Abstract
From article: "The train is coming. So it's a good time to pause and ask some basic questions, and that's what David Bollier has done in 'Silent Theft: The Private Plunder of Our Common Wealth.' The title might sound hyperbolic, but it is apt. The process Bollier describes is everywhere but rarely noticed. The lens through which the nation's opinion establishment views the world---the lens of conventional economics---covers the process with a gauzy and romantic haze. The market is 'expanding.' That's 'growth' and therefore automatically good."
