Certainly not by me, Jurriaan. My attempted analogy was technical, not
political. On the other hand, I do not think orthodox economists are all
talking nonsense all the time, so I do not mind (critically) appropriating
their insights. (Nor is this meant to impute any view to you, one way or
another, on the 'scientific' value of orthodox economics.)

Comradely greetings,
