Don't think like an economic?

Stephen A Marglin at the Communities dominate brands blog has raised an interesting theory today.

He thinks that thinking like an economist has destroyed the ideal of community.

The ideal is basically the ideal is thinking like an economist usually means thinking "what can I get out of it" which undermines the ideal of a we in community.

I can see where he gets the ideal, though I disagree with the ideal that an economist mind set means someone has to think in a "what can I get out of it" mindset
