Unexpectedly Intriguing!
May 2, 2005

This week's Carnival of the Capitalists is hosted by INCITE, the blog that makes you want to rise up and protest (this space intentionally left blank)! The best posts of the week include:

  • The Conservative Cat, aka Ferdinand T. Cat, looks at the charts and graphs showing the relative income growth of the rich and poor and used to advocate wealth redistribution, then throws water on them.
  • Pardon me for interrupting your reading, but Rick Cecil's "Guidelines for Interrupting Others" offers a checklist to review before deciding to interrupt someone from what they're doing.
  • Seth Godin. In two words, that's what the Marketing eYe is focused upon this week, discovering that "you can learn more about marketing by observing what Seth Godin does to sell his books, than by reading his books themselves."

Meanwhile, given the theme of incitement, the Uncapitalists have a Carnival too! This week's Carnival of the Uncapitalists is hosted by The Meat Eating Leftist. Among the more interesting contributions this week:

  • Richard S. (aka the "commie curmudgeon" of No More Big Wheels) notes that "at present, the prospects for a world libertarian socialist revolution look pretty bleak," and finds fault with the leaders of trade unions for not engaging new recruits.
  • Logical Meme takes the occasion of McDonald's recent announcement that it will begin taking the orders of it's drive-thru customers from remote call centers based elsewhere in the world to reflect upon outsourcing and what it means for the future.

I should also note that this latter post was also featured in this week's Carnival of the Capitalists, but I found it to be more fun to list it with the Uncapitalists!
