Ah. must be some error in the tags, 'cause the quote you were referring to didn't show up until I quoted your post. I guess I don't see Fascism as a state controlled economy so much as an economy controlled state, which isn't exactly in conflict with what you said, but seems to square it in some way with the coordinate plain model. In any case, Fascism on the coordinate plain would tend toward "free" economy, but draconian social restrictions. It's just a model, and therefore no better than a simplifying aid. We can stretch it as far as we want to make it fit, but in the end, it's not going to find a perfect place for all of the particular states / economies that have come and gone. Yeah, Rummy is funny. Obviously, I would argue that it's a misnomer that deregulation promotes increased competition and trade, but even if we accept that notion, we quickly run into problems in policy: most far right capitalists favor any policy which seems to give them an advantage (protectionist international trade policy, for example) which runs against the idea of a purely deregulated economy.
