By John Ross, author of Unintended Consequences. Apparently he's been around this from the beginning.

I'd like to know more about this, I've read UC several times and it's a great read.

Saw that. Didn't really surprise me. A blind squirrel occasionally finds a nut.. This book seems to be a departure but I sincerely doubt he's in league with Chomsky or Palast. Besides, he used the word neo-liberal in a perjorative way and he's talking about Mexico. Hardly a real capitalist economy, it's more like a fiefdom of uncles and cousins.

What brought it to my atention was I got an email from Amazon that mentioned that I'd bought UI and was I interested in another book by Ross.

Apparently there are two John Ross's. One's a libertarian (the Unintended Consequences author) and the other a communist sort (hence the Zapatista connection). Sorry for the confusion but the information on these two was fairly scarce. One reviewer mentioned the difference and so I checked it out. Neither used a middle initial.

Here's the site for the author of UC. www.john-ross.net/ross_in_range.htm I think he's planning another book.
