Economics and similar, for the sleep-deprived
A subtle change has been made to the comments links, so they no longer pop up. Does this in any way help with the problem about comments not appearing on permalinked posts, readers?
Update: seemingly not
Update: Oh yeah!

Money talks, bullshit walks, twas ever thus
I don't think I've ever seen an editorial piece where the writer so transparently didn't understand what he was talking about.
Update via John in comments, I am pleased to see that the quality of humanities academia is so high that apparently nothing remotely objectionable has been written in the fourteen years since Judith Butler's Diacritics article.
Update: of course, I've just remembered why the MTBW phrase was wandering through my mind - it's Davos season! Felix's point is well made, but I think the thing about Davos these days is not so much that it's irrelevant, but that it's so terribly dated. Coverage "LIVE FROM DAVOS" in 2011, after all that's happened? You might as well be breathlessly "LIVE - BACKSTAGE AT LOLLAPALOOZA WITH BILLY CORGAN!!", saying "oh my god! I just met Tom Cruise!".
