Chicago is a private school that was originally funded by that vicious robber baron John D. Rockefeller, its reputation as the global center of crackpot right-wing economics was probably inevitable as the foundation stones were laid in 1892. The guy who ordered the Ludlow Massacre would have been prouder-than-heck at the Chicago graduates who were such a major part of the military dictatorship of Chilean Augusto Pinochet. These extreme right-wing economists even called themselves the Chicago Boys. John D. invested well.
