The closing statements in the Economist debate on the global elite are now up. My side of the motion has easily won the popular vote but for peculiar reasons. As the moderator concludes in his summing up: “we have a curious situation where the bulk of people expressing their views in the comments section seem to disagree strongly with the arguments made by the person whose side most seem to be voting for”. In other words my contributions criticise the elite for holding back progress while most participants have attacked it for promoting economic advance.
