Me Grey recently published an article titled "The Ideology of Capitalism" which addresses the crisis of capitalism. In this article, he argues that the failures of capitalism are not an accident or a result of the actions of a few unprincipled men. Rather, it is a harbinger of things to come – loss of employment due to technology and globalization, a world without the myth of constant growth, tension between ethnic and national groups which seek to tilt the scale in favour of their group, a constant need for more radical technology and a fear of its unavoidable frightening side.
Me. Grey is the second attorney in Canada who has been to the Supreme Court the most, having clocked in over 50 appearances in front of the highest tribunal in the country.
