Economy Beyond Ethics

September 28, 2011

It is important that we find ways to turn our moral concern about economic disparity into an economic system that works toward repairing those disparities without depending on moral good will. A system where ” a nation of devils,”as Kant would say, would solve the problem of disparity. As long a we stay in the ethical models, in models that stress the choice of the individual to do good, the advantage of giving and withhold will always rest in the hands of those who control the surplus of wealth. I think too that we will end up playing a no-win game between altruism and greed.
