The following posts provide the easiest explanation for the shabby treatment this thesis has endured at the hands of those with a vested interest in the status quo. The truth, however, continues to be the truth.

Comment on the Austin ASPO Conference
For the record, here is Jay Hanson's list of commonly-known false assumptions in neo-liberal economics:
1. People are Bayesian equation solvers. (The entire argument for market outcomes rests on this known false assumption.)
2. Money is just a medium of exchange. (This known false assumption hides the political power of money.)
3. Energy is just a commodity. (Production is assumed to be a function of only capital and labor.)
4. Debt is neutral to an economy.
5. Wants are identical to needs.
6. The environment is part of the economy instead of the other way around.
