American Secular Religion

I'd like to draw your attention to a parenthetical comment made by Paul Krugman this morning on his blog. It was made in the course of a discussion of the volume of freight moved by train in the US vs. Europe.
Still, there’s an important residual difference, probably due to the U.S. absence of border issues, more market incentives (yes, markets are sometimes great — but they should be seen as a tool, not an object of religious devotion), and maybe other factors.
Can I get a hallelujah?
