The Subprimes: a novel of the Piketty/Klein apocalypse


[Read the post]


Killer graf, especially the first half.


Isn’t that cute that the WSJ would have you to review a book that teases and pokes sticks at the conscience of its plutocratic readership. For them is the science a fiction, or is the idea we have a problem here the fiction?


What if like every other apocalypse this one doesn’t happen?

In any case, millennialist/doomsday stories are so passé.


What if the apocalypse happened and nobody noticed?


What isn’t so passé? Even pointing out that particular trends are so passé is so passé. Godamnit, even this question about what isn’t so passé in response to a declaration that a trend is so passé is so passé.
