v. Lars Hernandez, stud. polit.
The financial crisis in 2008 has caused a widespread skepticism about how the economy works. A system, which for most, only seems to benefit those at the top. More grassroots movements (eg. Positive Money) and parties (eg. Alternativet) has come up with fundamental criticism of the way we have organized the national economy after the neoclassical paradigm.
A part of this criticism is a desire to reform the monetary system. It deals with how we as a society generates money, and the role of private banks in this process.
But what is this criticism of the monetary system and the neoclassical paradigm really? Should christians relate to the system? and if so, how? and what are we to think about the growing inequality that underlies much of this dissidence?
