at dømte medlemmer af Rote Armee Fraktion nu står til at blive løsladt efter endt dom:

“De Grønne er det demokratiske resultat af studenteroprøret – de aktivister, der ikke endte som terrorister, søgte typisk til dette parti.”

Quote of the Week

“…it is interesting to compare the approach to measuring the social costs of rent seeking just described with the attempt by Phillips (1966) some time ago to measure “the social costs of monopoly capitalism.” He too proceeded by adding different items from the national income accounts. His criterion was different, however; namely, activities that existed under monopoly capitalism that would not exist in an ideal socialist state. Thus, he included all defense expenditures, since in 1966 these were solely intended to protect American capitalism from Soviet communism. (…) Interestingly, Phillips included all the income of lawyers as part of the social cost of monopoly capitalism. (…) Phillips also included all advertising. When he finished his list summed to 50 percent of GDP.”
