Oh, please. Enough with the peans to the free market. Capitalism is based on the aggrandisement of some at the expense of others, including the environment. It is predicated on unsustainable growth, and the simultaneous need to exploit both humanity and the natural world. Proponents of Smith's 'invisible hand' mythology forget that the invisible hand is regularly followed by the invisible boot to the testicles.

Global capitalism a virtue? Tell that to a Nike slave in Indonesia.
