To those (if any) encore interested in analysing what the hell could
have caused the present Crisis, about maths' role, this article, by
Denis Guedj, quite accusatory :

with this key phrase about these mathematicians who sold their soul to
the Devil :

<< ces gens-là ne font pas de politiques, ils se contentent d?être du
côté du manche. >>

[ these people do not do any politics, they just stay on the side of
the oppression ]

My comment : Because, indeed, dear "young Karl" (Marx) is miraculously
reappearing in full light, and his doctrine suddenly exoterising.

Note : Crisis is now spread all over the world. A Hurrah to all
brilliant economists, mathematicians or not, a double Hurrah to all
propagandists of the so-called "globalisation" !

And a happy New Year to everybody !
