I don't usually post Michael Roberts, even though he is a competent economist, because he peddles a lot of dogmatic baggage, and reduces all basic arguments to "that's capitalism"! critiques. Again, its like proclaiming that water runs downhill.
Keep that in mind when you read his summary of the 50th Anniversary of URPE, Union of Radical Political Economists in Amherst, Mass. The list of ideas is threadbare enough to recommend passing over entirely. But the links may be worth chasing down.
Things are usually not nearly as bad ad Roberts makes them out. :)
