Or maybe one author is (confusedly) observing that ostensible opponents of capitalism do not oppose markets, and the other that markets are not sufficient or exclusive to capitalism. Why either author believes that capitalism still exists on such a scale that it could either be opposed or replaced remains a mystery. Rather, those nostalgic for its paltry blessings should be fighting for it to be re-imposed on the class of financiers and political stage hands that are quite plainly exorcising the last vestige of its spirit from what fraction of the twisted shell of the old is still standing.
If that doesn't work out, I guess I'm reminded of when Lovelock promised us a nice long holiday.
