Thanks for the tip on Martin North, he seems very interesting. I do not invest in property (except my actual place of residence) because I feel that our property market is based too much on the assumption that the good times will continue to roll.

I've heard the Mussolini quote before, but I think many people misunderstand what the term "corporatism" might mean. If I'm being generous, it's probably a poor translation, but really I think this is an intentional misunderstanding for ideological purposes. Now that I actually tried to find the source of this quote, and it turns out that snopes.com has an article on it, which I only just found. You should read it, but the main point is:


....
In other words, corporatism in Mussoliniís fascism was not a free-market capitalist system. Far from it. It did not allow for the kind of competition, innovation, market entry, and research and development characteristic of modern capitalism, and it was closely ruled in every way by the state with Mussolini at its head.

Anything that draws a direct link between what are now referred to as corporations (large, powerful private companies operating in a modern free-market capitalist system) and Mussoliniís corporatism, is founded on a misunderstanding ó most likely caused by the similarity between the words.
