“Tyler Durden” also covers the video at Zero Hedge and quotes a part of the video:

fundamentally neoclassical economists are the priests of Capitalism, but the priests don’t necessarily know there is god.

And they don’t even realize that they have erected a smokescreen behind which if people want to rip the system off, then there is plenty of avenues created by these guys.
