My Usual Tweeting Against SF As Prediction and PR

One thing that bugged me in undergrad Political Economy was how some economic projections (the ones I remember were complicated formulas which predicted that this or that global south country would be in this or that place at this or that time) appeared to ameliorate the need for present action and assumed much about what could be, optimistically predicting some radical change in some foreign 'future'.

check out Marx or Proudhon or any of the old "ricardian" socialists.
