Capitalism’s New Clothes
Posted by Larry Doyle on February 24, 2009 8:47 PM |
In the midst of this economic turmoil, I have heard many people question whether Americans will truly change their profligate ways. Will our belt tightening occur in the proper fashion? Will we instill disciplines in the most impactful and effective areas of our lives? Or is belt tightening for others?
Peter Singer, a Thought Leader, and another of our Economic All-Stars (see left sidebar), opines on these topics in Capitalism’s New Clothes. I appreciated his piercing review of whether we will truly display the character and integrity to bring about the changes that our society so badly needs.
I hope you enjoy this piece by Singer as well as the wealth of fine writing from around the globe and collectively delivered at Project Syndicate. Hopefully these great minds help you navigate your own economic landscape!
