Today's New York Times includes a translation of an essay by a French literary theorist, Ilias Yocaris, arguing that "the fantastic universe of Harry Potter is a capitalist universe" and that the series "appears as a summary of the social and educational aims of neoliberal capitalism."

I'm amused. Somehow this seems a very French thing to be arguing.
