Chomsky on economics and democracy

21 10 2008

“I don’t think it has anything to do with socialism…it has to do with democracy. So, what is being called government intervention, in a democracy, would mean intervention of the population. In a democracy, political motives would mean the interests of the population in determining what’s going to happen next. If we decode the rhetoric, do we want private concentrations of power to make decisions for their own benefit? Or do we want the public to be concerned to make decisions for the public welfare? That’s what’s really behind it”
