it's about labor

Matt Stoller, former Open Left blogger and assistant to the recently (sadly) deposed Rep. Alan Grayson, has been writing for Yves Smith's blog Naked Capitalism. He ties together Egypt and Wisconsin through the connecting thread of organized labor resistance to neoliberal "tough love" scenarios (not the Facebook revolution, sorry).

Beneath the smiley face of the neolibs lurks this scary quote about "liquidation" from Herbert Hoover's Treasury Secretary.

Update: The case against neoliberalism, from an Egyptian writer.
