Impatience of the Intellect, or Why We Confuse Things with the Word "Socialist"
AbstractWhy indeed? Is it not obvious that a normal, full-fledged, developed market is inconceivable without private property? The term "socialist market" is by definition a contradiction, is just as nonsensical as the expression "socialist cold" because the market, like a cold, either exists or does not exist. There is no third possibility. Either socialism or the marketâ¦ one or the other. The time has come to clarify matters, to get rid of ideological clichÃ©s, to stop deceiving ourselves if we are really concerned about the interests of the cause, if we intend to create a normal market economy.
