Hello world!

The title of this blog, The Vile Maxim, is taken from what Adam Smith called “the vile maxim of the masters of mankind” in his The Wealth of Nations

All for ourselves, and nothing for other people, seems, in every age of the world, to have been the vile maxim of the masters of mankind.
Book III, Chapter IV, pg.448

It is the contention of this blog that this is what neoliberalism precisely constitutes. As such the purpose here is to demonstrate this thesis through running commentary on contemporary events and developments.

I have another blog that deals with my professional concerns, The Nuke Strategy Wonk, which of course shall attract a higher priority than this one.

This blog here will cover everything else from neoliberalism through to general intellectual commentary.
