The Economics of Good and Evil
by Thomas Sedlacek
Economic orthodoxy is all about seeking constant growth in our GDP. For that to happen, people must buy stuff, and because most people are not lacking in what they really need, the economy must stimulate desire for things they DON'T need. Marketing and advertising stimulate desire for stuff we don't currently have which makes us work harder and produce more, and and so the economy grows. Economists trot out numbers and charts to illustrate the growth effects of wanting more, working more and buying more. But Tomas Sedlacek dares to challenge this scenario in which Homo Economicus sees his existence as the endless pursuit of profit and possessions.
