Gabs - I found a blog post about the book:

 

http://zombiecon.wikidot.com/

 

I studied economics A level (that's pre-Uni level in Britain) and was thinking of going to study it further. The only thing stopping me was the realisation that within microeconomics that many of the assumptions made for this so called "social science" were in fact, utter utter bollocks. I spent two years studying a "science" or rather a pseudoscience which was built upon deeply spurious foundations, and everyone believed the theories just because the twat who expounded them wore some snazzy suit.

The culture imperative of the developed world was financed consumption and apathy, while its political imperative was the concentration of wealth and the appeasement of those being continuously plundered. All of those lacking control of productive assets, including both "debtors" and "savers", found it impossible to maintain their wealth, purchasing power and/or service their debts over time. These people were all "workers" who sold their productive capacity in the marketplace, and received increasingly less value for it over time.

what about feminists?

from the Edmonton Journal:

 

 

Cavemen

 

Cavemen stayed home, while cavewomen roamed: study

 

Ancient hominid males stayed close to home while females roamed much more widely, according to a study that has prompted some anthropologists to suggest early cavemen had "foreign brides."

They must have been modern women :)
