    Would you please paraphrase it?

    Hello,

    There is a sentence which I cannot get properly. Here is the paragraph that contains it in highlight:

    The fact that The Economist article was a rare example of a sophisticated
    publication clearly highlighting the nonsense that lay behind so
    many of the anti-capitalist arguments was also thought-provoking in its
    own right. Why is it that there seems to be less high-level advocacy for
    the collective importance of brands than seems justified by the facts?


    Could you please paraphrase it for me?

    Best Regards,
    Nesa

    I'll take a crack at it:
    "Why is there less high profile advocacy for pro-capitalist ideals when the evidence clearly supports them?"

    That's not exactly what the author said but it's what I think he's getting at.

    I agree with Vic's general sense of the sentence. The sentence specifically mentions "brands".
