Let's play spot the errors with Russel

Here's an exercise for economics students. Go through Russel's recent homily on why the Greens are needed to save capitalism from itself, and see how many fundamental economic errors you can spot. I count eight, which isn't bad in just 549 words. How many can you do? I'll wager that Austrians and students of economic history will do better than others.
