Market failure?

we say that this ideology is failing, I beg to differ. I actually believe it has been enormously successful, enormously successful, just not on the terms that we learn about in University of Chicago textbooks, that I don’t think the project actually has been the development of the world and the elimination of poverty. I think this has been a class war waged by the rich against the poor, and I think that they won.

And I think the poor are fighting back. This should be an indictment of an ideology. Ideas have consequences. - Naomi Klein
