Why you shouldn’t bother reading The Economist

One of my resolutions for this year is to convince everyone to stop reading The Economist, so here goes.

Get a bottle of Worcestershire sauce, and print out this web page. Cut out the following sentence:

Governments should be wary of the perils of over-regulation.

Now pour some Worcestershire sauce on the piece of paper. There you go, I just saved you ten bucks. (If you didn’t already have a bottle of Worcestershire sauce, too bad.)

Still not convinced? Read this Crooked Timber post on everyone’s favourite anonymous neoliberal blather and the Great Famine.
