Yeah, Utah's one of those, what is it, 5 or so economics departments where
the unusual is usual. Out of 3,601 colleges and universities in the US in
1991, 2,157 of them 4-year?

I used Marxoid as a jokey way of saying Marxian, i.e. someone strongly
influenced by Marx, to avoid the doctrinal straitjacket of calling someone
a MarxIST.
