He is my new source of amusement. My thought process regarding the economy and orders of the world are different from his in that I don't subscribe to a Marxist understanding of the economy, specifically the labor theory of value. I think that subjective theories of value are more sensible. The kind of economic order that follows from my point of view is radically different from Zizek's. Because I support more subjective theories of value regarding economics, I tend to subscribe to a more market-oriented position. I don't know how possible it is to plan an economy. My middle-ground answer with regards to this subject is to say that I prefer a more mixed-market arrangement because markets aren't perfect after all and need to be corrected for failure. Anyway, the role of state planning is up for debate. I generally oppose this as a matter of course because of my preference towards more market-oriented arrangements. This brings us to Zizek. Because he subscribes to the labor theory of value and traditional marxian criticisms of capitalism, his perspective of what the world will be like going forward is notable. He believes that the future will be utopian, a reality where whims are instantly satiated. Despite our differences in foundational economic preference, I am inclined to agree with Zizek. I do think that the future is headed in that direction. My plan is to read more of his work because I'm dumbfounded as to how he arrived to his foundational understanding of the economy.
