Shouldn't there be some discussion of Yugoslavia's distinctive economic model? 14:17, 13 December 2007 (EST)

I'm not sure. If it furthers the mission of: 1. Analyzing and refuting the anti-science movement, ideas and people. 2. Analyzing and refuting the full range of crank ideas. 3. Explorations of authoritarianism and fundamentalism. Then yes. Does the present article do this?--Bobbing up 14:19, 13 December 2007 (EST)
The present article does "not much of the above" - but someone who knew something about how the Yugoslavian economy and its collapse in the late 1980s was latched onto by ethnic nationalist groups to fragment the state and ultimately bring about civil war, ethnic cleansing and genocide could probably link that to questions of fundamentalism and authoritarianism.

Well I'm gonna attempt to write (5 years after the request) smth about the more or less unique Yugoslav economic model. With regards to establishing link between the failure of that model and the rise of fundamentalist tribalism (followed by the Bosnian genocide) it may be necessary to take a larger swing because there is some involvement from the Reaganites and other power players.
