Quoted From Catalyst

"...and to insist that any political theory worth its salt has to be able to connect to the quotidian struggles that extend beyond the economic realm."

Politics is so much more than just economics, but the mass media and economists make it seem like the only thing you should be paying attention to is the market, and their word has a lot of weight, even in the age of social media. For crying out loud, universities and colleges have to often now justify all their curriculum in what their economic relevance is, the academy should be a place of knowledge not petty materialist simplicity. I admit the article wasn't about this.
