Err, Xah didn't sound offensive to me.
If I take "For those of you ignorant of the basics", literally (wich I
think was intended), the only way to be offended is to have an
*uninformed* different opinion.  I took this phrase personally because
I *am* Ignorant of the basics.  The book he proposed may convey a
particular ideology, but  I can't assume so.  And no, I have no right
to say anything about economics, until I have a clue beyond my salary.

Now, I may have misunderstood you. Sorry If I have.
