His book, The World is Flat, includes a full chapter extolling the virtues of Marxism and proclaiming Karl Marx to have been an incredible visionary. You have to read the chapter to fully appreciate the slobbering.

He claims that the previous problem with Marxism was that there wasn't a large enough infrastructure possible to make it work. He's very big on the premise of a command and control economy.

The book is littered with stuff everyone already knew about (taking a Burger King order from another state) and follows up with his proposed solution of mandated government price controls, wage controls, cradle to grave free education and retraining when a job is replaced, elimination of too much or too little profit, and using a slice of the production capacity to create a social safety net.

The guy is a trust fund radical.

A ponzi scheme only works when you have a big enough pool of suckers.

Socialism works until you run out of other peoples' money.
