Description
 
The pattern of debt is what classical economists defined as unproductive,
favoring unearned income (economic rent) and speculative gains over profits
earned by employing labor to produce goods and services. A review of how the
Enlightenment and original free market economists spent two centuries trying to
prevent precisely the kind of rentier dominance that is stifling today's
economies and rolling back democracies to create financial oligarchies. What is
at work is an Orwellian strategy of rhetorical deception to represent finance
and other rentier sectors as being part of the economy, not external to it.
This is precisely the strategy that parasites in nature use to deceive their
hosts that they are not free riders but part of the host's own body, deserving
careful protection.
