Economics Lost in Translation
Discussion of Sofia Coppola’s Lost in Translation
from an apologist for capitalism. “Murray’s character seems to serve as a focal point for the movie’s main theme: capitalism destroys art. . . . The city serves as a symbol: Tokyo is where art comes to die. This is a theme repeated throughout the movie.”
Is the movie arguing against capitalism, per se? (Matthew Hirsch, Ludwig von Mises Institute, 28 Nov 2003) Worth reading, but not perhaps completely persuasive.
