Great post about Senator Elizabeth Warren’s appearance with the new progressive economic philosopher, Thomas Piketty. Read the whole thing, as Patterico would say, but make a special point of enjoying Brennan’s final analysis:
. . . Elizabeth Warren isn’t an economic expert or a progressive policy crusader. She’s a talented populist who sells clever but unserious proposals with a sense of academic sophistication that makes Bostonians feel like they’re clapping for someone whose views are an intellectual cut above Ed Schultz’s. In the end, they’re not. But they definitely are clapping.
