Market is a verb

In a market economy you have to market yourself. That, for me, is the single most compelling argument against market economics. The fact is, some of us detest everything about sales, marketing and promotion. As Killer says, "The present economy is organized to produce a considerable amount of crap that wouldn’t be needed in a post-capitalist society and industry can be made more efficient if organized differently."

I disagree about your anti-market stance. Even sexual relations and gifting are realizations of market mechanisms.

Killer is right on this, though, but this is a problem created by capitalism, with his profit and propriatarian concepts, not markets.

In a capitalist economy you have to market yourself. In a free-market anti-capitalism economy, you can market yourself, but not necessarily.
