Australian Left Review


McKenzie Wark


Someone asked me the other day whether I believe in a 'free market economy'. I've been getting a little tired of the usual, obvious answer to this question, so I came up with a new one. What we really need, I said, is a free market in economists. This is a simple proposition which would add immeasurably to the common wealth if implemented. Since it is consistent with their doctrines, I expect a stampede of support for it from our 'economic rationalists'. In fact, it is a proposal so rational I can't imagine why they haven't thought of it themselves.
