<nettime> something about nothing

"Without cash in a market society, you’re free to do nothing, to have very little, and to die young. In other words, under capitalism, money is the right to have rights. ... The gap between what people earn and the cost of their freedoms means that, for more and more Americans, freedom is just another word for nothing they can afford."

-- Patel, Raj (2009). "The value of nothing : how to reshape market society and redefine democracy." New York: Picador.
