Distributivism

I just read a "conservative" blog that praised the loony-tunes economics of G.K. Chesterton. I am not one of those who call Chesterton a fascist or who compare him with Oswald Moseley. I am willing to forgive someone for misjudgments. I am not, however, eager to embrace his economics just because there were elements of his politics he was right about. By the same token, I am not willing to agree with everything his friend Belloc wrote either. The worst part about the article that the blog linked to was an unwarranted attack on the Acton Institute and the late Father Neuhaus as Calvinists. (See my prior blog "Fake Scottish People".)

I like the big guy and his friends, though his is more of a school of social thought than of economics.
