Pope not the only interesting New Yorker subject

For some reason, my October 10 edition of The New Yorker didn’t arrive until this past weekend. For a while, I thought maybe Art Pope had engineered some kind of Barney Fife-like scheme to intercept all North Carolina-bound editions, but then Saturday. it finally showed up in my mailbox.

It was fun to re-read Jane Mayer’s piece and to realize that thousands of people around the country were now understanding what North Carolina progressives have been up against for the last couple of decades. 

Interestingly, however, the Pope piece may not have been the best article in that edition.  Last night, I got a chance to read a piece by John Cassidy on the famous economist, John Maynard Keynes. It’s an interesting and informative read on one of the intellectual godfather’s of modern economics. It’s also a useful reminder to progressives that one need not be against “capitalism” to be for economic justice and a strong government presence (when necessary) in the economy. 

Definitely worth a read if you get a chance. Here’s the link to the summary for nonsubscribers.
