The Homer Simpson Economy on Feed 44

C4SS Feed 44 presents James C. Wilson‘s “The Homer Simpson Economy” read by Tony Dreher and edited by Nick Ford.

While the Simpsons is better known for its liberal or progressive politics, “Homer’s Enemy” gives left-libertarians, individualist anarchists and anti-work activists much more to bite into. Indeed the Homer Simpson economy bares some resemblance to what these groups want to see on a sustainable and fully realized basis. That is an economy where opportunities are plentiful, barriers to entry are nonexistent and one can support herself without high levels of effort, education or expertise. The libertarian left argues that removing government imposed obstacles to attaining wealth on one’s own terms, is the first step towards creating this economy.
