The most important question not being asked; What is the purpose of an economy?

http://youtu.be/GxRtVgks6eQ

"The economy its there to serve the fundamental needs of society, which include prosperity, stability, and contentment."

Necessitous men are not free men. Liberty requires opportunity to make a living - a living decent according to the standard of the time, a living which gives man not only enough to live by, but something to live for. -Franklin D. Roosevelt (President 1933-45)

Necessitous, I like this word. Those that NEED jobs are necessitous, they need a way to get the 'chits' required to simply live, in this corrupted system we find ourselves embedded in. Culture is an amorphous dream, and it has been manipulated in the last 40 years, to distort the systems, that once aided society, into systems that now, aid only the few,. at the expense of the many.

Great post, jph !!! This IS the most important and over-arching question that we should be asking!!

An economy should work for ALL people to make for a healthy society, NOT just corporations and the wealthy few!

I dont think it has a purpose, I think it is the result of humanity all living together. Its a symptom, not a cause.

Try watching the posted video? You may learn the answer to this simple question. It is difficult to pronounce any other use of an economy than the one given,. well, difficult to do so and be taken seriously, by anyone other than the 1% and their pathetic toadie supporters, who never get anything near what they dream of, while supporting those holding them down,. pathetic.
