I actually didn't read Jim's article carefully but obviously this 
business about capitalist wusses is dyed-in-the-wool Spiked online 
stuff. When they were the RCP, you would see arguments like Jim's in 
their magazine LM but after they morphed into libertarians, they 
dropped the Marxism stuff altogether and nowadays sound like Atlas 
Shrugged. If I find some time, I might dig into the overaccumulation 
question by looking at Anwar's articles.
