Economic Update: Capitalisms Uneven Development [Trailer]


In the language of the ancient Greeks
inequality, imbalance, is bad for social cohesion, for holding communities
together. Imbalance is capitalism’s normal way of functioning. The anxiety
born of capitalism that if you have something, and people who don’t get some,
it’ll be at your expense. The important thing is not to think that it’s necessary. This
is not about nature, this is not about automatic, this is not about neutral. This
is a product of capitalism. And you know if we got some more balance we would
have a lot less tension in our society, a lot less division, a lot less bitterness,
a lot less fear, and a lot less hate, because those are all brought out and
exacerbated by uneven development.
