this is argument through metaphor, or is it "analogy"? one might say that
investing in the stock market is the moral equal of investing in the 18
century slave trade.

I still think we need some insight into the relationship between production
of value and this form of gambling. who is dealing the hand? G.S.


CB: Whose the house and whose he suckers.  Does the stockmarket distribute wealth more
evenly , or does it contribute to concentration of wealth with an illusion that
everybody can be a winner ?
