The Economy, Monopoly Man, & Banking and Finance – Episode 11

The Economy

It is entirely possible that we could reorganize our economy so that each person can be involved in a wider variety of tasks, perhaps even working in each of the three sectors. This may sound like regression, but human beings are not made to perform a single task every day for their entire lives. If anything, industrialized work appears to be an aberration. Not only would people benefit from variety in their work day, they would feel a greater proprietorship over what they produce. Furthermore, if we were able to provide for even a few of our own needs directly through our labor, it would increase our sense of fulfillment.

Monopoly Man

“Seriously?! Don’t you see that this is just a microcosm of our own economy, and you’re playing the part of the super wealthy? You act arrogantly, you take advantage of others, and you think that it is all due to your own ability when it is almost entirely a result of your initial advantage?”

Banking and Finance

We are too enamored with the Gross Domestic Product. Something is perversely wrong with a measurement wherein a traffic accident that totals a car is seen as a positive because of vehicle replacement and medical costs.
