    Minority view? You know this how? I think you need to back that up. Good luck. Especially when you so badly misunderstood what it says. You say "seeks to explain away reasonable conclusions like regulatory failure" when in fact that's what it points to as the problem, regulatory failure. You were arguing the problem was deregulation, when it was regulatory failure. Even your link states that.

    No.

    Do you have an argument? Explain what you think your link says. Commit yourself.

    he's notorious for that.
    Whoever criticizes capitalism, while approving immigration, whose working class is its first victim, had better shut up. Whoever criticizes immigration, while remaining silent about capitalism, should do the same.

    It backfires a lot and that's because he grabs links and pastes them here without reading them. I doubt he even opens them. That he never learns his lesson is a little weird.
