Naked Capitalism brings you the debate. Is a SLICC better understood as
A military doctrine or political process that appears to exist in order to justify its own existence, often producing irrelevant indicators of its own success.
“Solutions” that amplify, to a rentier’s profit, the very “problem” they claim to solve.
Or, I might add, is the main distinction between these definitions the stance of the analyst, either as a neo-liberal theorizer of bureaucracy vs. a Continental with a philosophic bent towards self-reflexivity and systems theory?
